Monday Card Candy| It's okay not to be okay

As we dive into a new monday card series (yes, I realize today's post is on a Tuesday) called Monday Card Candy, I want say not all cards will be glitzy. Rather this series will show case all card styles. You can expect to see cards that are basic or simple and elegant, to time consuming, and filled with bling.

Scroll below for a video of this card, or read along as I explain this process for creating this Monday Card Candy.

Step one. Measure 2 in from the right side of your card base, and draw a line. You are creating a guide line for your lace border stamp. Once your ink has dried, remember to erase your pencil line. 

Step two. Adhere the beautiful pattern paper to the left your lace border. 

Step Three. Create a background on the right side by using a 3rd generation stamping method. You achieve this by stamping twice on scrap paper, before then stamping on your project. It gives a subtle image.

Step four. Adhere the base cardstock piece, that will act as a border for your sentiment piece. 

Step five. Stamp your sentiment in Sapphire ink, towards the bottom, but centered. 

Step six. Using new England ivy stamp two ferns above the sentiment. Add a small berry in the center of the ferns, in raspberry ink.

Step seven. Add 3D foam squares to your cardstock base, and adhere your sentiment to this. 

Step eight. Final step bling your card out. I used sequins and liquid glass to add a bit of shine to the card in two clusters. 

Here is the final card, you can really see that third generation stamping.
