Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards

Hello Friend

20180718_112026

Hi there, I hope you’re having a great day!

Today’s card is an almost-one-layer card featuring the Bitty Burst Turnabout stamp and the Bold & Brushy stamp set, both from Concord and 9th.  

I started by stamping the turnabout stamp onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  I rotated my cardstock four times and stamped in four Altenew colors: Rouge, Crimson, Lagoon, and Rocky Shore.  I really love the size of this turnabout, it’s very easy to work with to create a fun and colorful background very quickly.

Then, using individual letters from the Bold & Brush stamp set, I stamped the word “friend” in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I did a practice run first, stamping on a piece of scrap cardstock.  Not only did this help me get a feel for how to connect the letters, which was actually quite easy, it also gave me an idea of how wide the word would be.  I used this sample as a guide for spacing my letters on my stamped background.

Next, I heat embossed the teeny “hello” stamp from the turnabout set using VersaMark ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder onto a piece of black Recollections cardstock.  I used a small piece of foam tape to adhere this to the background.

To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
