Anyway...here is the last card we made at Archiver's during my recent class. I didn't design this....kudos again to the Archiver's design team as this card was very cute, too!
Isn't it lovely?
The first thing we did was paint all 4 edges of the basic kraft A2 card. We took another piece of cardstock that measured about 4" by 5 1/4" and used it to make a background. We did this by taking a large stamp called the Classic Fabric Design Cling Stamp (love that Damask look which is so popular right now!)
dabbed some paint on it, laid it face up on the table, put our cardstock piece over it....ran a brayer over it and we had a fabulous printed background! I love this method!
We stamped "Kindness" on a small piece of canvas and frayed the edges a bit. We had stamped and cut out the large blue flower and then used Crackle Paint on it...we also glammed up some paper flowers by using Glimmer Glaze...added some bling, a painted piece of twine and a painted button. I really loved the result...don't you?
