Kindness Starts With Us

Hello! Rachel here today with another simple card. The word "kindness" has been on my mind a lot lately, so I guess it's just business as usual that it made its way onto a card I created.


I started my card by cutting a panel with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I stamped my image to the left of the card and then used my Copics to color them. I used a different blue combination than I normally do for this one - B37, B45, B93, and B41. My YGs were the typical YG99, YG97, and YG95. I used my cool grays (C3, C1, and C00) to create the halo around my images that makes them look like they pop off the white card.

After coloring my image, I used my Kindness die to cut the word from panel. I also cut 3 other words from white card stock. I adhered them all together with the colored portion on top and then after adhering my panel to a card base, inlaid the die inside the cut.


This is one of my favorite techniques. It adds a lot of interest to a card without adding a ton of bulk. I finished my sentiment by heat embossing the stamp on a gray piece of cardstock in white. I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape and then added a sprinkling of Moonbeams sequins to finish it off.

Thanks for joining me today!
