I have realised that since I have started to make video tutorials on youtube, I tend to only update my blog when I have a new tutorial to share. So, I have now decided that ,I do not have to always do that! I can update my blog, by sharing the cards I have made without a video tutorial too:)Why not:) But what intrigued me the most was, why did I stop to do that?Weird, weird!I was so happy when I realised that I will be sharing many more projects with you this way since I do not always make a video tutorial every week but I can whip up a card pretty easily every week.
So I am going to start off with this card here and I know that I had some basic grey patterned papers in my drawer and I have used one of them - I am talking about the strawberry patterend paper on the card, and for the life of me, I just cannot find from which paper pad this is from!!I have checked again and again from my collection and just cannot seem to know! If you are reading this and you know, please leave me a comment as this will drive me crazy.I will keep looking and If I do find out, I will leave a message in the comment section.But anyway,this is how I have made this card.
- From a 12x12 Kraft cardstock, trim down a card which when folded in half is slightly bigger than A5.
- Use your patterned paper and cut out a circle-I have used a coluzzle cutting system.
- Punch out some circles(1") and stick them around the edge of the circle so it look slike a big flower.
- Glue this down to your base card.
- Stamp down the icecream onto pink card using light brown chalk ink, then again onto white card, using dark brown chalk ink.Stamp is from the 'yummy in the tummy' stamp set by Sassafrass lass.
- Cut out the top section of the icecream (the cream part)from the pink card and layer this on top of the other icecream image which has been stamped on the whitecard(layer so that you see the cone of the icecream).
- Then punch out another circle from a pink cardstock and pop up the icecream onto this pink circle.
- Stamp the sentiment 'Loving life with you by my side' (by Technique Tuesday- Ali Edwards)with embossing ink, then pour over white embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat emboss with a heat gun.
- Finish off by drawing faux stitches around the edge of the card with a white gel pen.
And there you have it. A cute card for that special someone in your life!
See you soon,
