4 Cards using Direct to Paper Technique

Catherine CP Designs, CPD Ink, Videos

Create four vibrant and graphic hand made cards using the Direct-to-Paper Technique! These cards are fun and simple to create with 5 ink pads, the Smile, Beautiful Stamp Set and the Beautiful Die.

I love these cards so much! They are bright, cheerful, and are definitely going to make someone smile!

We put a Project Guide Download for you complete with step-by-step and full color project photos to follow along with. Download it here!

Start with one piece of cardstock and swipe your ink pads across in rainbow order. Die cut the Beautiful Word Die and outline from this piece of cardstock to create these cards.

Add a few hearts, or a lot of hearts!

Take the rest of your Direct-to-Paper Technique piece and trim off 1/4″ strips. Stagger them on your card to achieve this fun look.

Cut five strips of 3/4 x 5-1/2″ pieces of cardstock, use the Direct-to-Paper Technique to color them and adhere to your card base.

The Smile, Beautiful Stamp set was designed to pair along with our Beautiful Word Die. With words about kindness, happiness and beauty both inside and out, this mix and match sentiments create a number of options for uplifting and encouraging phrases. The set can be used alone or also pairs well with our Smile Word Die.

This hand-lettered word die is simply beautiful.  The Beautiful Word Die has two layers, one background and one ornate word.  They can be used together or the top layer can stand alone.  This large word die is a statement piece for your card and was designed to work along with the Smile, Beautiful Sentiment Stamp Set.  

CP Inks are gorgeous when using the Direct-to-Paper Technique. Gently swipe your ink pad across the cardstock to create gorgeous color on your cardstock!

CP Ink Pads are made with a foam pad and foam releases ink beautifully creating gorgeous color!

I hope you are inspired to create graphic, bold color cards to send to loved ones! They'll appreciate it now more than ever. Sending hugs, Catherine
