Learn to use paint (plus acetate!) to create a layered card.
Dylusions paint from Ranger is a really fun medium to use on cards!
The paint was created for different types of paper crafts. It’s quick-drying and comes in a range of bright, vivid colors. It also comes in a wide-mouth jar, which is a surprising benefit—it’s wide enough so that you can dip in a paintbrush, hotel key card, palette knife or sponge to pick up paint, rather than having to squeeze it out from a tube. It cuts down on waste and offers some new opportunities for application.
You Will Need
Dip hotel key card in paint jar and streak across a 6 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of acetate. Spray water into the palm of your hand and flick onto the wet paint.
Let air dry (if you don’t have heat-resistant acetate) or speed up dry time with a heat tool (for heat-resistant acetate only). Set aside.
Use the key card to put paint onto a palette. Use the loo roll to randomly stamp circles on the glossy white cardstock. Let the cardstock dry.
Stamp the quote on white cardstock, then mat on yellow cardstock, leaving a wider border at the bottom. Glue to the acetate, then glue the acetate to the circle-stamped white cardstock—placing glue only behind the stamped quote. Mat on black cardstock.
Cut a very narrow strip of black cardstock and glue across the piece, overlapping the quote and the yellow mat as shown. Glue the piece to a kraft card blank.
Tie a bow in red gingham ribbon and glue on the left side of the card front. Glue a black button as shown.
