3 Tools, 3 Ways

When I needed to make a birthday card for my daughter this cute image was a great starting point for inspiration. I really enjoyed the various ways to add depth, dimension and texture to my projects. Of course tools like the Imagine Crafts Palette Knives, Sponge Dauber and Doodlestix made it much easier for me! 😄


Directions:

1. Cut/score card base to a finished size of 4¼˝ x 5½˝ from Candy Heart cardstock.

2. Cut a white mat layer.

3. Use sponge dauber and instead of a usual circular sponging motion, just swipe the inks across. This gives a nice subtle interest to the background.

4. Stamp the image using Memento Tuxedo Black as I am going to color using Copic markers.

5. Once the image is colored, I applied tiny dots using Wedding Dress inker and the pointed Doodlestix.

6. Then, I applied some Shimmer Spritz Sparkle to the cake, candles and hair bow.

7. Die-cut a heart shape to your liking, apply some gold Creative Medium using a palette knife. You will want to apply your Creative Medium in a tapping motion to give it a nice texture.

8. Finally, I cut 2 strips of white cardstock, dry emboss it using an embossing folder and assembled my card as per the main photo.
