Smooches card, pictured on the left

The Smooches card is made using a Card Sketch from Cardz TV and I recorded it for youtube.

I used Neenah Index Cardstock (get it by the ream at Sam's Club really cheap!) From a planner purchased at walmart on clearance I used Patterned Planner Paper and a 6X6 paper pad of unknown origin. 

I have provided my Amazon Affiliate Link next to the products I used that are on Amazon for purchase if you are looking to buy or just want to see a closeup of the product.  I encourage you to hunt your thrift stores and yard/estate sales for thrifty craft purchases!  I also encourage you to Use What you already have!  You likely can change the card up with your own supplies without making new purchases, Just try it!  :)

Follow Your Dreams

How it was made

This is a simple A2 size card utilizing heat embossing and ink blending. 

An A2 size card is simply a card that measures 4.25" wide by 5.50" tall when folded.

Many of the best cardmakers use "mat and layer" to achieve a refined professional look in their cards.

Mat and layering is achieved by starting with your base card, a layer on the front that is at least 1/8" smaller than the base. Then the front layer that is again at least 1/8" smaller than the layer.

In my Follow your dreams card the base is an A2 size card base of a sunny orange color, the first layer is black cardstock and the front is Ink Blended. The bit with the words is called a Banner, which is made with black cardstock.

I have used Tim Holtz distress oxide inks to create the blended colors and spritzed it with water to create the patchy effect. Using Versamark clear ink I have stamped with Simon Says Stamp Dandelions Stamp covered with white embossing power and heat set. The same clear versamark and powder used for the Words.

The card has a simple yet elegant look and only takes a short bit of time to create.

Learning basics of cardmaking such as matting and layering will give your cards that extra something to make them more appealing, refined and professional.
