American Crafts: “You’re the Best” Card

Hello! Today I’m up on the American Crafts Blog with a Thank You Card. Let someone know how much you appreciate them by telling them they are the BEST with this card created with the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things collection.

I began this card with a 5×7 textured white cardstock base. I spread a layer of white gesso over the card so that I could do a little mixed media with the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons.

I used the blue and violet crayons to create a watercolor looking background by mixing the colors on a piece of plastic, wetting them with a mist of water and then “smooshing” them into the background.
I then added some flecks of black art crayon by scribbling the black crayon on the plastic again, picking up the color with a wet paint brush, and then flicking it onto the page.

I used the stamps to create a few butterflies for the card, and used the “You’re the Best” stamp as the sentiment for the card.

I stamped the words several times and then cut out each individual word to scatter down the side of the mason jar die cut.

I tied the feather die cuts together to adorn the right side of the mason jar and then added floral die cuts and a floral piece fussy cut from the Blossom to Awesome paper.
Bands of patterned paper and washi tape anchor the design and the black enamel dots add a bit of sparkle while mimicking the black paint splatters on the background of the card.
