Debut post with HNDMD using CrafTangles products - Swapna Patil

Hi.. HNDMD followers Swapna here with my first post here. I am very happy to be part of the team, its a wonderful feeling.

Now coming to my post

Card 1

Its always challenging to me to use such masculine images on cards.
  • I scored the card base.
  • Mixed embossing paste and gold shimmer and applied it through the stencil on card front.
  • Stamped sentiment with black ink and stamped the bike image on another piece of card stock, fussy cut it out.
  • I sponged the image and card front.
  • I made the matching envelope and stamped image on it with white pigment ink.

Card 2
  • I stamped the card image with a grey ink on white card front.
  • Stamped the same image on another piece of card stock with pink ink, then stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with iridescent embossing powder. Fussy cut the image out.
  • Stamped and heat embossed sentiment and cut in shape of speech bubble, inked the edges.
  • I glued car image and sentiment on a vellum, then glued it on card base.
  • Added few sequins to bling it up.
  • Made matching envelope.

Card 3
  • Its my favourite among the three.
  • I used distress inks and applied on one corner of the white piece of card stock, sprayed few drops of water and lifted it with paper towel.
  • Stamped image with a grey ink and coloured with zig marker.
  • Then stamped sentiment with same ink.
  • I stamped other part of sentiment on another white strip and made the channel for it.

  • This is how the card reveals the full sentiment.
  • Foam mounted the panel on kraft card base.

Thank you so much for visiting.
