It seems that I need to make fast and simple cards lately. Here are two that I made an hour just before I took my son to a birthday party.
As you see, they were quite simple to make. I cut a 3.75 x 5″ panel for both cards. I took 2 bottles of blue ink sprays (Ranger’s Dylusions – London Blue and Heidi Swapp’s Color Shine Tropicana Teal) and colored the panel. I first used the London Blue and sprayed very close to the panel creating a random large blotch. I then used the Tropicana Teal to lightly spray all over the card. I let the panels dry.
I then die cut and glued the word “celebrate” from the set Celebrations (51-028) several times (3x/card) to create dimension. I took an idea that I saw in Cristina Kowalcyzk’s blog a few months back. I used matching blue card stock as the bottom 2 layers of my die cut and then used black cardstock as the top layer. I then heavily brushed Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the die cut. I wanted to add Glossy Accents, but I had no time for it to dry.
Once the panels were dry, I added them to the card base. I then added my die cut to the top center. Done!
