Mothers Day Card Using April Showers Stamp and Dies

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card to share with you using the new Krista Schneider stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs  At first I intended to make this an Easter card but when I added the 3 chicks it made me think of my mother so I changed it for a Mother’s Day card. Below you will find the easy steps to replicate this card but before we get started I have a blog giveaway. I have extended the deadline due to a busy schedule.

Finished card measures 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” folded
  • Step 1 - Cut White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Score and fold in half to form a vertical side-fold card base. Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (A2)

  • Step 3 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 3/4” x 5”. On a kraft mat add Distress Oxide colors Broken China and Faded Jeans. Spray water to activate the ink. Dip the right bottom into the activated oxides. Dry using a heat tool. Repeat until you reach the desired effect. Place a stencil on top of the dried ink. Add Faded Jeans ink on an ink applicator and apply in a circular motion. Emboss Stitched Stars using the panel. Make sure you use the embossing mat in your Diecut machine. Adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  • Step 4 - Diecut Stitched Stars using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Stamp April Showers (the raindrops) inside the star using Black Ink. Adhere to the card in the center of the embossed star using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. 
  • Step 5 - Stamp April Showers using Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Black Ink (for watercoloring) (Duck and chick 3 times). Color in watercolour medium of your choice. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush. Once dry Diecut with the matching dies from April Showers. Adhere Duck to card using Foam Tape and the 3 chicks with Kids Choice Glue.
