Whether it is someone’s graduation or you just want to congratulate an accomplishment, greeting cards are always a fun way to express our excitement. Today I am sharing a card that I created using a woodblock stamp called Yay! along with Neon Inks.
I began by creating the focal point. I stamped the sentiment with Intense Black Ink over Snow Layering paper, and I colored the letters with markers. Additionally, I stamped a complementary sentiment from a set called Many Everyday Messages with Black ink as well. I die cut the images into a circle, and then I put Glossy Accents over the letters to make them shiny and puffy :)
Bright Neon Inks were just perfect for this card, so using some DIY circle foam stamps I created a confetti type of background. After that , I stamped a background called Alphabet Soup bold prints with Intense Black Ink. To create a a little bit of more interest to the background I clear embossed small circles randomly over the background. You can see them in one of the further pictures.
I wanted to make this card more fun, so instead of just using foam tape to create dimension, I used a Wobble spring behind the sentiment, which makes the card playful :)
Here you can see how the wobble spring works…
Cards like this one make me smile. I hope you feel inspired today to create using bright colors and fun elements to make others smile.
Thanks for joining me today,
