2 different cards using Pattern Paper as background

by Swati Gupta

Hi Guys,

This is Swati Gupta here and today I have a tutorial on how to use pattern papers to make simple backgrounds for your cards. We’ll also be using a stencil on one of the pattern paper for creating a beautiful background.

I am using the latest released stamp set from the Mudra stamp collection.

Card 1:

We will be using Watercolors as our painting medium on this card.

Tip: If you do not have watercolors you can use Mudra Dye ink pads as a substitute. Just squeeze out some ink on a laminated surface by pressing the ink pad on it and pick the ink with a watercolor brush. It would work just perfectly.

Steps:

  1. Make a card base using white cardstock of size 5 3/4″*4 1/4.
  2. Using a bokeh effect pattern paper from Mudra paper – Beary Hugs 12×12 create a card front that is slightly smaller than the card base.
  3. Using Mudra Stamps – Happy Monsoon stamp the raindrops using some versamark ink and heat emboss using blue embossing powder. Fill these drops with a blue color Nuvo drop.
  4. On a watercolour paper, stamp the frog couple image using some waterproof ink and color it using some watercolors.
  5. Fussy cut the whole image and stick on the cardfront using a foam tape.
  6. Stamp the sentiment on another white cardstock sheet and fussy cut it.
  7. Glue the sentiment and the card front on the card base and our card is ready.
  8. You can embellish the card more with Nuvo drops or sequins.

Card 2:

  1. Make a card base using white cardstock of size 4 1/2″*3 1/2.
  2. Using a bokeh effect pattern paper from Mudra paper – Beary Hugs 12×12 create a card front that is slightly smaller than the card base.
  3. Using Mudra Stencil – Dot Paint Circles 6×6 and ink blending technique, make a gradient background of the spiral image.
  4. I have used Liliac and Cornflower Blue MAI dye ink pads.
  5. I have inked the flower chipboard from Mudra-Designer-Chipboard-Diwali-Embellishments in black color and pasted it in the centre of the ink blended spiral.
  6. Then using the sentiment Happy Diwali form the stamp set Mudra Stamps -Diwali-Sentiments- 2020 I have stamped it in black color.
  7. Stick the card front to the cardbase and its done. 🙂

I hope you liked the cards.
