Story Card Sunday: The Little Things

Hi all!

It's Sunday, which means it is time for another installment in the Story Card Sunday series.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comThis week's Story Card has an artsy twist! We're going to use paint to create a textured effect.

Let me show you this fun technique and how you can make a Story Card like this one.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comStart by cutting two base cards with the Story Card steel dies. Cut a rectangle with Pocket of Love steel dies.

You are going to want to protect your work surface with a craft mat or scratch paper. Set a base card on the work surface. Squirt craft paint all over it.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comLeave the plastic wrap in place until the paint is completely dry. This will take several hours. Once the paint is dry, peel off the plastic wrap.

While I was working on this Story Card, I made a couple more. Notice how the texture varies from card to card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comYour Story Card will likely wrinkle because of the paint so you are going to want to adhere the base card to the second base card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comTake the small rectangle and stamp a phrase onto it. I used stamps from the Favorite Things and Hello Darling stamp sets.

I'll be back again next week with another Story Card Sunday tutorial. Hope to see you then.
