Hello everyone. Today I have a quick and easy way to create cards that you need in a flash. I was asked to create a sympathy card and didn’t have a lot of time last night. I pulled out this fabulous Trinity Stamps set called With Sympathy. It’s got a great floral image and wonderful supporting sentiments for a variety of situations.
For this card, I started with an oversized piece of watercolor paper. I scribbled some Tombow markers on a clear block, spritzed it with water and smooshed my paper into the block. After every time I smooshed the paper into the water, I used my heat gun to dry it. That’s how you get all of the different splotches and layers. If you leave it wet and keep smooshing, it all mixes together and you get one color.
Once the panel was dry and my laminator was heated up, I ran the panel through there to help flatten it back out. Then I used the largest Embossed Edge Rectangle Stack die to cut the panel down to A2 size. Next, I chose 2 smaller rectangles and used them to cut a dark gray frame. Then, using the frame as a guide, I stamped and heat embossed the floral image with black embossing powder. I used liquid glue to adhere my frame and placed acrylic blocks on top while I stamped my sentiment to help it all dry flat.
The dies for this set also cut the large sentiment out perfectly. I love this! I used liquid glue to adhere that down and also added a scattering of confetti sequins across the design.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
