Hello friends, Kylie with you all again today!
I’m sharing how to make some gift cards that you will find are so quick and you will find yourself creating them in no time! I’m using the new ‘Wildflower’ collection.This range has a beautiful,soft theme of florals and watercolour prints in a gorgeous pastel colour palette.
Here is a little look at my completed cards-
I was really happy with the completed result of these cards.I’d love to share with you how I made them and there is also a short video process you can watch as well. But first here is what you will need-
I am using the PS484 Sentiments Gloss paper.It has different quotes on 12 cards that you can seperate for your projects.I am also using the following-
Your favourite Kaiser Mist colours.(Be adventurous and add lots of different colours!)
Some double sided tape and foam dots or tape.
Water mist spray bottle.
Plastic packaging bag or sandwich bag.
PP1016 Wildflower Paper Pad and CT878 Collectables.
Once you have your supplies gently fold and tear which quote card you would like to use.I also like to trim off the perforated edge so it has a neat finish.
Next take your plastic packaging bag or sandwich bag and spray your Kaiser Mist colours together in a cluster.You don’t need to go crazy, less is more for this technique. Then spray over the Kaiser Mist with the water mist.This is totally optional, I find by doing so gives a softer result.If bold is your tune then don’t add your water.
*TIP- Don’t over spray or saturate.
Next, take your sentiments card and face down press over the watercolours on the plastic bag.Keep moving and pressing the card around until you are happy with the result.Allow it to dry fully! It will look a little something like this-
Next take your fave piece of paper from the paper pad….(It will be hard to decide as they are all so pretty!)……And fold it in half.Using the sentiments card as a guide,trim down the paper to size,allowing a slight border.
*TIP- Do make sure the Kaiser Mist is fully dry!
Using double sided tape,adhere the card to the backing…..
All that is left to do now is embellish. I told you they were quick! Once you have finished you will have some pretty little gift tags like these…………..
I hope my tutorial has given you some inspiration today.I have also prepared a short process video for you to watch as well.Enjoy!!
Until next time,
