Hello friends! This is Sandhya, and I am back with two birthday cards for today’s inspiration post. I used the You Are Timeless Sentiment Kit to make two similar, yet very different cards.
For this first card, I created a background using Lindy’s Magicals. Then, I stamped the focal image in the center and added more background stamping using the Love Envelope stamp set. I distressed the edges of the panel using scissors and attached a bow.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock, ripped the edges to match the distressed look, and added it to the panel. I also added little pieces of lace under the sentiment as well as the bow and finished off with some iridescent sequins.
For the second card, I went with a soft and muted look. This was kind of inspired by the background I created for my OLIVE you card from last week.
I started by heat embossing the focal image using white embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I went on to add some color using Lindy’s Magicals.
I tried to add some texture to my card using Crackle paste, but it didn’t crackle when it dried. This may be because I tried to rush the drying process using a heat gun. Anyways. I still like the texture of the white paste and added some white splatters using Picket Fence Distress Spray.
Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and added it to the panel using foam tape. I also added some sequins to finish off my card.
This brings us to the end of today’s post. I hope you are inspired to try these techniques with the same stamp to achieve two different looks. Thank you so much for stopping by!
