Kindness card

Hi there!

I had fun with distress oxides ... playing around folding different kinds of paper and inking them in different ways. The result is lots of experimental pieces lying around on my desk. So expect to see more of them in the coming days/weeks ! 😂

 I used

  • Distress oxide inks as shown above
  • Heart cut file from the silhouette store #10054
  • Computer generated sentiment (Font: Archer Pro)
  • Rhinestones
  • Craft foam for dimension

As mentioned I created folds in the paper, applied the inks directly to the paper and gave it a light spritz of water. When it was completely dry, I flattened it by running it through my Big Shot and cut the heart  from it. Added the swirly frame (cut from white card stock and colored with a Promarker to match the pink from the BG. 

I created a sentiment to go with the idea of the paper being 'touched' . Just love when the message of the sentiment get reinforced by the design . Well that's just me... maybe overthinking ... again... or attention to detail, call it what you like 😊

Card inspired by :

no way hon-not over thinking-I love the way the sentiment matches the design-such a cool way to look at this-I had to read this as was not sure how fold came into it and well you sure did approach this challenge with such a unique take-truly inspired! And I do love the way the paper looks marbled and the colours-naturally I love. And adding the dimension makes the heart just jump off the page. Such an inspired project for us at Ink and so pleased you joined us x
