Friends "Stick" Together Card


Tami with you today on the Clear Scraps Blog to share a fun with you.

With most folks "sheltering at home", frequent contact with friends is probably lacking at this time. Sure we can text, keep up on social media, even video chat --- but how about good old snail mail? How excited would you be to get a card from a friend? So why not make a few cards and send them out to your friends to give the gift of friendship with a little touch of surprise. Bet you'd make their day!

This card is super easy to make thanks to the Clear Scraps Cactus Pots 6 X6 Stencil...


I used alcohol inks on glossy paper to make my "printed" papers for the cactus, pots and dirt mound. Then I traced around the cactus and pot elements with a black permanent pen and cut them out. I cut a freeform shape to set my pots on. And the background was made by inking the Chevron 6 X 6 Stencil with a blue alcohol ink; I stenciled the pattern one way, then flipped the stencil and inked again to create the pattern.

This card would also be quick to make in multiples. Just make more alcohol inked "printed" papers in the different colors, then trace and cut out the pieces.

If you'd like to see how I made this card step-by-step, please view this short video...
