Hello everyone… Today, I am super excited to share my very first digital card project, Friends Like You as an ambassador to Graciellie Design. Gracie invited me to join her ambassador team last December and it is new crafting adventure to me using digital stamp and paper. So thankful for this opportunity!
There are several ways to work with digital stamps and papers. You can simply use Word Document, or anything similar to that program. Also, you can use any of your digital cutting software designer, such as Silhouette Studio or Cricut.
I use my Silhouette Studio software, which you can download here for the free basic software and install on your computer or laptop.
I open the png files from the Friends Like You on the Silhouette Studio working place, arrange them, and resize them. And then print them with my Cannon printer in black and white setting. I let them dried overnight before color them becuase it is an inkjet printer. You also can use craft heater to dry the ink when you want to work faster 🙂
To create the 3D look flower, first I colored the 3 flowers with the 4 blue shades from The Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils – The Primaries set. After that, I fussy cut them in 2 sizes. First size is the small size for the center of the flower, and then the medium size for the middle. I leave the last flower in the original size as the base.
Using my curling tool, I shape them. Then I used Art Glitter Dries Clear to stacked them together.
I added some gems in the middle of the flower for extra bling 🙂
As for the sentiment, I printed them on a textured white cardstock, and cut it using one of the We R Memory Keepers rectangle scallop dies.
I printed the on of the Pink & Blue Watercolored Papers on a white printing paper, trimmed it and added it on a white cardstock. I would print directly on white cardstock next time 🙂
I added a dark grey cardstock as a mat on the white card base, then added the digital paper mat on it with 3d foam tape.
After that I added the sentiment label and flower on the card with permanent strong adhesive glue. I finished my card with some white sequins for more bling on it.
I totally enjoy working with Graciellie Design digital stamps and papers. She has beautiful digital collections at her store, especially you want to check the new Valentine’s Day theme sets!
My hope is that you are inspired to continue creating and share the joy and love with others through your handmade cards. Thank you so much for visiting me today and may you all have a fabulous day!
