A Round of Applause Card Using CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you all had a fabulous week!

Today it is my turn on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog and I created a simple card, making a sentiment panel using a few different stamp sets.

To complete my card, I used CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Bravo," "Mon Ami," and "Daisy Chain" stamp sets.

To start my card, I used an ink blending tool to blend persimmon ink onto an A2 sized card front. Then I flicked some gold color shine over the top and blew it dry with a heat gun. Usually I let this air dry but I have figured out that heating it dry actually seems to bring out the shine a bit better.

I put the background aside to stamp the sentiment panel. First I stamped the "applause" sentiment from "Bravo" using persimmon ink onto white card stock. I then layered the "round of" above it using coral ink. I was going to leave this and make the panel smaller but decided to go through my CAS-ual Fridays Stamp sets to see what I could find to use. The "my friend" sentiment from "Mon Ami" jumped out at me because it was so different from the fonts of the first two sentiments.

Next I stamped a border from the "Daisy Chain" in coral ink, die cut the panel and tied some gold thread around the top. I mounted the panel onto the card front using foam adhesive. My last step was to add a gold die cut star that I had cut out of gold card stock using the "Fun-Fetti Fri-dies."
