We all love a handmade cards with lots of special touches. This post offers you a few ideas and inspiration on creating Folk Art-themed cards effortlessly!
Let's start with the easiest one!
For the background, all you need to do is adhere the Gold Splatter Navy Wide Washi Tape to the card front (measures 4"x 51/4") and trim off the excess.
The "THANKS" sentiment was white-embossed ( Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder) the sentiment on Vellum. I then added a piece of Navy Gold Thin Washi Tape at the bottom as accents.
The 2nd card also uses only the stamp set and vellum. This is a great way to showcase a delicate image.
The trickiest part is white-embossing ( Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder) the entire image. You can use the anti-static powder and MISTI to get a perfect embossed image.
The next step is the fun part. Simply use the Artist Markers and start coloring on the BACKSIDE of the embossed image.
I chose the darkest colors/shades as the image will show through the vellum the best. You only need to color within the white lines on the backside and it is stress-free!
First, I decided where the middle is and positioned the stamp accordingly. I used contrasting colors (yellow and purple).
Once I finished stamping the image, I positioned the Folk Art Motif 3D Embossing Folder at the top and ran it through my die-cut machine. I did exactly the same with the bottom part.
The dry-embossed surface from the Folk Art Motif 3D Embossing Folder gives the entire card extra dimensions and interest.
After stamping the sentiment and vines, I embellished the card with a few added droplets of gold glitter.
I hope my post inspired you to create these intricate-looking projects without much effort and time. Please stop by over Altenew Card Blog and leave me your feedback. Thank you for stopping by!
