Place inked cardstock on a piece of scrap paper before placing it on your crafting surface.
Tip: I will be using a Wendy Vecchi Stay-tion to hold the stencil in place.
Using a palette knife, apply a layer of Translucent Crackle Paste through the openings in the stencil to create a dot pattern.
Once dry, trim to size for the card front.
DIE-CUTTING AND STAMPING
Die-cut 4 Buckeye Leaves: 1 matte gold, 1 matte silver and 2 white
Add a drop of Picket Fence Distress Paint to your craft mat, spritz with water and mix with the Distress Splatter brush. Use the splatter bush to add droplets of the white paint to the die-cuts in a random splatter. Once dry, adhere each in a slightly offset fashion to the white die-cuts.
Adhere foam strips to the and foamsquares to the leaves as shown
Stamp the sentiment in Brushed Corduroy Oxide onto white cardstock and then die-cut.
Pop-up the stenciled panel with foam tape and adhere to the white card base as shown.
Remove the protective backing from the foam tape and adhere to the card background.
Apply Simon Says Stamp Craft Tacky Blue to the die-cut sentiment and adhere to the card base.
Feast your eyes on that yummy crackle!
The metallic leaves give the card just a touch of fancy!
I only used to non-sassy part of this sentiment of this card, but the set has so many snarky options that I will definitely come back for more!
I hope you can see why it is hard for me to resist a rainbow!
This is such an easy and fun card that I hope you will be tempted to give his a try in your favorite color palette!
