I first saw a similar card on interest a while ago. I recently bought a set of stamps and coordinating die cuts so now I had at the right pieces to create a similar card. It is a pop up card that folds flat for mailing. I colored the images with Copic markers and either die cut or fussy cut the stamped images. The pop up folds flat for mailing. I even made two more. I love the way the card finally came out.
Here is a fun way to use paint as the medium to create your card. Find an old book page, I used an old dictionary page and took out my assortment of tubes of acrylic paints. My paint brush today was cotton swabs. Cheap and easy to find. Use a found object that you can use to use for the accent circle. I used the cover from a plastic tube that I had from washi tape. Squeeze out a dollop of paint from each of the colors, I used about 6 different colors. Use a cotton swab for each color paint, and create a small circle on the printed page. I was symmetrical my first attempt and random the next time. I continued to add colors around the middle and then around the next color. I stopped when I had the look I wanted. When the circles were dry, I painted the cover of the plastic tube with black paint and stamped each painted circle, moving and overlapping each time I stamped. I added gold and black specks for accents. When the page was dry I cut the page to fit on a card. I experimented using hearts as well. Give it a try. I was inspired by a you tube clip from ‘cat hands’. Nice to use a different medium.
I enjoy making Valentine themed cards and the I one I created have been mailed and have arrived to their destinations! I used a Pure Innocence stamp from My Favorite Things. I have quite a collection of these cute stamps. I colored the image with Copic markers and added a cute out dress from printed paper. The coordinating circles and printed banners add to the layout. The glitter paper heart and small circle greeting complete the layout. I kept the inside sentiment simple. Check your mailbox, you might get a special card!
