Celebration Cards

Celebrate

Hello there!  I hope you’re having a wonderful and safe holiday!

Today’s card is a quick and easy one using the Warp Speed stencil from Altenew and the Celebrate die from My Favorite Things.

I started by using a foam blending tool to blend Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink over the stencil and onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock.  Then I cleaned the stencil, rotated it a bit, and blended on Candied Apple.

I die cut the sentiment three times out of scrap white Recollections cardstock and once out of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  On the Bristol Smooth die cut, I blended on the same colors to create a striped effect.  I glued all four die cuts together, with the inked die cut on top, to create a chipboard-like embellishment.

I adhered the sentiment onto the background, bending it slightly into an arc before I weighed it down with an acrylic block to hold it in place while the glue dried.  To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!

  1. Beautiful card. I tried to read the rest of your post from my email and it popped up suspicious link…do you know why that would happen??? So I came to word press to read your post. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you! I’m not sure why that happened. I think the internet fairies weigh many different factors when deeming an email suspicious and it’s so hard to tell what mood they’re in on any given day ;p
