Clean And Simple Encouragement Card

by Erum Tasneem

Hello everyone! Erum here with a CAS encouragement card featuring Brush Alpha Die Set, Best Dad and Be Strong Stamp Sets.

I will be using January Inspiration Challenge colour palette for my card today. With the intention, that some of you might like non-floral inspiration I came up with this. As you can see, I literally copied the colour bands!

While Altenew has a wide range of encouragement sentiments, I wanted to make one of my own. A sentiment that would cover the whole card front. I started by masking my panel and creating a very simple inked background in stripes using Orange Cream, Maple Yellow and Pinkalicious.

Next, I cut the panel to 3.5×6 inches (since my card size is 4.5×6 inches). Then, I glued it on a white mat which was slightly wider than my stripes panel.

Second, then I stamped my sentiment, from Be Strong Stamp Set, onto a strip of white cardstock. With this in mind that my Brush Alpha sentiment needs to fit, I placed this strip as close to the lower edge as possible.

Third step, arranging the die cut alphas and forming the sentiment “You can do it”. I glued these down with glossy accents.

Lastly, I popped my dumbell from Best Dad Stamp Set on to the striped panel. Then I popped the whole thing onto a card base.

As you can see, this Brush Alpha die set has thin letters. Therefore, you can form small sentences like the one I used or “How are you”, “Miss You”, “Get well soon” etc.

That is all from my side. See you soon.

Erum, I love large sentiments. This is fabulous though against the colourful striped background of this card. I need to invest in the stamp set with the dumb bells, great for dads, boyfriends and sons too. :O)

You are absolutely correct! You can make one in rainbow colours as well or an ombre one. There are SO many possibilities.
