Cardmaking, Thank You

You’re the Sweetest

Hello, crafty friend! I’m back with the second project in a mini series tutorials featuring the new stamp & die collection featuring sweet candy images and sentiments by Catherine Pooler Designs. If you missed the first project, start HERE. Otherwise, let’s get started with this one…

Step 1: Fill the Jars

I selected three of the empty jars I stamped and cut at the start of this series and filled them up with a rainbow of candy images.

Step 2: Background Inking

I then swiped my mini inkpads over the front of an A2 card base to create a painterly background effect.

Step 3: Layer it Up

A piece of white cardstock was trimmed to 3.75″x5″ and stamped with a sentiment before running it through my sewing machine for a bit of decorative stitching with ombre thread. It was then secured to the center of the card base using foam adhesive.

The left and right jar images were then secured with a flat tape runner adhesive while the third jar was popped up a bit with more foam adhesive.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Finally, white pigment and sparkly ink were splattered around the border of the card front, and a few rainbow sequins finished it off.

This card was super quick to put together and would make for a great mass production project. I already have Christmas cards on my mind, so I’ll make a note to come back to this recipe. Do you mass-produce your holiday cards?
