It’s Shabneez here and I hope you’re looking forward to the week ahead! You know, so often have to make a few cards but don’t have a lot of time to spend on them, yet I still want them to look good. In this post I show you how, with the help of a stencil, sentiment stamp and distress inks you can make 3 beautiful cards in just 30 minutes.
The hardest choice I had to make was which stencils to use as there are so many CrafTangles stencils that I wanted to use! Anyway, I settled on three and put them all on a sheet of A3 watercolour paper. I then inked them using distress inks and spritzed them with water. I left them to dry naturally as it didn’t take long but you could use a heat gun to speed up the process even more.
While the images were drying, I chose co-ordinating CrafTangles cardstock and cut to the sizes I wanted my card bases.
For my first card, I cut a 4″x4″ square from the stencil background and adhered it to the 5″x5″ blue card blank. I cut another strip to go across the card and heat embossed a sentiment. To finish I added a few sequins.
