Welcome to another installment of Cathy Makes a Card! Today’s card involves a stencil, blending of Distress Inks and possibly an error in assembling the final card. What can I say, ladies? I’m no expert!
That said, I had a blast making this card and it was just messy enough to be interesting and yet still remain simple and elegant.
Blending is not a skill I would say is in my wheelhouse at present. However, using a stencil really helped me to get the hang of it.
I managed to keep this video a bit shorter for your time management concerns. Enjoy! All supplies are listed below the clip!
The ‘hello’ sentiment will eventually be turned into a word die that I’ll be adding to my collection at Simon Says Stamp. I created this one on my card using my Silhouette and a font called Brave Script. I’m working on a word die set using that font in a handful of words. In the meantime, check out some of these word die sentiments you could use! One of the things that I never knew about was stacking die cuts to create dimension. It’s such an easy technique to try!
