Hi friends! Today’s card is a clean and simple birthday card using a cool colour scheme! While I love including many colours and elements on my cards, I always love making clean and simple cards once and a while!
If you want to watch me make this card, check out the YouTube video below! This is my first time uploading a card making video to YouTube so I can’t wait for you all to watch it!
I first started by masking off certain parts of the my stencil using sticky notes – I used the Dreamy Dy Diagonal Stencil by Echo Park Paper Co.. Once the stencil was ready, I used the following distress oxides and inks to create a simple line gradient in the bottom corner of my card front:
- Villanous Potion
- Wilted Violet
- Faded Jeans
- Salty Ocean
- Mowed Lawn
- Twisted Citron
To finish, I stamped two small and simple sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Best Year Yet stamp and adhered my card front to an A2 card base. The stamp set I used is from Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit – I LOVE this card kit and cannot wait to make birthday cards using the supplies in this kit.
Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!
