Amanitas Mini Card

Hi everyone :-D

My second post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or go direct to the post here. :-D

I have another CAS (clean and simple), one layer, mini card to share with you. It´s this Amanitas Mini Card

This was a quick and easy to make card.

I cut out a card base from a white cardstock paper and rounded two opposite corners with round corner paper puncher. Card dimensions are 76 mm x 101 mm (3" x 4"). 

I used four stamps from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set.

I stamped directly to the card base: sentiment in the middle of the card base and mushrooms in the left corner. I stamped mushrooms in masking technique. After the ink was dry, I fixed few lines with permanent black pen. Then I colored mushrooms with colored pencils and added thick coat of transparent varnish on Amanitas´s dots to pop them up and to create glossy accents

At the end, I embellished card with homemade red faux enamel dots. I learned how to make faux enamel dots from video tutorial by ScrapTips on YouTube. First I made glue dots with a glue gun on a backing paper and colored them with Marabu glass Vermilion color. I left them dry one day. After drying, I glued them on card with Pritt universal glue.

  • Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy'
