Same same, but different

Hello hello! ^__^

So, a couple of days ago, just another evening... me making this card...

I did need one more card for a friend and this design would be too blingy for him (because this was designed for a girl)....

That got me thinking.... what if I whip up a slightly toned down version of this card using the same craft supplies in a different color scheme?


Yep, I did it! :D

A minimalist look on this one with a  warm color palette and finished off with just a touch of gold sequins.

The process of making these is the exact same, only difference being : the first one has been matted and jazzed up a little more with the shimmery card base and the sequins + pearls.
Whereas the second card, as you can see, is a lot more simpler.

Steps :

This card uses 1 of each of the following elements :

1 Stencil (Flourish by Tim Holtz)
1 Die-cut (Forest Branch by Marianne Creatables)
1 Stamp (Happy Birthday by So Suzy Stamps)

1. First, I stenciled the design.

2. After that applied colors to the die-cut using a blending tool with distress inks.

3. Added a coat of crackle accents to the die-cut and adhered it to cardstock.

4. Stamped sentiment with Archival ink.

5. Lastly finished it off with some sequins.

For the fancier version : (Up to step 5 exactly same)

6. Added pearls along with the sequins and glitter to select leaves of the die-cut.

7. Trimmed, rounded one corner and matted onto purple cardstock. (Rounded the corner of purple cardstock too.)

8. Finally matted it onto silver embossed cardstock. (From my stash.)

And there you have it folks, two projects with same supplies and different color combos!

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely evening!
