Project and photographs by Vanessa Spencer
Our Shoppe Manager knows that a card can add the icing on the cake at birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Which is why she recommends assembling an army of already made personalized cards instead of making a last minute run to the store for your friend/family’s next big event.
To get started, our Shoppe Manager and several other Stampington sidekicks took a pack of plain white cards and added a light aqua background by mixing sky blue and yellow pastel acrylic paint. Then, for more colorful details with a hint of decoupaged imperfection, they tore and glued bright strips of Art Papers and tacked on patterned washi tape for texture. For an extra personal touch, you can add snippets of text to describe the person receiving the card. For example, “she was a creative soul” or “she decided to leap.” You can keep it simple with just a few words, or add more….it’s all in your hands! To create more depth, stamps and red paint tie the final look together.
