Quick make – Dandelion Wishes card


Hi folks!  Another quick make card for you today.  I am still a little in love with the Distress Oxides and have used them again today to make this card.  So, down to business…


To make my card blank, I cut a sheet of A4 white linen texture card stock lengthways at 14.8cm and folded this in half to make a square card.


I masked off an area around the edges of the front of the card, and applied Distress Oxides in “Worn Lipstick”, “Wilted Violet”, “Salty Ocean” and “Faded Jeans” and blended them with a Tim Holtz blending tool.


I dried the ink with my heat tool, before using a baby wipe to remove some of the colour though a stencil called “Flourish” by Tim Holtz.  Again, I dried with heat tool before moving on to the embossing.



Using a dandelion stamp from my stash, I stamped the image with VersaMark before applying silver embossing powder from Wow! and then heat setting it.


For the topper, I cut a panel from the white linen cardstock measuring 14.4cm x 14.4cm.  I then die cut 3 circles from the panel and embossed some of the dandelion heads randomly over the panel using the same silver embossing powder, before sticking it to the card base using Pinflair glue gel.  I also added a few dots of “Star Dust” Stickles for a bit of extra bling.


For the sentiment, I went with “Birthday Wishes” from the “Birthday Party” stamp set by Crafter’s Companion.  I then cut the words out using a stitched rectangle die before sticking them onto the card with Pinflair glue gel.


I hope you that you have liked this card, if you did, please follow my blog for further ideas and inspiration.  If you are on social media, you can find me on Facebook by clicking here, or on Instagram by clicking here.
