Hi, everyone! Like to get inky when you make cards? Teri here with a colorful birthday tag card that features a fun ink resist technique you are going to love!
The resist technique is easy to pull with any dye ink and E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser!
Decorate the Birthday Tags
Start by randomly applying some lines of adhesive with the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser to three tags.
Using the blending tool, apply ink onto the three tags until you get your desired look.
Use your fingers to rub the dots off of the tags. If you are using multiple ink colors, be sure to clean your finger between colors!
Add a few E-Z Runner® Stars to each tag. Then apply the flock on top of the exposed adhesive for a textured embellishment.
Add Details to the Card
Adhere a panel of patterned paper onto a card base. Tie strings onto your tags and add them to your card with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
Stamp a sentiment onto a strip of cardstock and pop it up to one of your tags with 3D Foam Strips.
Finish It Off
Embellish the card a little more by adding a few pompoms to it. Designer’s Tip: I recommend putting an adhesive dot from the Adhesive Dots Micro first on your card. Then adding the pompom to it, rather than doing it the opposite way.
While I used a rainbow color scheme to do the ink resist on this card, you don’t have to! This technique is a fun one to try with all kinds of color combos. You can even use just one or two different colors!
I hope this Happy Birthday Tag Card tutorial has stirred up your creative juices and inspired you to give it a try! Let me know if you do by leaving a comment for me.
