FRIDA 5x7 Card with Ink Road Stamps

Monday, February 19, 2024

I really struggle with 5x7 cards and when I saw Craft Roulette this past Friday was this size card, I was a little discouraged at first... But I can't stop my streak of making cards - this will be 125th, consecutive card I have made with the parameters as inspiration! So let's walk through today's card! First I went through my stash of old patterned paper and settled on some paper that had colors that looked to like it would meet the formal and information parameter.

Since I did not make a card last month using the Show Us Your SheetLoad sketch from January 2024, I decided to scale it for a 5x7 card. For some of the panels I cut following the sketch, I made my own crisscross pattern with a stencil and black ink. I also added some splatter and let it dry while trimming my pieces of my card.

I put my card together and added a few touches of shimmery green cardstock. My image was stamped and colored with alcohol markers and I used an oval to cut my Frida out as I thought it would fit the image better than circle. For my sentiment, I embossed it in white on black cardstock and I'm relying on the word "coffee" to meet the warm element to finish of my card!
