Pierrot Sprite!

Hello my friends!

I don’t know if this has ever happened to you but… today I started creating a card that was meant to be a ‘sorry you are leaving’ card (for a friend for work) but ended up creating a ‘sorry for your loss’ card! Oh well…I guess it went abit darker than it was supposed to! (lol) I have to admit that I love it though as the image is really nice and grey happens to be one of my favorite colors 🙂 Hope you like it too!

Quick Instructions:

To make this card I cut a black cardstock panel almost the size of my card base. Then I cut two large pieces of patterned paper that I inked all around to make them look more cohesive. I also cut a stripe of patterned paper to use for my sentiment, I inked its edges as well. I printed and colored the image with ZIGs. Then I die cut it using a circle die. Since I didn’t have any pearls I decided to use a confetti die and die cut some circlies out of black cardstock. Once all my pieces were ready I adhered all the big parts down using double sided tape and glued down the small parts using a glue pen. Last I stamped the sentiment and that was my card done!

Supplies used:

  • 100gsm printer paper (to print the image – go abit thicker if your printer allows it and you have the paper)
  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • The Works -Black craft card 200gsm
