Today I'm taking a break from the slimline cards and sharing two sweet A2 size cards featuring the beautiful "Soul Sisters" stamp set from the July new product release at Whimsy Stamps. Initially I didn't think I would like this stamp set as much as I do, but when I combined it with the Arched Window Die (also from Whimsy Stamps) and a stenciled Distress Oxide ink background, these really came out quite eye catching!
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
Please note, both of these cards were made the same way, simply using different color combinations. The base of these two A2 sized cards were created from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I placed a 4 1/4" x 1 1/2 piece of Early Espresso cardstock as the floor or window seat of the card. I cut the Arched Window die from white cardstock. I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock the same size as the Arched Window to stencil on. First, I ink blended Broken China Distress Oxide ink onto the cardstock. Then I laid the Star Galaxy Stencil on top and added more Distress Oxide ink in Chipped Sapphire. I put the ink blended background behind the white Arched Frame and adhered both to the center of the card. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored them using Copic markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut 2 Electronic Cutting machine to cut the images out (in lieu of fussy cutting them). I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I stamped the sentiments in Memento Tuxedo black ink on strips of white cardstock and adhered them to the tops and bottoms of each card.
I hope you have enjoyed these dreamy cards. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
