Congrats SVG Greeting Card
Today I'm going to show you how to assemble the Congrats SVG Greeting Card. I made it extra special by making my own paper first.
Stampin' Up Soft Swirls Stamp (retired)
Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Ink
Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide Ink
Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink
Spray Bottle with Water
To make my paper I used watercolor paper and blended distress oxide inks across it. Then I spritzed it with water to get the oxidized look. And as if this wasn't pretty enough I pulled out a swirly heart stamp by Stampin' Up and used versamark ink to stamp that over the paper. Next, I pulled out my trusty silver embossing powder to pour over the stamped image and heat set that with my heat gun. Ones this was all completed I sent the paper though my cameo cutting machine on coverstock settings with the overcut on. At first, I didn't choose the correct settings so its a good thing I checked it out before I unloaded my mat so I could cut it again.
For a little more spice, I turned this card into a non-traditional shaker card. I was planning to use sequins but it ended up being too busy with the embossed stamp. So I ended up making a laminated sheet with gold heat embossing powder in it. It looks super beautiful in real life. For the sentiment, I again heat embossed in silver another Stampin' Up stamp. I made another watercolor piece to be matted on the inside for extra flare.
All in all, this was a quick and easy card to make. Perfect for any occasion that requires celebrating!
Hope you enjoyed this one. It has been a while since I've made a card so I really had a lot of fun creating this one.
Until next time....
