Hi everyone! “water you up to?” A very wet week and now for some sunshine and a water card! YAY!
I had to show you the inside first… I love how it turned out! lol
It’s like a book style, shadow box, interactive, slim line size, dimensional card! 3 ½ x 6 inches but it’s really a box that you’ll see in my little short video below. I wish I knew how to keep the resolution so the quality was still here when I upload. There must be some trick! I’m not ambitious enough to take the time to learn. I’d rather make cards! You can smash it to mail it… It’ll probably need the 2 oz postage stamp.
I used a bunch of the new dies from Memory Box, Distress Oxide Ink pads for all the coloring and Taylored Expressions ink blender brushes. So fun… I like coloring dies this way. I hope you can see that I added some white pigment ink/Sugar Cube from Taylored Expressions, down the centers of the front background piece and the inside background piece… like there’s some light glowing in.
I spattered with water. After it dried I spattered with some white watercolor paint.
I forgot to add some of the new Memory Box Fairy Drop Clear Domed adhesive embellishments! They would’ve been a really cool! Check them out HERE!
I got carried away with pictures… I cut out two though! lol
To make this, I added 1 ½ inch to my card base measurement, then scored so I would have ½ inch for the spine and the ½ inch piece to glue my top panel to and a ½ inch for the side. You can kinda see the white in the picture above…bottom right corner. I did have to trim out some of it so the white didn’t show behind the bubbles and curves. If you made this A2 size, you probably wouldn’t need to do that.
The two inside pieces I made/cut a scant 3 ½ in plus an ⅛ in for both sides so be sure to add a ¼ in to whatever size you make your card.
The top panel is only scored on the left side to glue to the spine. The right side glues to the top ½ inch of the cardbase.
Sorry, I’m one of those wing it card makers that can figure out stuff as I go. Hope you can figure it out too!
Linking my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge… Use Dies and/or Punches
