Hello crafty friends,
I am Sabiha Khan with another inspirational post for you all.
Hope you all are having a great time while staying home with your loved ones. So without wasting your time….let’s start with making these awesome cards.
Have a look at my cards first.
Now lets start making these cards……..
Lets begin with the first card which gives the message for “Staying safe at Home”. As we all are staying at home, its time to learn new things. So lets get crafty…..
Step by step
For making this card, I have used the newly released lovely paper collection “Boho Dreams” from Little Birdie. These paper come in 12″by 12″ size with 12 sheets including 1 pre-punched sheet of doilies, 1 element sheet and 1 sheet of journaling cards. These paper are acid free and 250gsm thick.
I took three different pattern papers from the paper pack with sizes 6″ by 6″, 5″ by 5″ and a 4″ by 4″.
Took the stencil “Home sweet home” 4 by 4″ and stenciled the image using 2 in 1 texture paste from the store, on the 4″ by 4″ piece. Let it dry for some time and distressed the edges with scissors and use some pigment inks to colour the edges.
Next I did some fussy cutting from the printed element sheet which has some super awesome images on it.
Took out some coordinating flowers “Nora Boho Vibes”to match the card….as seen in the pic.
Next, adhered the layers of pattern paper using two dimensional tape to give the card some dimension. Next, adhered the flowers and the fussy cut images using tacky glue and silicon glue. Also made a hand written sentiment “Stay home stay safe” on a black strip of card using white gel pen to coordinate my card design.
Hope you liked my card and would give it a try……
My second card is…..
Again I have used the same “Boho Dreams” paper pack for this card.
Here I took a 6″ by 6″ pattern paper and another 4.25″ by 4.25″ pattern paper. Took one 4″ by 4″ watercolour paper to do the stenciling.
Next, stenciled the image using “Paisley Mandala” stencil on the 4″ by 4″ piece using 2 in 1 texture paste and let it to dry. Once it dried, I applied some random pigment inks and sprayed water over it. The inks automatically blended and gave a awesome colourful look. Next, I took some silver metallic wax and applied it on the textured image using my fingers. See the results in the pictures below.
When the center image was ready, I took a “Follow your dreams” pretty circular scalloped die-cut from the pre-punched doily sheet from the paper pack. Also took some coordinating flowers “Nancy boho Vibes , ‘Tulip bouquet Boho Dreams’ and some colourful twine to embellish my card. I also used the beautiful doily die to embellish my card. I die cut the doily and applied some pigment inks to give a little colour.
Arrange everything on the card before adhering everything with tacky glue , double sided tape and silicon glue from the store.
Hope you like both the cards……
