Step 1: Cut the white cardstock into the desired size for your card. Fold the cardstock in half to create a card base.
Step 2: Choose your MFT Stamps bear with balloons 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 Copic markers or any other coloring medium to color the stamped image. Start by coloring the bear and balloons first, then work on the details and shading.
Step 4: Choose your Distress ink or any other ink of your choice, and use an ink blending tool to apply the ink onto the background of the cardstock, creating a gradient effect. Start with a light color and blend in a darker color for depth and dimension.
Step 5: Cut out the colored 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 sequins or ribbon.
Step 8: Write your personalized message on the inside of the card, and you’re done!
