Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fun technique to share with you today!!! Today, I’m creating a glossy greeting using Glossy Cardstock and some ink refills! I love the striped look!
This simple card has a major wow factor with that glossy striped greeting! This technique is perfect for a greeting or just a background! I got the inspiration for this card from Sandy Jacobson!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I took a piece of Real Red (3-3/4″ x 5″) and ran it through the Big Shot in the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. Then, I layered it onto a piece of Emerald Envy (4″ x 5-1/4″) and placed a strip of Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon across it. I secure the ends to the back side and added this to the card front!
Now for the greeting, I used Glossy Cardstock, a Baby Wipe, and ink refills! Simply fold up the baby wipe so it fits in your hand. Add drips of ink refill to the end. I have used both the rounded end and the layered end. The rounded end comes out more smooth and solid, whereas the other end is more streaky. It’s all up to you! I tried Real Red and Emerald Envy but the red came out pink and the overlap of the colors turned purple. I ended up just doing Emerald Envy for this card. Check out the Video Tutorial below to see blues! When I ran it across the Glossy Cardstock, I went lightly for a more white/streaky look or I pressed hard for a fuller coverage.
The cool thing is that this dries quickly. I used the greeting from the Watercolor Wishes Stamp Set and Memento Ink to stamp the greeting. Be sure to stamp carefully as it will want to slide around if you press at an angle! I punched out the greeting with the 2″ Circle Punch. I added this to a scallop circle die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits in Silver Glimmer Paper. The greeting was then added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
