I hope you don’t mind one more card using Kinda Eclectic but I think this one is pretty different from a lot of the other cards I showed you. I’m sharing it as part of the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad’s Quick & Easy Cards post for today. So check out my contribution:
See, quick… easy… and just a little bling to keep it sparkly fun! It was another display board card and I was sad to see it didn’t make it up on the boards this year… but I noticed another card that had a similar design so I can understand why they had to pick one. So this is mine and if you order from me in the next month or two, don’t be surprised if one of these guys makes it to your mail box as a thank you for your order!
Tips for making this card:
- The green polka dots are the polka dot image from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set, stamped twice on the card front. If you have the clear-mount version of the stamp set, you can “best guess” line up the images (which is what I did for this card… total eyeballing and luck!) or get precise by grabbing your Stamp-a-ma-jig (see it here).
- Use In Color Sequins to add a little sparkle to your dots (and help cover up any that didn’t stamp perfectly!). I used a glue dot to hold them down which gives you a little dimension as well!
- Wrap some linen thread around the inside edge of your card (right next to the red cardstock) to add some subtle texture and keep everything from blending together.
As you can tell, this card comes together quick with very few layers (yeah, like 1 – ha ha) and just a few of those embellishments you get because they are so cute but you always forget to use! Pull them out and enjoy them.
