Total we have a card tutorial using Wendy Vecchi products. If you haven’t seen her new archival ink colors, check them out below…
This picture doesn’t do them justice, but it was the best I could do. You can purchase them here.
First cut a piece of cream cardstock 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score the long side at 5 1/2″.
Fold the card and with the fold at the top use Wendy’s Prickly Pear Archival ink and her Handwritten Background stamp to stamp the card front.
Cut a piece of dark green cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″ and tear off one corner.
Adhere to the bottom of the card front centering to leave a cream border. Stamp the sentiment from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Mix & Match Art SCS150 stamp set by Stampers Anonymous in the upper right corner of the card front with Peat Moss Archival ink.
Cut or punch a 3 3/4″ diameter circle from Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper and with the Prickly Pear and Peat Moss Archival inks and rubbing alcohol create a background on the circle by rubbing both colors of ink onto your non stick craft mat and add the alcohol. Tap your circle into the inks and alcohol and dry with a heat tool. For a visual tutorial on how to make the background watch the You Tube by Wendy Vecchi here.
Ink the edge of the circle with the Peat Moss ink and a blending tool.
Stamp the leaves from the Mix & Match Art stamp set onto the circle with the Peat Moss ink.
Stamp the flower from the same stamp set onto a scrap of cardstock. I used a scrap of the cream and stamped the flower twice since I wasn’t sure where I was going with the card. Since the new ink blending tool hasn’t arrived yet, I put the new Poppy Archival ink on my craft mat and added a little alcohol. Then used and empty Tim Holtz Detail Water Brush to apply the color to the flower on the right. I had used a blending tool to color the leaves on the flower on the left, not worrying about the lines since I planned to cut the flower out. I decided to use the flower on the right so after coloring I used the Craft Nib Holder and nib and the new Acorn Archival ink to define the center of the flower. I used my Tim Holtz Mini Snips to fussy cut the flower.
Attach the flower to the circle and then adhere the circle to the card front with 1/16″ 3D Dots.
I hope that you enjoyed today’s card tutorial. Thank you for joining us!
