I guess it's winter, huh?! So my cards seem to be inspired by me needing sunshine. 😂 I shared a sponged sunset last time. Today I am sharing a simple sponged sun...with texture this time!
This was super simple to do. Just used a circle mask (cut a circle from a piece of Vellum cardstock...making sure there is extra vellum around the whole circle to protect the cardstock you are sponging on) to sponge a sun where I wanted it on the cardstock. Then emboss it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and add whatever other details you want! I colored this umbrella with Stampin' Blends makers.
And I just totally love this fun texture!
I also loved this sponged greeting. I like how you can easily get an ombre look. (I also have a fun trick to punch a smaller postage stamp. See the photo below!)
Here is how I made a smaller postage stamp. I first punched out the greeting, lining up the bottom of the stamp with the bottom of the punch. So it had extra on top. Then, I grabbed a Post-It, stuck it to that, and used that to guide the punched greeting back into the punch. I then lined up the edges, and punched off the excess. Voila! A smaller postage stamp!
I hope you enjoy this card! Please let me know if you have any questions on anything! I would love to help you with any of your papercrafting needs!
