Making a Card with Ink Blending

This month I have a little bit different project for you, ink smooching on linen cardstock. Instead of using an SVG I am using a die cut with metallic paper from Cutcardstock as a part of their design team.

The card stock used for the card base was Classic Linen Card stock in Solar White. The linen cardstock accepted and held up to the ink and moister from the smooshing technique. The die was cut from Stardream Metallic Paper in Lagoon.

For this card, I combined Distress Oxide inks for the background directly to the linen cardstock and then layered a die cut from Temu on top. The die was cut using a Gemini die-cutting machine.

The Distress Oxide inks were applied directly to a glass mat and spritzed with water. Then the linen cardstock was drawn through the wet ink to get the desired effect. After the card was dried and ironed flat, the die cut was glued into place.

The video tutorial below will show the entire process of smooshing the ink onto the cardstock.

With the cardstock completely dry, the die cut can now be glued into place.
