DIY Vintage Floral Background_Handmade Card

Hi, crafty friends! It’s May here sharing an encouragement card. If you are following me on Instagram, you may heard that I dropped my iPhone 6 on the floor and shattered the phone screen. However I’m so glad I was able to film the video for today’s card. :)

My inspiration came from the Tango-Inspired card and Lunar New Year card that I made last month. I took layout and stamped background from them, but this time I chose a light coral and blue color scheme for my vintage floral background.

This is a video tutorial showing you how I created my card. You can watch it here or in HD on YouTube. This time I did a voice over for the whole video, and I hope you understand my pronunciation. :)

5 Tips for Stamping the Solid Image on Colored Cardstock

  1. Use a padding underneath your cardstock.
  2. In case you don’t want to miss stamping the part of your image, MISTI or stamp positioner can be used.
  3. Ink up the color well and check the ink coverage on your clear stamp before stamping.
  4. Stamp firmly on the paper with even pressure.
  5. Make sure you don’t move your acrylic block while stamping.

That’s all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and got some inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!
