Hello friends! I’m still sharing some projects that I had been working on from the previous month and hadn’t posted until now. I’m also having fun creating “behind the scenes”, which is nice to just be able to “relax” and not rush on creating projects just for posting! I’m keeping that in mind when I tell myself that I’m “behind”!😁
I think just having some fun is the key!
So earlier, I was “challenged” to use some of the pre-printed “Card Panels“. These are card panels that are also foilable prints or you can color them, ink blend over them, etc. So I decided to have some fun and play with a past card kit from my stash:
The Berry Thankful Card Panels were used for both of my cards. I used some colored pencils and a water brush to color in both panels. But because they’re not a water friendly type of cardstock, you need to be aware of possibly too much moisture in the paper. So I kept a very light hand with it and just did some basic coloring on them. Then after I got them colored up, I used my laminator and foiled over them with some Silver Deco Foil sheets. For the sentiments on the cards, I took out the Berry Thankful stamp set also included in the same card kit, and heat embossed them over the grey cardstock included in the kit with some Foil Reactive EP and ran it through the laminator again with the same color foil I used on the card panels.
After running through the laminator, I used some dies to cut them out with and then I ran some glue along the edges and dipped them in some chunky flaky glitter that was also included with the card kit and popped them up over the card panels (with foam tape) that were placed onto some cardstock in the kit and layered over an A2 sized folded card base. Before I attached the card panels, I wrapped some twine around them and tied with a bow.
Lastly I added a thin strip of decorative paper and also added some sequins from the kit. I filled them with silver glitter in the centers.
Normally, I would’ve posted a photo of each design, but really wasn’t sure that I would be posting about these on my blog. So I hope you enjoy the “berry” shinny cards!!😂
Thanks so much for dropping by today and I wish you a very fun and happy upcoming Memorial Day weekend!! (Wow! Where did the month of May go?!!)
