I wanted to make a unique wedding card and decided to use a classic tattoo art image as the focal point.
CARD (5.5" tall x 4.25" wide)
I created the base card from white cardstock and scored it at the top so that my tattoo art card opens from the bottom. I layered the top panel with white cardstock displaying rounded corners and blended distress ink edges.
For the image panel I die cut a shaped panel from white cardstock, embossed the edges, blended the edges with distress ink, and attached it to the layered card base. I placed the tattoo art on a round of white cardstock and colored it with gamsol and colored pencils. I blended the edges with distress ink and matted the completed image on blue cardstock. To complete the image panel I popped the matted image slightly off the surface of the shaped background.
As a finishing touch to the card front I affixed a red rhinestone to each of its four corners.
For the inside card panel I made a replica of the front panel without the matted image. I left the panel blank.
I also handmade a white envelope from heavy cover stock.
