Watch the creation of this rainbow background kindness card from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
This card is a single layer adhered to a white side fold card base but the colors and greeting pack a big punch. The new Geometric Background Stencil and rainbow-colored Distress Inks provide the perfect background for the You Are Loved sentiment.
I started the card with a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and the Geometric Background Stencil. I used post it tape to mask off sections of the stencil and inked each "strip" with Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I removed the stencil, spritzed the background with water from a Distress Sprayer, blotted the background dry and stamped a greeting from the You Are Loved Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Ink.
I love that you can mix and match the sentiment(s) to say exactly what you want to say. I love the size of the greeting(s) and how it's the star of the show. I will be making many, many of these cards to have on hand. Love this stamp set so much.
Hearts from the You Are Loved were stamped with Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I switched to Distress Oxides here because they stamp solid images so much better than the regular Distress Inks. You definitely wouldn't need to use both the regular and oxides on this card. You could ink the background with Oxide Inks to minimize the supplies needed. ;)
I finished some of the hearts with a layer of Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard and added a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry, Ripened Pumpkin, Dandelion Yellow, Apple Green, Midnight Blue, and Crushed Grape to complete my design.
