|Inside message: "When I met You"|
Here's your quick card recipe:
1 sheet of cardstock (light to medium in tone)
Matching ink color
Scraps of contrast color paper - cardstock or designer paper
Cut an all over design for your card front on your paper cutting system. For my card, I used the Storybook Cricut Cartridge and cut the "A Wish Came True" design 4 3/4" high. Consider multiple images too - like several hearts or flourishes.
Sponge the matching ink color over particularly on the edges.
Cut out some flowers, hearts, butterflies - whatever image is appropriate for your card.
Glue everything in place and you are done!
(I have to admit my first go at this card was anything but fast. I used my usual pressure setting of 4? (next to the highest) for the Cricut. I had to do a lot of trimming to get my image freed from the rest of the paper and looking good. I turned up the pressure to the highest setting and the next one came out perfectly and was ready to go in about a minute. In hindsight, I'd have been better off to just discard the first one since I had plenty of Baja cardstock. I just hate to throw stuff away!)
Tone-on-tone is always elegant. I love the added visual texture it gives fabric when we use tone-on-tone fabrics for contrast or for the main window treatment design and it can do the same for your cards and scrapbook pages.
