CAS To My Friend

 

Hi Friends!

I had a chance to spend some time this morning to create a quick Clean and Simple card using the Our Daily Bread Designs April 2017 Release Stamp Set, To My Friend along with previously released Pierced Rectangles Custom Dies.


If you have not had a chance to visit the ODBD Blog or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- so much inspiration in the challenge galleries as well as posting throughout the month on the ODBD Blog! 

To create this card:

1). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the Pierced Rectangles Custom Dies.




2). De-static the die-cut panel with an embossing powder tool, ink the larger dandelion image  from the stamp set, To My Friend with embossing ink, then immediately re-ink into black ink before stamping onto the die-cut panel.  Apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

3). For the sentiment layer, repeat the above steps 1 & 2 using the sentiment from To My Friend.

4). Using a stencil brush, apply green, yellow and blue distress ink over the embossed images, mount the larger panel onto black cardstock, trim close to the edge before adhering the white card base.

5). Mount the sentiment with dimensional foam to the card front and use an extra fine white paint pen to add highlights to the dandelion to finish off the card.


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and I hope you have a blessed week, sweet friends!

A lovely spring-like card with those pretty, fresh colours and clean background setting them off to perfection! The floral stamp is so elegant and draws the eye without being too obtrusive or concealing the gorgeous inking... love it! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

That's a superb card Julie! The dandelion clock image is so striking and dramatic against the super soft and delicate blending of pastel colours on the background. Such a lovely CAS design. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

This is so pretty, Julie! I love the soft ink blending and crisp stamping. Those delicate touches of white really pop too. Thank you for playing along with us at Less is More :)
