White Ink On Kraft – Thanks Card

The card I’m sharing today is a simple Thanks card…I keep thinking of ways for using Kraft cardstock with coloured cardstock…and for this one I chose a pink theme…
I started with a light pink card base and a kraft cardstock top layer…using white pigment ink and a large swirly pattern stamp on the kraft top layer – sorry this stamp set was unbranded so I don’t know the name or manufacturer – I repeat stamped the image to create the background…
I then die cut a small section for the top of the card using white cardstock and a stitched scalloped edge die..I also embossed this section and used seedless preserves distress ink lightly to ¬†enhance the embossing…I placed the die cut sentiment ‘thanks’ using pink glitter cardstock and placed it along the edge of this section…
Once the top layer was ready and placed onto the card base,I used Rhubarb Crumble Nuvo crystal drops to embellish this card…
Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Post#26 Bokeh Effect Card

A bokeh effect card background has been on my to do list for a very long time…every time I looked up a tutorial,I thought it wasn’t my cup of tea as it involved repeating a lot of steps which involved heat embossing etc……I wanted and easier and quicker version so I came up with my own technique for this card …
I started with a stencil and mustard seed distress ink and printed circles in various sizes all over one section of the card….then I did the same with clear Versamark ink and covered the rest of the section lightly with mowed lawn and shabby shutters distress inks and a bit of mustard seed distress ink as well….and lastly I used white pigment ink to lightly print a few circles here and there…
The sentiment is stamped on a circle and attached to the paper bow using a gold string…
Hope you liked this card…
