Hi, crafty friends! It's May. It's been a while since I created my own background using small stamps, and I had so much fun making this floral background card.
I made a video tutorial to show you how to create my card from start to finish. You can watch it above or in HD on YouTube. This video includes:
- How to stamp your images in balance when you create a stamped background
- How to hide your coloring imperfection
- How to add details on your stamped/colored background
- How to choose a right sentiment that works well for your card design
- Behind-the-scenes of my craft desk – I hope you relate to my messy desk!
Then I colored my images with Copic Sketch Markers. I didn't add any shading on the images, but simple coloring to enhance the simplicity of my floral images.
Next, I colored my background with Copic Marker E70 Ash Rose to create a vintage look of my floral pattern background.
After my background was done, I die cut the floral frame twice using the Floral Frame with a Swan Die Set out of my background panel and white fun form.
Then I mounted my panel on the A2 size white top folding card base using a glue tape. After attaching two die cut frame using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze, I inlaid my frame on the opening of my background panel.
I stamped the sentiment from the Word Series: Dream Stamp Set with Embossing Ink on a piece of Lagoon Cardstock and heat embossed it using White Detail Embossing Powder.
Then I cut out my sentiment into a thin banner and mounted it on the card front using 3M foam tape.
To finish off my card, I added some tiny dots on the center of my flowers using Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops Black and around them with a black pen.
That's all for today! Hope my card inspired you to give your own custom background a try. Happy crafting!
