I don’t know about you, but I’ve become very reliant on using dies in a lot of my cards. So when CAS-ual Fridays put out the challenge to make a card without dies, I had to join in!
I started with watercolour paper, and stamped the image. This beautiful image is from “Gabi’s Hibiscus Stamp Set” from 49andMarket. I watercoloured the image and dried with the heat gun, then using the same shimmery watercolours, went all around the watercolour paper with a pale pink.
Once dried, I took one of my stencils and stencilled all the way around the image using Spun Sugar Distress ink. Then with Victorian Velvet, I stamped a script stamp from Heartfelt Creations. (Vintage Life Background stamp.)
I decided I didn’t want any of this image covered up, so I stamped the greeting (from Stamp-It) onto vellum, and folded over the back. I used tiny dots of Glossy Accents to glue it down to the card topper.
Last but not least, I added the topper to a base of Pistachio Pudding from SU.
That’s it, all done. Quite time consuming, but I think it was worth the effort.
