Need some ideas for a creative way to tell someone special “I miss you”? Check out this card making idea:
Supplies You’ll Need for Making a Similar Greeting Card:
- One Page From the Clear Scraps Tree Mini Album
- To achieve exactly the effect shown, you’ll need to emboss the acrylic tree shape using an embossing machine and embossing folder. I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, which has now been discontinued, but there are many similar products that would work for doing this.
- Paint Pens: I used paint pens that are now discontinued, but there are many similar paint pens that would work for this project.
- Alphabet Letter Stamps: The alphabet letter stamps I used for this project Chic Alpha by Fancy Pants, Sharie’s Lower Alpha Mini Stamp Set by Inque Boutique, Ret are all discontinued, but there are many letter stamps that would work for this. If you already have letter stamps, use the ones you have. If you don’t, I recommend checking out the selection of letter stamps available at Scrapbook.com.
- Patterned Papers: The patterned papers I used in this project are by Cosmo Cricket and BasicGrey, and they are no longer available. You can use whatever similar papers you happen to have in your stash.
- Magic Mesh — I don’t think Magic Mesh is available any more, but there are a few different ways you can get a similar effect. If I were going to try to replicate this card, I’d probably use a mesh stencil or stamp like this one or this one to create and cut out a paper border design that would give sort of the same effect..
- Decorative Scissors: Fiskars Mini Scallop Paper Edgers
- Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger Industries
- Stamping Ink: There are many brands of stamping ink that could create this type of effect. I used bunches of different stamping inks in this project, including StaZon Ink, Fluid Chalk Inks by Clearsnap,
Versacraft Ink by Tsukineko. If you have similar inks in your craft supplies stash, feel free to use those.
- Metallic Gel Pens
- Strathmore Bristol Board
- Circle Template
- Zip Dry Paper Glue
