Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in to share with you a little just because card! In a year filled with crazy ups and downs, one of the things that has become a positive in the year is I have started sending friends and families cards just because I am thinking of them. I am not waiting for their birthday or a holiday, I am just popping a note in the mail and saying “I am Thinking of You!” So with all of these simple no reason cards heading out, I have been upping my game in types of cards I am making and I find ECD’s Ilse and Charlene line of stamps and stencils are perfect for just these moments.
Step One: Stamp and heat emboss small floral images from the Spring Fling stamp set onto a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Rose Gold embossing powder.
Step Two: Using colored pencils, add a little color to the insides of the heat embossed flowers.
Step Three: Blend some ink around the edges of the cards stock. I used Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide.
Step Four: Using the Dot Dot Dot stencil, blend ink through the stencil onto the cardstock. I used Scattered Straw Distress Oxide and a dirty blending brush.
Step Five: Using the Story Telling stencil, blend a contrasting ink. I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide.
Step Six: Stamp one of the girls from the Earthy Girls stamp set onto a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the image in with colored pencils. Fussy Cut out the image.
Step Seven: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the background cardstock to an A2 card frame. Add the trimmed girl to the card face using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
