To brighten your day

Hi Janja here. Welcome to the blog today.
As much as I love creating my cards with lots of cutouts, it’s fun to take a step back occasionally and create a simple card.

- CottageCutz die Gardening Tomte
- blank card: 4 ¼ x 5 ½" (10,8 x 14 cm), folded
- white cardstock: 3 1/2 x 4 13/16" (8,9 x 12,2 cm)
- different colors of cardstock
- different colors of ink pads
- white ink pen
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape

Start by die-cutting all the pieces for the main image out from different colors of cardstock. For greater depth, use ink pads that are slightly darker than the cardstock.

Then cut out a rectangle from white cardstock.
To add a little more depth to the overall look, leave the die in place and shade around the bottom with a grey ink pad and blender brush. You will get white unshaded edges at the bottom.
I printed this cute quote later on the top.

Trim the selected patterned paper to the size of a blank card. Stick it on the front of the card.

Completed card.

Thank you for stopping by.
