If you didn’t read my last post you may be wondering what “card salad” is. Click HERE to check out post #3 to learn more about “card salad”. I used 4 of my card salad baggies to make my 11 quick cards! My card salad baggies shown in the center of the photo below gave me a major jump start!!! I love my card salads!
Now in today’s 11 Quick Cards Part 4 post, I’m going to focus on the last 2 of my 11 quick cards.
In the photo below, you’ll see the contents of the card salad baggie I used to create the two cards I’m sharing today. These are all pieces and parts created while playing with ideas for my Northern Lights Technique Class. This class is still available to purchase!
This card was so quick and easy to make!
I did just one thing to the focal piece from my card salad baggie before assembling this card. If you watch my video ahead you can see me create the “stars” in the sky.
I used one of my Water Painters to splattering some tiny specks of water on the focal piece and then I dabbed off the water with a paper towel to remove the color in those spots.
Then all I needed to do was figure out my cardstock colors and layering. My focal piece was cut down so it would fit on a black stitched rectangle die-cut piece. The whole focal element was then popped up on Dimensionals on my Gorgeous Grape card base. I then added a sentiment from the Vine Design Stamp Set. I love the simple clear font of the sentiments in this set!
You may be able to tell that I’ve heat embossed my tree and ground. The background was created with various colors and ink blending to create the look for the Northern Lights.
