Light and Airy Card Set

Hi, crafty peeps! It's Ro here today to share a card set I created with the beautiful Robin's Nest papers.


I love how the blues are so striking against the glittered cardstock and white background. The list of supplies used is at the end of this post.



To start, cut 4 pieces of white cardstock to A2 size (8.5" x 4.25", fold in half). For the top layers, cut 4 pieces of blue glitter cardstock (2 Teal, 2 Ocean) to 4 1/8" x 4 1/8". Then cut 4 pieces of the wedding glitter cardstock to 4" x 4".



Adhere the layers together and attach them to the card base toward the top of the card.  Die cut and stamp four feathers each from Teal and Ocean Glitter Cardstock and attach to the card. Add three Dew Drops and stamp the sentiment.


For the inside of the card, ink up the feather stamp and stamp off once on scratch paper, then stamp on the card. This gives it a lighter touch and enables the sender to write on the inside without the background getting in the way.


These cards were so quick and easy to do. I simply stamped them with four different sentiments and bound four of them together with a ribbon. They make great gifts for shower prizes, hostesses, or for craft fair sales.



I hope I inspired you to try mass producing some easy, yet beautiful, cards.  All four cards only took three pieces of cardstock to decorate the card bases. See you soon!
