As the year draws to a close and you begin to think of your New Year’s resolutions, think about the wonderful friends you may have lost touch with. Now is the perfect time to reach out. Create a handmade card to say ‘Hello.’ Plan to re-connect in the New Year. Today, we are creating a couple of cards using the Mystic Romance Collection to give you examples.
Use this beautiful card to tell someone how much you miss them. Anyone will surely be impressed with your heartfelt personalized touch.
Create a little pond for your fish first. Brush Journey Color Splash watercolor pencils onto a Color Splash Sheet. Make the pond glisten with a Journey Sparkle Cuts. Then pop up your featured images.
All of the Mystic Romance Collection stamps are intricately detailed giving you plenty of color options. Stamp the fish image from the Koi Dreams Stamp in Orange Rave and then give it shimmer with a bit of Journey Gold Silk. For the flower, stamp it and then use the Journey Color Splash pencils to give the leaves more definition. Replicate the card exactly as we’ve created it, or add your own personal style to this images. It’s all up to you.
