Archival Ink & Stickles Spring Card by Kimberly Boliver

Capture the essence of spring with this gorgeous card crafted by Kimberly Boliver using Archival Inks and Stickles!

Instructions 

Stickles really add shine to the flower, dragonfly and accent dots on this endearing note card. I love the dimension and glisten Stickles add, and it doesn’t rub off when it is dry!

Step 1: Ink smoosh Pebble Beach Archival Ink on a Ranger Craft Sheet and spritz with 91% alcohol. Smoosh a piece of Tim Holtz White Heavy Stock, cut to 4” x 5 ¼”, in the ink to cover most of the cardstock.
