Card Making Tutorial

I begun my stamping and colouring Anya on the kraft card. She was coloured using alcohol markers. She was cut using the torn nesting die.

She was layer using cream card and patterned papers. These were mounted together

I used the smaller stamps in the pack with the verasmark ink and heat embossed them with the pink embossing powder. 

The background was trimmed using the deckle and blended in speckled egg

The sentiment die was cut using the same papers i used on the nesting die 

This was adhered onto an A5 Kraft Card base. The card was finished with ribbon and nuvo drops

Thank you for reading 

Happy Crafting
