Simple Sticker Card

This card was made with Lawn Fawn Stripey Backdrop, My Favorite Things Adorable Elephants, Pretty Pink Posh droplets in 4 and 6mm, Pebbles Butterfly sticker and Bazzill cardstock.

The backdrop die cut was adhered to a card base using foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed before being die cut with a flag die.  The butterfly sticker was added to the sentiment strip and then arranged on the card front.  The final step in this quick and simple card was to adhere the droplets with Glossy Accents.

OMG Watercolour Card

This card was created using My Favorite Things Inside/Outside Stitched Circle Stax and High Rise Lowercase Alphabet, Strathmore Hot Pressed Watercolor card, Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Black Soot, Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamps and Bazzill cardstock.

The first step was to watercolour the circles with multiple layers of the inks mentioned above.  Each letter was then die cut 3 times to create some dimension.  Two strips of black cardstock were also cut.  When the circles were dry Black Soot distress ink was flicked across each one.  The elements were then adhered flat to a top folding card base and lastly, the sentiment was stamped into the notch cut from the centre circle.
