All Occasion Card, Card, Close to My Heart, Mother's Day, Sale, Stamp of the Month (SOTM), Thin Cuts

Celebrate You Card

For this week’s Tuesday Tutorial, I assembled a bright, spring Tulip that you could create using our Cricut Flower Market Collection.  In the photo with the Tulip, was this fun, easy-to-make card that I produced using our exclusive Color Your Life stamp of the month.  You can easily replicate this card for any occasion, with the Re-Inkers of your choice, using the cutting guide and directions below as a guide.  I have also listed the supplies used at the very bottom of this post. CelebrateYouCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 4¼” x 5½” White Card Base, 4″ x 5¼” Gold Foil Paper, 3¾” x 5″ White Daisy Cardstock, Gold Foil Paper (“You”)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Fill your Spray Pen ¾-full with Isopropyl Alcohol or Water and add 5-7 drops of Re-Inker. (I chose to fill one using Sorbet and one using Tangerine.)
2. Place your White Daisy cardstock onto the All Purpose Mat (or a well prepared area – it will get messy) and carefully spray the cardstock using the mix in the Spray Pens.  The closer your are, the denser the coverage.
3. Allow the inks to dry completely.
4. Using VersaMark Ink, stamp the “Celebrate and be” sentiment, sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat using a craft gun.
5. Adhere the White Daisy cardstock onto the center of the 4″ x 5¼” Gold Foil paper, then onto the center of the card base.
6. Using a Cuttlebug, or embossing machine of choice, cut out “You” from Gold Foil Paper using the “Thankful for You” Thin Cuts.  Adhere to the card.
7. Add Gold Glitter Gems and a sentiment inside the card if you like.

When playing with your Spray Pens, it’s always good to have some scraps of White cardstock nearby.  After spraying the petals on my Tulip, I had some left-over mix in my Spray Pens, so instead of wasting it,  I used it to create the background for this card.  You never know what you might possibly end up with. 

Remember, the Color Your Life stamp set is only available through April 30th. You can order it on my website for $17.95 or for only $5.00 with a qualifying purchase.  I have created a few projects this month using this stamp set, and, I must say, it is one that I am beginning to warm up to. I can’t wait to see what you create with the April stamp of the month!
