It also doubles as a great card for a wedding or wedding shower. Having a do it yourself wedding? This would be a perfect program cover to hand out to all of your guests.
This is a 5” x 7” card base that was created from cardstock. You can create the base in any size that you enjoy to make. Cut a piece of your favorite patterned paper to fit the base. This piece was cut to 4 ½” x 6 ½”. Also, cut a single piece of cardstock to be your layer for creating. The cardstock piece shown was cut to 4” x 6”.
Now, take a piece of scrap cardstock and roughly tear it to cover the bottom part of your creative layer. Using your blending tool, start with a light color of ink (pink was used here) for your sky. Then, along the edges darken them using a darker color in the same color palette. Here a darker pink ink was used.
Finish the sky by adding a third light color ink different from the first two used. Blue was added here for more of a sunrise/sunset sky. Try to keep this color more in the center of the work.
Go in from the bottom and add the ink color you have chosen for the ground. Depending on the look you want to achieve this can be green for spring or summer or even left white for a winter look. Be sure to get up to and go lightly over the sky area to blend the colors at the horizon line.
This is your background for your card. Use a tape runner to attach it to the card base.
No matter what event you are planning or occasion you need a card for this is the perfect one to share the love. Love is all around all year long and any time is the perfect time to show it. Create this cute card and keep it on hand for those times that you need to share a little love.
