Creating a quick card and tag.

 

                                                                                                             

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Card making was the plan for a quick creative time. I needed to get into my studio to do something creative but had limited time so I decided to do a simple card and tag.  

 

For the background, I used my very loved glimmer mist in coffee.  I then used glimmer mist in violet to splatter a bit of color to pull from the florals.

 

 

For the floral, butterfly, and leaf images I stamped in black archival ink.  I then passed it through my Sizzix die cutter using the magnetic plate.  I love this magnetic plate. It helps so much withholding the dies down.  

 

To add color I decided to use my color pencils.  I hadn’t used them in so long and thought I would try to blend the shades to get a soft effect.  After I colored the floral bloom in, I decided to add some glimmer mist in a violet shade to complete the look.  It has a very pretty shimmer effect and blended the pencil coloring even more.    

Once the pieces were dry I attached them to my card base.                  I raised the butterfly with a foam pop dot.  Stamped the hello in black archival ink and it was done.                                              

   Very simple but beautiful card ready to send to a favorite person.

 

 

 

 

 

To create the tag I started with a pre-cut kraft colored tag.  I next added a scrap piece of printed cardstock to add texture.  

     I then applied white      

 paint using my finger to lighten

 the background.  I love how this added so much interest to the background.  From there I just simply used the feather stamp randomly and added the floral cluster too,  

   For the girl, I stamped and fussy

 cut her out.      

 

      To add color, I just randomly tapped into my ink pads to give her hints of color.  Finished off with a simple border stamped at the top and bottom.   “Let him speak to you”   was added in black ink. So simple but meaningful handmade tag to send to my sweet friend.
