Chevron Cards with a Trick

By | Cards, Thank You Cards | No Comments

Welcome to another Thank You Card Thursday! I’ve got a trick for you today… I started by making this birthday card with the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Patterned Occasions. I wanted to make a thank you card using the same layout, but as you can see from the photo below, I couldn’t get the elephant and the greeting all in the circle.  That’s where the trick comes in.  I stamped the greeting on a little strip of white card stock and trimmed the ends to make it a banner.

It’s day 9 of the Clean & Simple Card Making 2 class and I was immediately drawn to the cards that had a watercolor/glitter look. So pretty! Here’s my take on it… This card was so fun to make!  I started by scribbling a watercolor crayon at the top of a piece of watercolor paper, making it as dark as I possibly could.  Then I used an AquaPainter to create the watercolor effect and pull the color down the piece of paper.  Pulled out my new heat tool for the first time and used the lower heat setting to dry…
