Happy Day

Hello there!  Ann here with a card I made with Collectables from the Kaisercraft collection:  Ubud Dreams (and a little stamping and stencilling).



The Ubud Dreams Collectables are all in lovely shades of aqua, blue and green, with some contrast natural, so I of course stayed within that colour range.

Firstly, stencil the background with texture paste onto blue cardstock - the Kaisercraft 12 x 12" stencil called Intricate Tiles was my choice, because one of the tiles replicated exactly the tiles in the stamp set 'Mosaic'.  In the second photo, you can see one of the pieces from the collectables, showing the same pattern.  Leave this panel to dry thoroughly - I left mine overnight.  Trim to 10.5 x 13.5cm.

The only stamping on my card was the delicate background to the door - using the half doily shape from the stamp set Mosaic and white heat embossing onto vellum. The beauty of vellum is that it doesn't show the cut edge very clearly, so easy and quick to fussy cut, but this stamp set includes matching dies, so even easier!

To put this card together, I first sponged the edges of my pieces (other than the vellum) with DI Gathered Twigs.  I felt this made the individual pieces more cohesive on my card.

The card base is Kraft card - measuring 22.5 x 15cm, folded in half.  I needed to customise the size of this card, which is slightly larger than usual, as the main piece (the door) required a little space around it.  I then added a few embellishments to complete this card.

Thank you so much for visiting today, and I hope you get to enjoy some wonderful crafting time soon!
