Hi everyone, welcome to today’s blog post for Paper Rose Studio. I have to start off by saying WOWZER’s these pre-foiled card front panels are just absolutely stunning! They come in Gold or Silver, 6×6 or 12×12 packs as well as a variety of packs. They are ultra smooth too so great for Copic colouring and ink blending! That will be next on my agenda in my craft room to play with. For today’s I Copic coloured two cards. I will be the first to admit I blew the dust off my Copic markers to use. Ahhhhh yep, my markers needed some TLC and as I work my way through my craft room supplies you may see me use a variety of mediums over the next couple of months. I realised I was a little out of touch with my colouring so don’t go zooming in on my piccies now.
This year I am incorporating a “shop my stash” mindset. The theory behind this is for me to use what I have rather than hoard it. It isn’t looking pretty tucked away so I might as well enjoy the process and make pretty stuff. Right? The colour pallet for the two cards was led by the WOW! Embossing Powders I used for the HB2U sentiment, By the way, my kids asked me what HB2U stood for and just in case you didn’t know Happy Birthday to you 😜 Thought I better clarify that now. When I cut down these panels they fit perfectly on the Paper Rose Studio AU card bases. For the sentiment, I layered up with white cardstock behind it, 3 layers of cardstock worth. It made for a cool dimensional look.
For both cards, I finished them off with Crystals embellishment. I hope you like today’s card creation. Leave me a comment and don’t forget to visit me on my socials where I showcase other cards just for your viewing pleasure.
