Card #16 – “A Just Because” Card
I started by assembling all my supplies.
I used blue textured cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11 1/2″) for my base, orange textured cardstock (3″ X 3″) for the border frame, white cardstock for the stamping and patterned cardstock for the accent strip.
I first stamped my flower images using Distress Ink and my bee image using black ink. I colored the bee in with my Distress Markers. When I was finished with the stamping, I adhered the piece to the orange cardstock frame and then to the blue cardstock base.
I found a piece of scrap white cardstock and stamped the ‘hello’ sentiment. I cut out the disc and inked it with Versamark ink. I then poured clear embossing powder on the disc and heat set it with my glue gun. I did this step three times to give the disc a resin-type look. While this cooled, I glued the accent strip to the lower portion of the card, rounded the corners of the entire card and tied ribbon around the accent strip. I tied one knot, thread the ‘hello’ disc onto the ribbon and tied the disc on. I trimmed the remaining ribbon.
I finished the card by using Glossy Accents on the center of each flower and pouring clear micro beads into the glue. Micro beads are the donut holes of the bead world. They are the centers that are left over when they make seed beads. The pictures don’t do this card justice, but this affect gives the card dimension. The Glossy Accents starts to dry pretty quickly, but I’ll leave it over night to make sure I don’t smudge the centers.
Here is the finished card.
