Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing another guest design team project over at Elizabeth Craft Designs. My project for this month is inspired by the lovely sunshine weather we have had the past days here in Austria. I wanted to create lovely, candy coloured cards, because of the sunshiny weather.
These are the two cards I share at ECD blog today. Both are very simple and easy to do, but still look detailed. The good thing is, they are done in no time!
Here are the steps for the first card:
Step 1: Take a piece of each (yellow, light blue, grey, pink and light green) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut one piece of the Junk Journal Extras dies in each colour.
Step 2: Now take the smaller flower dies from the Tropical Florals die set and die cut the flower with pink, yellow and grey Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Next adhere the die cut pieces onto a white card base overlappingly and arrange the flower to the upper left corner for decoration.
Step 4: Finally, take a piece of kraft carstock and heat emboss a sentiment with white embossing powder using one of the sentiment in the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set. For additional decor, add a few craft drops next to the sentiment.
Here are the steps for the second card:
Step 1: Die cut a strip of paper with the Adventure Edges die and create a cloud background to a white card base with it by applying yellow and light pink ink using the die cut border as a stencil.
Step 2: After that apply some ink droplets with the light pink tone onto the background for a fun additional detail. Use a paint brush or a water tank brush for this purpose.
Step 3: Die cut two leaves and one flower with the Tropical Flowers die set from the same Soft Finish Cardstock tones used on the first card.
Step 4: Arrange the leaves and the flower onto the right lower corner of the card and adhere on place. Then add a stamped sentiment with black stamp ink and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set.
Step 5: For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the background.
Also if you are not into pastel tones, feel free to try out this set in primary colours or in more neutral tones. Changing the cardstock colours will give you a totally different look!
Hoping I could inspire you with my card projects today and get you crafting fun candy coloured cards yourself! See you again next month with another ECD project!! Have a great Sunday!
