Step 1: Cut the white cardstock into the desired size for your greeting card. Fold the cardstock in half to create a card base.
Step 2: Choose your MFT Stamps bear image or any other stamp you like, and stamp it onto the cardstock using a waterproof black ink. Allow the ink to dry.
Step 3: Use Polychromos pencils or any other coloring medium to color the stamped image. Use light pressure to start, and gradually build up the color until you achieve the desired look.
Step 4: Choose your Distress ink colors and use the ink blending tool to create a blended background on the cardstock around the stamped image. Start with light colors and blend in darker colors for depth and dimension.
Step 5: Cut out the stamped image, leaving a small border around the edges.
Step 6: Use adhesive tape to attach the stamped image to the center of the card base.
Step 7: Add any additional embellishments you desire, such as stickers or sequins.
Step 8: Write your personalized message on the inside of the card, and you’re done!
