Dream Mini Card

Hi everyone :-D

Today is my birthday and would like to thank everyone for beautiful wishes! I am having lovely and super fun day. :-D 

I was crafting a bit this evening and made this CAS (clean and simple), one layerDream Mini Card

This is a CASE of my Enjoy Card and it was quick and easy to make. I was also inspired with Chakra Colors.

I cut out 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 stamped mini snail from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set on card base, colored it with colored pencils and covered it with transparent varnish to create glossy accents.

I drew path and wrote sentiment with a black superfine permanent pen.

I embellished card with homemade violet 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 Amethyst color. After drying, I glued them on the card base with transparent varnish (it works better than glue). 

List of supplies: 
  • Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy'
  • white cardstock paper 
  • Koh-i-noor Mondeluz aquarell colored pencils (Titanium White 3, Lavender Violet 8)
  • colored pencils (skin color, pink)  
  • Staedtler Lumocolor permanent black pen S (superfine) 0.4 mm 
  • Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black) 
  • Marabu glass color (Amethyst 081) 
  • transparent varnish with extra gloss
  • transparent low temperature glue stick  
  • scoring board 
  • trimmer 
  • ruler
  • pencil 
  • eraser  
  • polymer stamp handle (38 mm x 35 mm)
  • crafting needle 
  • tweezers
  • round corner paper puncher 
  • Dremel 920 glue gun, low temperature
  • baking paper
  • toothpicks 
  • Nivea baby cleaning wipes
