Today she has two gorgeous cards to share with us. Lets hear it from Berina..
Hello everyone! It's Berina here today and I'm so excited to be a part of the Tubby Craft Design Team. Today, I've made 2 cards using the Tubby Craft Perfect You stamp set.
I love this wreath from the Perfect You stamp set. I decided to do no-line coloring on it with a soft and subtle color scheme.
- Stamp the wreath and the sentiment on white card stock with grey ink and trim the panel to 3" x 5 1/2"
- Color the image. This step is my favorite! I used Copic markers to color them. The colors I used are - RV29, RV14, RV13 and RV21 for the flowers and C7, C5, C3 and C1 for the leaves. I also added shading to the tiny leaves.
- Adhere this panel on to a grey card stock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Then adhere the grey panel on to an A2 card base.
This is a tri-fold card with lots of gold embossing. I made this card using a 4 1/4" x 10 1/2" card stock panel (slightly smaller than 4 1/4" x 11", the standard A2 card base size).
This picture shows the card with the first fold open.
This is the inside of the card, with both folds open, where I have stamped the sentiment.
Here's how I made this card:
- Take a card stock panel of size 4 1/4" x 10 1/2" and score it at 3 1/2" and 7". This makes the tri-fold card base.
- Starting with the outer most fold, die cut a circle on it. The size of the circle is just a bit larger than the wreath image. Stamp the tiny branches with embossing ink and heat emboss it with gold embossing powder.
- On the second fold, trace the circle die cut position with a pencil very lightly, to help position the wreath stamp. Stamp the wreath image with embossing ink and heat emboss it with gold embossing powder.
- Fussy cut the inside of the wreath with a knife.
- On the inside of the card, stamp and emboss the sentiment with gold embossing powder, so that the sentiment is visible through the hole in the center of the wreath.
- Color the wreath image on the second fold. I used some inexpensive water-based markers to color this.
This tri-fold card kind of looks daunting at first, but is actually pretty easy once you start making it.
