Thank you - abstract circles C6 blue themed card - Day 44 of my 365 day challenge

Thank you - abstract circles C6 blue themed card - 
Day 44 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card - is a simple card that I have made to give to someone who has sponsored my diet (for MacMillan Nurses) - it was easy to make but I am really pleased with how it turned out...


To make this card you need to do the following:-

  • I masked off the back of the card so that I could stamp/emboss directly on to the front of a C6 card.
  • I then used the largest of Altenew's Half Tone circle stamps and stamped it randomly using Versamagic ink and then added some fine White embossing powder and heat set them using a heat gun.
  • Once they had cooled down, I used the lovely blue Altenew ink pad (still not sure of its' name) and coloured the front of the card, trying to get a mottled effect with darker parts in places.
  • I let that dry for a bit and then used a cloth to get rid of the excess ink which allowed the white embossed parts to stand out more.
  • To make the sentiment, I cut out the Thank You part using some red card and the layer in Silver - this is part of a die set from Paper Boutique by Creative Crafting World. 
  • To attach the Thank You bit, I used some sticky dots as I didn't want any glue to show through and placed it on the layer and then added it to the front of the card using some foam pads to give it some height.
And there you are a card that is really fun to make!
