Hello friends! Today I am happy to share a few fun cards using the May kit and extras. I even took the chance to get a bit inky, which I miss and LOVE! Here is a look at the cards!
For card #1 I started with a yellow card base and built the paper stack from there. I was inspired by the colored ray card from the May kit to build the sentiment and embellishments from the corner. This is a great tip! Let the cards in the kit inspire the design of your cards or layouts!
I stamped the sentiment “celebrate THIS” from the Currently Icon Stamp on the bottom ray of the journal card. Next, to add a bit more color to the card I framed the top half of the card with a blue journal card. To build balance I added a die cut star to the lower left corner and built a small embellishment cluster of thread and acrylic star. I still needed to add bit more color to the card so I trimmed another journal card to line the card base. It was just what that card needed! Celebration card complete!
First let me just say….I love this card and it was so fun to make. I was so happy to get inky with the Tim Holtz distress ink. As soon as I saw the To the Moon and Back wood veneer set I knew exactly what I wanted to create.
I created the star light sky by using three dark blue inks to create an ombre pattern across the card base. I wanted to create a bit of interaction between the moon and the edge of the card. I glued the moon down overlapping the edges and trimmed it to create the interaction. To create a little more interest and contrast I painted the moon with white glitter and the stars with yellow glitter. The finishing touches on the card were created by white ink splatters on the card base to mimic distant stars in the sky. So fun!
