Hi, Connie here with a fun “artsy” card with a great message for these crazy times. Make each day your Masterpiece can apply to anything you do.
Supplies for Your Masterpiece Card
For the supplies needed, I collect cardstock, stamps, and ink. I grabbed the following adhesives to use in making this card: 3D Foam Pennants, 3D Foam Strips, Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic Colors, 3D Foam Squares White Small, Crafty Foam Tape 108ft., and E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
Card Step Outs
- Adhere a light blue cardstock panel to the black card base using E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Strips.
- Stamp a woodgrain background with black ink to a piece of cream cardstock panel. Lift and adhere to the layered card base with Crafty Foam Tape 108ft.
- Stamp brush and paint tube images on cream cardstock and trim out. Add three different blue ink tones to the ends of the brushes and paint tube. Place a couple of 3D Foam Squares White Small on the ends. Set aside.
- Apply 3D Foam Pennants to patterned paper and trim out. Adhere to the upper right corner of the card front.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside
Are you familiar with Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside concept? Instead of hiding the adhesives behind layers of material, we use them as accents or embellishments on our projects.
For my card, I will use 3D Foam Strips with the silver foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic Colors. Simply remove the top liner of a 3D Foam Strip, place the silver foil (color side UP) over the exposed adhesive and rub gently with a fingertip. Then peel off and Done! No need for a special tool. If you missed a spot, just reapply.
Finish Off Your Masterpiece Card
Adhere the foiled strip to the card front below the foam pennants. This is a visual bar for the brushes and paint tube will be adhered to.
Stamp the sentiment with black ink and cream cardstock. Trim and ink with the same three blue ink tones. Let dry and place on to the card front with E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Wrap Twine towards the bottom of the card panel. Done!
