Hi there, fellow crafters, Eugy here! Today, I'm excited to share a card I created using the delightful Animal Crackers: Kind Messages stamp from the June release.
This cardmaking process was pretty straightforward and quick, ideal for those times when you need a beautiful card fast. I started by stamping the adorable animal image and proceeded to color it with alcohol markers. The blending and the vibrant colors truly brought these cute creatures to life.
Next, I stamped the same image on masking paper and and did some fussy cutting. After adhering the cutout to the previously colored image, I was ready for the next step, adding an extra pop of cheer to my card.
With the mask in place, I was able to add a stunning rainbow blending effect around the animals using Distress Oxide Inks and the Sun with Rays 6x6 Stencil. The bold and beautiful rainbow hues did a great job at lifting the spirits! After completing the blending, the masking paper was peeled off to reveal the cleanly preserved image underneath.
The final touch was the inclusion of a heartfelt sentiment. I find the entire cardmaking process deeply satisfying, especially when the outcome carries such a supportive and uplifting message.
I hope this inspires you to try out the Animal Crackers: Kind Messages & Coordinating Die set for your next cardmaking project. Happy crafting!
