Striped Distress Blended Card

Hey, crafty friends! Here is the second of two cards I was asked to make for Making Cards Magazine! They're finally out in the January 2019 issue, and it's so exciting! You can find the first card, here.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for all the products used.



To start the card, I created a 10 x 10cm cardbase and also cut a panel of watercolour paper to the same size. I placed my panel down onto my craft mat and, stuck down strips of washi tape onto it, about 2 cm apart. I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to blend over the white bits of the panel which were showing in between the tape. After I let it dry for a few minutes, I removed the tape to reveal a blue and white striped pattern.


To assemble the card, I placed adhesive tape onto the back of the panel and fixed it to the cardbase. Next, I cut down a piece of watercolour cardstock to 7cm x 10cm and adhered a strip of silver glitter cardstock behind it. I used adhesive tape to stick it to the right of striped panel.

To finish, I stamped a wool ball and two knitting needles from the Crafty Companions set, and coloured them with alcohol markers, before die cutting them. To make the knitting needles look like they were sticking out of the wool, I attached them to the back of the ball, and placed adhesive foam down on the back of the image, to give it a bit of dimension.


Finally, I stamped 'wooly special friend' onto the card and adhered the ball above the sentiment. For the last finishing touch, I thought the card could use some pink, so I die cut a tiny heart and added it with a glue pen.
