Hello friends! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here on the blog today sharing a card that filled with love, joy and alcohol! Ink, that is! ; ) I was really pleased with how this card came out, since I had ended up pulling a random piece of alcohol ink background from my scrap bin. It is so cheerful and uplifting!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. On a sheet of 5 1/4″ x 4″ Yupo paper, I created an alcohol ink background in peaches and pinks. Honestly, I keep about 50 alcohol ink background pieces on reserve in a bin to pull from and it makes creating cards kind of quick and easy! This background was one of those “pre-made” pieces.
For the center focal piece I used the Kinsley Heart Layering Plates. Layer C (bottom layer) was cut from peachy/orange cardstock. Layer B (middle layer) was cut from gold glitter cardstock and Layer A (top layer) was cut from pink cardstock. I used the 6″ x 6″ paper packs in both Sunny Orange and Berry Reds for the cardstock. The glitter paper came from the 6″ x 6″ Festive Glitter paper pack. I adhered the three layers of the heart together with a fine-tip liquid glue.
I used the Find Joy and Outline die to create the sentiment. The shadow or outline of the word “find joy “was die cut from white cardstock. The thinner inside was cut from pink cardstock from the same Berry Red 6″ x 6″ paper pack. I adhered the two layers together with a fine tip liquid glue. Lastly I adhered both the heart and sentiment to the card with 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Alcohol inks are a great way to add interest and uniqueness to your cards! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
