Hi crafty friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start in your part of the world. Here is Florida, it’s hot and rainy at the moment. I’m hopeful that the weekend weather will get better and I can get into the pool over this long weekend.

Years ago, I learned a shortcut to create quick and easy backgrounds and I still use this technique in my cardmaking today. I simply use a colored panel of cardstock and ink blend to add depth and interest in my backgrounds.

For this card, I die cut a piece of pink cardstock and ink blended a cloud stencil using Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink. Next, I added splatters with diluted white acrylic paint and left the panel to dry.

Once the panel was dry, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim the panel, stamped the sentiment, and added my butterflies with foam adhesive. And that’s it.

Making beautiful handmade cards does not have to be time-consuming, it can be stunning and quick at the same time.
