I’m feeling the love from you all lately for this series of Artist Trading Card Daily posts so I thought that I would create something to celebrate that.
The background was created by heat embossing white embossing powder onto Super Smooth cardstock and then brushing over some light coloured inks, which I then spritzed lightly with water and allowed to dry.
This was then layered onto coordinating cardstock.
The sentiment panel was created using a random word stamp, (no idea who made it or where it came from), which I stamped onto white textured cardstock with black Versafine ink.
This was then punched out using a mini circle punch and layered onto cardstock that matched the layer used on the background.
I created strips of matching cardstock in order to wrap around the ATC with a metal ruler and craft knife.
The flowers were created using a mini flower punch. I cut lots of them out, glued two together to form each flower and pressed the centres into a foam sheet using an embossing tool, from my Tonic Studios flower forming set, to give them shape. I then glued an Anita’s Mini Gem into the centre with some PVA glue.
To assemble I attached the wrap strips to the background with PVA. Then added the love sentiment circle. I found some thin scrap strips of white cardstock in my re-use pile and folded them in half and glued in place with Pinflair Glue gel onto which I also placed the flowers.
And there we have it, another ATC for the collection (and a whole lot of love just for you).
I hope that you like it and that it may inspire you to have a go at these manageable mini makes.
