Hi here’s another of the cards I have made using PanPastels. In this walk through guide / card making tutorial I will take you through how to make your own homemade handmade version of my lily birthday card. Of course when making it at home it doesn’t have to be a birthday card if you don’t want it to be.
To begin making this card I started with a white piece of A5 card and began by covering the bottom half of the card (with the card laying portrait) with the yellow PanPastel I applied the colour using the sofft sponges (that can be bought from Your Creativity store) when i was happy with the yellow half I used the other side of the same sponge to apply the green from the top down and when the two met at the middle I used the yellow to go slightly over the top of the green to blend the two colours in the middle. Next I began stamping the lily’s all around the edges of the page using perfect medium and using a sofft tool applied a mixture of dark green PanPastel and mica powder (I mixed the PanPastel myself to get the green I wanted and then added green mica powder to the mixture).
When the whole page was finished I buffed it a little using paper kitchen towels.
Next I took a piece of white glossy card and stamped and embossed the image using a mixture of white embossing powder and green PanPastel . Then coloured in the lily with very pale mixtures of PanPastel colours and cut around the outside of the design with scissors.
To put the whole card together I then took a pale green A5 base card and a piece of green mirror board trimmed to 12cm x 19cm, I embossed a simple corner pattern in the top left corner and bottom right corner of the green mirror board and then stuck it with flat glue in the center of the base card. Next I trimmed the card with the mica lily’s to fit inside the embossed pattern of the mirror board (keeping the waste after trimming) and stuck it down. I stamped the greeting on to the waste card with the lily’s on it, coloured using more of the green with mica mixture, mounted it on to another small piece of green mirror board and stuck it diagonally across the bottom left corner of the card. Finally I took a piece of yellow ribbon and a piece of green ribbon and used them both to tie one bow which I stuck to the top right hand corner of the card.
