Hi, crafty friends. I have a super simple card to share with you today. It’s almost one layer, it’s that simple. No bulk, no dimension, and this came together so quickly.
There’s something about the Sloth-some Sloths digi stamp set from Streamside Studios that really appealed to me, and this is my third card using the set. First sloth, though.
I printed my image on a quarter of an A4 sheet of X-Press It blending card. A4 is narrower and taller than lettersize, so my quarter panel doesn’t quite cover an A2 card front. By letting a strip of the card base showing as a result, it adds a design element to the card.
Once my coloring was complete, I ink blended Berry Sorbet and Melon Berry inks into one of the openings in the Say Anything stencil from My Favorite Things, before stamping a sentiment from the Anything-but-Basic Birthday Wishes stamp set (also from MFT) using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.
I adhered the panel directly to the card base (Melon Berry cardstock from Papertrey Ink) and added a few confetti stars from the Rosy Glow mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.
The stars are matte gold, but they still shine in the light. And because they’re flat, and everything else on this card is also flat, this card is very mail friendly, which is a rarity for me.
Quick, simple color palette.
