Card in a Flash #2 – Valentines
Posted by Dianette "Jany" Seda en 4 enero 2009
I think I did a pretty nice job with this new Card in a Flash! Actually, I think I did amazingly! First of all, let me tell you with this recipe you will make ten cards in one hour and about 7 minutes. You’ll see all by yourself. Oh, and a most important detail! I did the inside and the envelopes too!
Wanted to share first how it looked like finished but I am (again) still learning how to use this. When I want a gallery I do it individually, when I want it in the gallery. Well, at least I got it all in my post. LOL.
Each picture contains a step. So here are steps 1 to 4 and the final results: [I need to admit that there was an extra step because it wasn’t until the end that I decided to make the envies. So, that is why the pic of the stamped envelopes is at the end.]
Step 1: [finished at 6:32 am]Assemble your supplies:
5 sheets of Scarlet Cardstock
7 sheets of Black Cardstock
1 sheet of White (I used Ultra Smooth) cardstock
3 sheets of lightweight cardstock (I buy a Xerox one that comes 500 sheets X about $12)
Spool of white ribbon
Moulin Rouge Palette Ink
Noir Palette Ink
Script Background Stamp (TAC)
Sprigs Stamp (TAC)
Soul Kisses Stamp (TAC)
10 white A2 envelopes
Step 2: [finished at 6:57 am] Cut everything down
- Card base is black 8.5 X 5.5 scored at 4.25
- Scarlet layer is 4 X 5.25
- Black layer is 2.25 X 3.75
- White layer is 2 X 3.5
- White lightweight cardstock insert is 4 X 5.25
Step 3: [finished at 7:14 am] Stamping
- In the smaller white piece stamp twice the sprig with hearts in Moulin Rouge Palette. I entwined them. It was easier to me to stamp the one in the right before the one in the left. When I tried it the other way it was a mess.
- Stamp the white insert with the sprig too so it matches the outside. I would suggest for time saving to stamp too the left side of the envelopes too.
- Stamp in the white insert the Soul Kisses sentiments in Noir Palette. You can use any of them actually. I just wanted to use that one.
- In the scarlet piece of cardstock stamp the script background in Cotton White Stazon Ink. I lined two pieces since the script wouldn’t cover the whole lenght of the cardstock. That way I would cover both ends (bottom of the first with top of the second) without missing any ink in another surface. I would stamp three times each two pieces. It was fast and easy!
Step 4: [finished at 7:39 am] Assemble (Don’t think you actually need help for this one right? What took me most of the time was trying to make a bow so I did a knot and cut. The rest was easy enough.
