In this creative card tutorial, Joy Baldwin shares how she creates a sunburst using Archival Ink and Stickles Glitter Gels.


Hello Sunshine Ranger Card Step 1

Step 1: Use the MAKE ART STAY-tion to hold a Wendy Vecchi Perfect Cardstock Card Panel in place. Use low-tack tape and start in the lower center of the card panel and tape off sections of different widths, going from the center to the top so it resembles sun rays. Use an Ink Blending Tool with Foam to apply ink into each section, alternating with Sun Dazed, Sea Grass and Coastal Coral.

Step 2: This is how it is starting to look, keep taping and inking until the whole top of the card is inked.

Step 5: Working on another piece of White Cardstock, stamp the sentiment “Hello Sunshine” with Grey Tinted Embossing Ink. Pour a small amount of Blueberry Speckle Embossing Powder over top of the stamped image, remove the excess and return to the jar. Use the Heat It Tool to melt Embossing Powder. Trim down sentiment piece to fit the bottom of the inked panel. Add some White Foam Tape behind the sentiment and adhere that to the bottom of the card.
