CASUAL

Fühl dich geknuddelt Card (4-1/4″ x 5 1/2″) (10.5 x 14.9 cm)
For our casual project, we used just a few products to create a fun, simple card that anyone can make. Stamp and die-cut the sheep, add a little color with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, create a dimensional background with 1″ x 3″ (2.5 x 7.6 cm) strips of Basic Gray Cardstock, then dapple the “sky” with Cute Stars Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Baa-adorable.

AVID

Tu es supeeerbe Card (4-1/4″ x 5 1/2″) (10.5 x 14.9 cm)
We fancied up the Avid card by embossing the Basic Gray Cardstock Strips with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Our special trick? Add a little White Craft ink to the folder to leave cloudy impressions on the embossed paper.

ARTFULLY AVID

You’re Amazing Card (4-1/4″ x 5 1/2″) (10.5 x 14.9 cm)
For our final card we used Blending Brushes to add Basic Gray and Tuxedo Black Memento ink to a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock. Once the inks were blended, we spritzed the cardstock with water, then splattered it with White Craft ink before cutting the paper into 1″ x 3″ (2.5 x 7.6 cm) strips. This time we used the inked embossing folder technique on the card base, giving it a marbled look that contrasts nicely with the darker cardstock strips beneath.
