For Father’s day I a pulling out some of my favourite products from Imagine and creating gorgeous textures and dimension. Shades of blue gives card a fun but masculine feel and the shimmer adds just that bit of elegance – perfect for even the hardiest of men.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Time: 45minutes including drying time
Use a variety of Memento Luxe inks in shades of blue and blend a background.
Tape your stencil to your smooth white cardstock to hold it in place.
Blend the darkest shade of blue Nautical Blue and then Teal Zeal.
Blend some Bahama Blue – remember to overlap onto the previous colour to get a nice blended effect.
TIP: For seamless blending I vary the pressure I apply. When blending over the previous colour I have a very light hand ensuring I only blend the colour instead of replacing it.
Lastly, I blend some Grey Flannel right at the bottom of my card.
While my stencil is still in place I apply a thin layer of Creative Medium over the entire panel.
You can also get creative and tape off some shaped areas like I did here.
While the Creative Medium is still wet, lightly sprinkle with clear frosted glitter before removing the stencil carefully. Leave the paste to dry – as the medium dries it keeps the glitter in place.
Punch a large vellum circle. Use Memento Markers to add a stamped element onto smooth white cardstock and punch into a circle.
Stamp a sentiment using VersaFine Clair and trim to size. Assemble your elements to the stencilled background once dry and adhere the panel to a folded card. Finish off with diamante and enamel dots.
The embossing powder adds some glamour and shine to this simple yet fun card. Just like the couple – fun colours combined together with a touch of glam and pizazz.
Mboss embossing powder really takes any project t the next level. Available in a huge variety of colours they truly are amazing.
So many fun products used for a simple but striking card.
