Summer to me means picnics with buffalo checkered tablecloths and picnic blankets in the park. These classic one-color solid plaid patterns were my inspiration for this “Thank You” card. I created this fun and cheerful design using Brilliance Galaxy Gold for a summer glow.
Time: 1 hour + dry time
Stamp clouds and other images on smooth white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Nocturne and emboss the images using Imagine’s embossing powder in Clear.
Color your images using a small paintbrush and All-Purpose Inks. Paint the balloon using Vegas Gold All-Purpose Ink to match the background color.
Trim a smooth cardstock panel and mask off lines using painters tape. Ink the exposed areas using Brilliance Galaxy Gold.
Remove the tape and add tape in the opposite direction and ink again.
Carefully remove the tape to reveal your golden inked Buffalo check design.
Water down pink or blue ink to splatter onto the background. Use VersaFine Clair Golden Meadow ink and a Jumbo Dauber to stencil a sun pattern in the top corner.
Adhere the colored elements. Add a layer of GlazOn and lightly sprinkle with clear glitter.
Add a stamped sentiment and some diamanté. Adhere the panel to the front of a folded card base.
