Good morning everyone! I was playing around in my studio the other day and came up with an idea for Happy Cards. You know, cards that you can give to make someone feel happy. So, I grabbed some mis-sized ATC cards and my Basically Bare embellishments and got to it.
The “Happy Birthday” card is created with a Basically Bare Stack-a-Bellies Cupcake on a plain white 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 card. I painted the top with Distress Paint in Picket Fence and the bottom with Art Anthology Big Dip O’Ruby Sorbet.
For the “Aim High” card, I used a Basically Bare Retro Arrow along with Basically Bare’s Blossoms and Leaves. I colored the card with Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, and Mustard Seed, and then used my Blooming Meadow stamp from Hero Arts. I left the Retro Arrow black since that was the color I wanted and painted the Blossom with Mustard Seed Distress Paint and the Leaf with Art Anthology Pesto Colorations mist.
For my third card, I knew I wanted to use a Basically Bare Mustache from the Hats and Staches set. I inked the background with Distress Inks in Faded Jean, Weathered Wood, and Chipped Sapphire and then stamped over that with a stamp from the Stamper’s Anonymous Curious Possibilities set. I used Art Anthology’s Kenyan Copper Sorbet to color my mustache. Just makes me grin looking at it!
These are FUN to make and I am going to love handing them out. Now off to make some more!
