Hello and Welcome!!!
Watch video tutorial here!!!
Today we will be creating a unique style Bridge Card! We just need to make a few folds and cuts in order to create the base for our card. I will give you all of the measurements and cutting instructions in this video!
Our little gnome stamps and dies will come from the Ai Gnomes Set (5785) which is a brand-new set from the Summer 2023 collection. We can stamp them onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Flesh Colour, Sugared Almond Pink, Deep Vermillion, Mustard, Evergreen, Smoky Teal, Lt Gray, Mid Brown. Let’s also die cut these using the coordinating dies.
Next, we can create the Bridge card base and add some decorative patterned papers from the Ai Gnomes Paper Pack (5832). Again, all of the measurements are included in the video!
Now we can die cut a beautiful frame using the brand-new Ai Journal Die Set. This will act as the bridge element for our card. We will add a few layers to this frame. The top layer will be used to create our sky and grass which will be inked up using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Speckled Egg and Peeled Paint. I’ll show you and easy way to mask off each of these areas on your card. We can quickly spatter this panel using some Bleed Proof White Ink.
Let’s assemble the card layers and add the bridge element to the card, being careful to glue the bridge element to only the right and left sides of the frame panel.
The sentiment for the inside of the card is from the same Gnome set and it says, “friends gnome matter what” and the sentiment for the front of the card will come from the brand-new Ai Little Sentiments Set (5797) and will say, “Hi Friend!”. The “Hi Friend” sentiment will be stamped onto a cute banner from that same Ai Journal Die Set.
We will add a few cute white stars to the banner from the Buttons Galore & More Sparkletz Firecracker embellishment set.
Finally, let’s add some highlights using our white gel pen. This will just make everything pop out a bit better!
