Hey there, good to see you have popped over to the blog today! This card was one of the first cards I made when I received the lovely stamps from Colourific. However, I am only just getting around to showing you it today. This card is very easy to make and the stamps from Colourific do all the talking on this card! These glasses from the stamp set lent themselves to creating this Congratulations toast card.
Congrautlations toast Card Process overview
To start, heat emboss in platinum embossing powder two champagne glasses onto white card. These were coloured in with watercolour paints, but I didn’t use watercolour paper. The amount of water I used was very small so I was able to get away with just using the regular white card. Watercolour paper isn’t a true white, which is what I wanted for the card, so this I why I did not use watercolour paper. If you prefer to, you can do this just as well with watercolour paper.
I only used a couple of colours for this card, using a blue-grey for the glass and a light yellow for the liquid. I didn’t do any fancy shading and wanted to keep it simple and were fussy-cut out once dry. For the background, I added clear water to a white card panel and dropped in a selection of blues allowing them to blend on their own. I did not add the colours close to the edge of the water on the card in order to get a soft fadeout.
The panel was adhered to a white card base and the glasses were foam mounted on top. There is a little ‘bubbles/fizz’ stamp in the stamp set which I heat embossed directly onto the card panel above the glasses, along with a sentiment beneath. The card was finished with a few platinum Nuvo drops as embellishments.
