The Final Day of the CAS-ual Fridays March 2021 Release

 It is Friday and the final day of the CAS-ual Fridays March Release!!!! I saved the best card (or at least my FAVORITE card) I created for last. 

I went way out of my comfort zone with this card design using the new Swirls Stencil, paired with the new Love Notes stamp set. 

I started off this card by blending Distress Ink in Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover onto a white, A2 card panel. I then used the Swirls Stencil and the same ink colors to stencil the swirls on different areas of my card panel. There was no rhyme or reason, I just had fun!!! When I was done stenciling, I blended some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges to add a little contrast to the greens I used. 

Next I used Walnut Stain and Picket Fence Spray Stain to flick over the card front. I was trying for small splatters BUT sometimes you get what you get.

As the splatter was drying, I stamped the sentiment strips in black, using the Love Notes stamp set. I then used Vintage Photo Distress Ink across the top and Walnut Stain dragged on the edges of each sentiment strip. I distressed the edges using some sand paper.

When the green panel was dry, I stamped the music from the Love Notes stamp set using WOW! Clear Embossing Ink and then heat embossed it with WOW! Clear Embossing Powder. I used a paint brush and water to lighten the ink inside the music so that they would stand out a bit.

I used sand paper to distress the edges of the panel and adhered it to a white, A2, top folding card. 

I used foam adhesive to adhere the sentiment strips and then added some green Nuvo Crystal Drops over some of the stenciled swirls. The card was complete!!!

This was COMPLETELY out of my comfort zone but a lot of fun to create. I really love how it came out!!!
