Hi everyone, Yvonne here. Today I would like to share a soft and romantic birthday card. I love soft romantic colors and for this card, I used pigment powder for coloring.
To add extra-dimensional effect I used some of my favorite products 3D Foam Squares White Mix and the new 3D Foam Squares Micro White for detailed adhering. Oh… and the great thing…this card is also suitable for beginning cardmakers! Wanna join me in creating the card?
Textured Soft and Romantic Birthday Card Panel
Start by trimming a piece of soft grey cardstock to a rectangular size. Next, take a flower-patterned stencil and put it onto the card panel. Tip: hold the stencil in place by using some washi tape. Then use a spatula to spread some texture paste over the card. Now gently lift the stencil to prevent texture paste stains. While the texture paste is still wet, sprinkle just a little pigment powder over. This way the pigment color will add a subtle color effect (the color pigment mixes with the wet texture paste). Now let dry thoroughly or use a heat tool to dry.
This card is only two layers so simply adhere the textured grey card panel onto a white card base. Use the EZ Runner for adhering the panel onto the card base.
Embellishing the Card
First, sprinkle some pigment powder onto white cardstock and then use a mister to spray some water over the cardstock. This will make the pigment powder fluid and spread over the cardstock.
Now let dry thoroughly. Then die-cut the word Happy from the colored cardstock. Next adhere a piece of bandage onto the card using the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
Finally, adhere a birthday sentiment onto the textured birthday card using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
And voilá… your card is ready!
