Hello crafty Robins, happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week. This is Sadia with a positive vibe card where I will teach how to add interest to your cards with easy detailing. I will use Classified Dew Drops on the card today.

Materials Needed:
  1. Card base
  2. Cardstock in complementary colors (for die-cutting)
  3. Flower and leaf die
  4. Stencil with a floral or abstract pattern
  5. Ink pad and blending tool
  6. White gel pen
  7. Adhesive (glue or double-sided tape)
  8. Dew drops
  9. Die-cutting machine
Card Instructions:
  1. Prepare the Card Base: Start with a lavender card base, folded to your desired size (typically 5×7 inches or A2 size).
  2. Stencil the Right Side: Position your stencil on the right side of the card base. Secure it with stencil tape or low-tack tape to prevent shifting. Using a blending tool, apply violet ink through the stencil. Blend lightly to achieve a soft, gradient effect. Carefully remove the stencil and allow the ink to dry
  3. Die-Cut the Flower and Leaf: Use a die-cutting machine or craft knife to cut out a flower and leaf from cardstock. Opt for colors that contrast well with the lavender card base, such as white for the flower and black for the leaf.
  4. Add Details to the Die-Cuts: With a white gel pen, add small dots on the black leaf to create a whimsical, dotted effect. Use the white pen to add some subtle marks or lines on the petals of the flower, it enhances the texture and depth.
  5. Assemble the Card: Position the die-cut flower and leaf on the card, allowing part of the flower to overlap with the stenciled area. Add die-cuts using glue or double-sided tape.
  6. Add Dew Drops: Once the die-cuts securely adhere, use a small amount of adhesive to attach dew drops to the card. Place them strategically around the flower and leaf to mimic water droplets.

This card shows how easily a little use of a white gel pen can make a big difference. Adding small highlights and details with a white gel pen can enhance the overall look of your card, making it more visually appealing and dynamic.
