Hi Today is day 4 of the Clean and Simple Card class. My 3 cards today are a mix of the techniques we have been learning.
Operation Write Home is requesting Mother's Day cards right now and my box is almost ready to go so I decided to add some Mother's Day cards to it.
The first one uses masking and stamp layering techniques. Many of my supplies are in our storage unit, so I was worried that I didn't have a floral set that I could build on. But, I found this one which is an old Heidi Grace set. I used chalk inks and added some pearl pen to finish. This truly is a one layer card, which is definitely not a strong style for me, so I was really excited with how it turned out.
This one is made with the same supplies, and is also a truly one layer card. :)
After I made the one above, I decided that I wanted to see how it would look with a bit of detail around the masked portion, so I created an inlaid die cut to keep it as one layer. I did ink around the die cut with a bit of blue ink before I put it back in it's place, but I do think I like this one a bit better.
This class is so much fun and I really am learning a lot of good stuff!
