Expressions in Ink – Quick and Simple Card

By | June 2, 2021

Hi there

Today’s post is a quick and simple card we made at our recent training event. Even though this layout is a simple one it still has lots of texture and layers to please the eye.

The Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so gorgeous and has a lovely range of colours with hints of gold foiling. The Stitched Rectangle Dies (one of my most used sets of dies) add a bit extra to strips of DSP. These have been adhered with dimensionals to add height to our card. To add texture to your card fronts select an embossing folder (Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder) and dry emboss your card front – make sure you stamp your sentiment first!

The Artistically Inked Bundle includes a stamp set and coordinating dies. Here we’ve used the large leaf die and die cut it from gold foil. Add a bit of ribbon – Pale Papaya and White 1/2″ Woven Ribbon – and a selection of ‘bling’ and your card front is complete.

A bit of stamping and a pop of colour completes the inside. This stamp set is a ‘Distinktive’ stamp which creates different opacities in a single stamped image.

What DSP do you have in your stash that you could use to recreate this card?

Until next time …
