Hello hello crafty friends! Thanks for coming back to another tutorial. Today I will be showing you how to make a super fun spring card that is focused on spring pastels and sparkle. Again, I’m so loving my distress oxides and its starting to be hard for my not to pick them up each day. I remember I felt that way with my copics a few months back…then it was my poly chromos….LOL. what can I say, I like change. Anyway, lets get started with this fun card.
I first blending my colors using Shaded Lilac, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar in that order. I have an obsession to blend these colors to have a gradient affect (even if its not “blendable”…lol) So I tried my hardest to get that gradient effect with this color combo as much as I could. HOWEVER you can still see the hard lines…(I hate that) some don’t mind it at all. If this is a pet peeve of yours as well, I’ve found that the blending brushes works so much better in blending the “unblendable” and for me, that’s what I use when I know it might be a challenge.
Once I was done with blending, I die cut the SSS Butterfly Shimmer die and added a piece of SSS Silver Glitter Cardstock in the back. I also cut out SSS Spring Blessings die cut 2 times for dimension. I added some Lucy’s Cards Ice Crystal Sequins for an extra pop of sparkle. I had some leftover butterfly pieces from the cut out and added them to my card.
That’s it! A great spring time card full of sparkle and color. Thanks so very much for stopping by. I hope to see you next time. The products I used to make this card and where I purchased them are listed below…just click on the image and go shopping. 🙂
