I’m back again with another card for Atlantic Hearts! I also have another process video to share!! I’m having a lot of fun creating the process videos and think it will become something I do on a very regular basis!!
For my card I started with a white cardstock base. I next added a layer of Whisper Cardstock. When I initially saw the sketch (which is posted below) I immediately thought the tag in the sketch was tucked into a pocket. So I used a bone folder and made score lines to create a pocket. I also added a scallop border edge along the front flap.
I wanted to add a little texture to the card so I grabbed white acrylic paint and painted a messy background on the Whisper Cardstock. After the paint was dry it still didn’t have the look I was going for. I grabbed a little more paint and a polka dot brayer to give the cardstock more coverage and to add more texture. After the paint was dry it was a little too bright so I added a layer of vellum. The tags I’m using are cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge on 3 different colors: yellow, dark blue, and an orangey pink. Those tags coordinate with the CTMH Packages, Boxes, and Tags Stamp Set. I stamped images from that stamp set in Versamark™ Ink and used white embossing powder to make those images pop off the cardstock.
I added stitching around the border of the Whisper Cardstock and across the Baker’s Twine bow I added on the scalloped border. To finish things off I added a silver puffy heart to the center tag, Clear Sparkles and Baker’s Twine through the holes on the tags.
Now take a look how it all came together!!
I hope you’ll head over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to enter your papercrafting project!
Thanks for stopping by!!
