Hi everyone, Leigh Ann here for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. Today I will be showing you how to make a quick easy card that looks great!
My first step was to cut my card base, a black shimmer background layer, and a slightly smaller piece of smooth white card stock to use as my inked background.
Then I painted the Meadow Flowers piece by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts with a matte black acrylic paint, being careful to coat the edges as well.
While that was drying I went to work on my background. I used Distress Oxides in Abandoned Coral, Broken China, and Seedless Preserves. I blended the 3 colors into each other in horizontal stripes without worrying about perfection. I then sprayed the background with water and blotted with a towel to get the oxidized look. I dried it with a heat gun to save time.
Next, I stamped my sentiment onto white cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. I cut it to a small rectangle not much larger than the sentiment.
Then is was time to assemble the card. I used a tape runner to attach the paper layers and then used Gina K Connect Glue to attach the chipboard piece. I popped the sentiment up with foam tape to give the card more dimension.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial for a great looking easy card that you can make when you need a card quickly. I used the Meadow Flowers chipboard piece, but the possibilities are endless. You can swap out the ink colors, the chipboard piece, and the sentiment to make a card perfect for any occasion.
