I don’t know if it’s an actual thing, but I think that Galentine’s Day should officially be noticed on the calendar! Not everyone has a ‘significant other’ to give a card to on Valentine’s Day. But just about everyone has some special gals pal that they could send Galentine’s Day cards to. What do you think?
Okay, so maybe we don’t need one certain day to acknowledge our BFF’s. Any time is a good time to show your friend how much you appreciate having them in your life. One thing I am really missing, during this pandemic, is getting together with my friends for coffee! That’s why I chose to reach back in my stamp stash, and pull out the MFT Friends at First Sip set.
I decided to even colour the images to reflect me and my bestie! That’s me on the left, with the long brown hair. 🙂 Purple is her favourite colour, that’s how I chose the sweater colour.
I still had my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers on my desk, so I decided I would watercolour the images. First, set up a piece of watercolour paper and the images in your stamp platform. Because of the texture of the paper, you should stamp at least twice, to get a clear, crisp image. After stamping in Nocturne ink, cover the images with clear embossing powder, and then heat set. Now you’re ready to watercolour! Choose your favourites – and have fun! What colours does your bestie like to wear?
After colouring, use your Big Shot with the coordinating Friends at First Sip dies & die cut the images. I like to add dimension, so if you have a piece of fun foam, die cut the shapes from that, too. Glue the layers together, and set aside. Next, create your background. On a piece of light green cardstock, blend on some Pine Needles Distress Oxide ink. To create the grass levels, just tear a piece of copy paper, to use as your mask. Now, glue the images onto your ink blended background. For the white clouds, use the 2 sizes of clouds in the MFT Beach Bunnies die set. Die cut them from white cardstock, and glue them at the top of the card front.
Stamp the sentiment from the Friends at First Sip set onto watercolour paper; repeat the steps with the Nocturne ink and clear embossing powder. Attach the sentiment across the top middle of the card front. Finally, attach your card front to a light blue card base.
The dimension adds lots of fun to the card, don’t you think?
