Yesterday’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was written by Dina Kowal. She showed us how to create a word card. It’s a very fun and easy project, perfect for showing off your patterned paper.

My card base was created out of a 3 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was scored at 3 1/2″ and 7″. My letters were cut out of MME Lost and Found Market Street Patterned paper. The paper edges were sanded and stitched. On top of the I and the bottom of the U an image from Verve’s Because of you was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

I recently got the red and yellow Mixed Media Sampler from Faber-Castell and was itching to try the aquarelle and pastel pencils from those sets. I used the red aquarelle and yellow pastel pencil to color the flower on the U and blended it with an embossing pen (I really need to get a new blending pen. Mine was dry).

A sentiment from the Because of you was stamped in Rich Cocoa Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the second smallest of the Label 21 Nestabilities die. The inner part was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink and part of the flower image was stamped over it in the same ink. The sentiment was adhered to the lower part of the heart and topped with a butterfly, cut and embossed out of Kraft cardstock with one of dies from the Wonderful Wing Shapabilities set. Rhinestones on the flower, butterfly and lower part on the I finish off the card.
