Our Issue 134 Designer For The Day

Card making How to Papercrafter

With its heartwarming sentiment and pastel ink splotches, Miriam Grazier’s card inspires nostalgia for summers past, while also nailing the expectant joy found in waiting for those temperatures to soar. That duality is one of the best things about the seasons. We reminisce fondly upon the ones that have passed, look forward to those yet to come; and it’s just one of the many beautiful things about this make.

1 Press distress ink onto a craft mat and spritz with water. Pick up the colour with a brayer, then gently roll the ink onto the front of the card, horizontally and vertically. Leave some blank spaces and allow the ink to dry.

2 Repeat with the other coloured distress inks, making sure that you allow them to dry in between switching.

3 Stamp the large Jofy 64 flower and colour it in, then cut out. Trim the watercolour card to 14cm square, then ink around the edges using distress ink in Walnut Stain. Mount this onto the blank.

4 Stamp around the edge using the Jofy 52 ‘Scribble’ stamp. Stamp the Jofy 51 sentiment greeting and emboss using black embossing powder.

5 Attach cheesecloth using small dots of glue, then adhere the flower using 3D foam pads. Adhere the flower using foam pads to lift it from the card. To finish, embellish with gems.
