Cards for Crafty Friends-Part Two

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back with more cards for crafty friends after such a great response from THIS previous post…

For all three cards, I started by adhering THIS watercolor card stock on top of THESE top folded cards. I adhered the texture side face up to add to the watercolor theme. I stamped, colored, and cut out three of THIS image. I die-cut lots of THESE wood grain frames and adhered three together for each card for dimension.

For the first card…

I stamped THIS paint blob image using a rainbow of Hero Arts Bold inks. I white heat embossed THIS sentiment on a strip of black card stock. With all the cards, I was going for look of an art piece framed.

For the next card…

I kept it more subtle. You can’t tell in the picture but I lightly stamped THIS background on the panel inside the frame with a gray ink. I white heat embossed a sentiment from THIS same stamp set as above.

For the last card…

I stamped the paint stripe from THIS stamp in the same rainbow colors. I heat embossed a sentiment from THIS stamp set.

Before I go, I have a bonus card to share…

I stamped, colored, and cut out the images from THIS stamp set. I die-cut THIS box twice from white card stock that I stamped with THIS background and adhered them together to create the scalloped box. I die-cut the layer inserts and adhered them inside with THIS strong tape. I adhered the pieces to the layers, but needed the watercolor image to be taller, so I adhered it to the last layer with a strip of THIS to act as a stilt.

It’s hard to see in the photo but I stamped all the opening flaps with THIS background and added THIS sentiment to the front flap.

The box folds flat to fit inside a standard envelope with minimal bulk…

I hope this has inspired you to create some cards for crafty friends.
