September 19, 2015

Hello my crafty friends! It’s Raquel Mason here today.  I’d like to show you how to make an easy masculine anniversary card with a colorful background.  Let’s get started!

  1.  Cut vanilla card stock base at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4.
  2. Cut Soft Finish card stock at 3 1/8 x 4 3/8.
  3. Cut white card stock and Transparent Double Sided Adhesive at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the white card stock, remove release sheet and cover with Silver Silk Microfine Glitter, brush off excess and polish with your finger.  Here’s a video where Els shows how to apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
  4. Die cut the following pieces shown in the photo below:
  • Flourish Gift Frame – dark brown
  • Happy Anniversary – dark brown
  • (2) boots from Props 6 – dark brown (use a white gel pen for stitches if desired)
  • (2) small stars from Props 6 – small scrap of white card stock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive already applied then cover with Silver Silk Microfine Glitter
  • Western Edges – horses & barbed wire light brown (sponge horses with brown ink if desired)
  • Gift Card Accordion – stitched label – white (not shown)

5.  Stamp sentiment from Homegrown Greetings using dark brown ink onto the stitched label cut in step 4

6.  Swipe desired colors of ink directly to the Soft Finish Card Stock, use a sponge to blend colors slightly so they overlap.  Using a spray bottle filled with water, spray directly onto your hand then flick the water onto the cardstock.  Let dry or use a heat tool.

7.  Assemble all layers together using the photos for placement.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and feel inspired to try it out yourself.
