Postcard Pal


Hi everyone, today I would like to show you guys this quick card using the adorable Stampin‘Up “Postcard Pals“ stamp set.

When it’s not my day (you probably have them too!) then I like to colour with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, because they are effortless in creating a fun and quick result!

I started my card by stamping this cute animal image onto Strathmore Bristol “Smooth Surface“ paper using Versafine “Onyx Black“ ink and clear heat embossing afterwards. Then I coloured the image using the following Zig Markers and my Pentel Aqua Brush: Yellow, Bright Yellow, Orange, Scarlet Red, Persian Blue, Peacock Blue, Pale Gray, Blue Gray, Mid Brown, Dark Brown and Haze Blue.

When the colouring was done I added back in some highlights using a white Gelly Roll pen.

After the colouring was done and dry I die cut a square panel from the coloured image and I also die cut a slightly larger mat from some matching orange card stock.

For my background I choose a stamp by Create a Smile called “Ocean Waves”, which I also stamped on the same Strathmore paper. I coloured the waves with the two blue markers that I used on the animal image as well and then added in the sentiment, using an old Joy Crafts stamp set, saying Happy Birthday in Dutch.

I die cut a yellow mat for the finished waves panel and decided on a dark blue card base.

Now I’m ready to put my card together. I adhered the square mats and the rectangle mats together using liquid glue and then I adhered the combined rectangle mats to my card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my card I adhered the combined square mats on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that’s it for today’s card, I think I know a little boy who will like this card a lot! I wish you a creative day!
