Miss You Card (Stamping on Kraft Cardstock)

Hello! Nicole here and today I want to share a simple, fun, and an easy card to create using one of the Create A Smile Stamp Sets.

Kraft cardstock can really help images to stand out. So I decided to stamp the images using white pigment ink pad. You want to choose a good white pigment ink pad when stamping on a darker colored cardstock. One of my favorite white pigment inks to use is Hero Arts Unicorn Ink Pad. 

Also, adding some background images on a card base can really pop out the focal point of the card to pop!

- Stamp background images first when putting the card together. Pigment inks take a while to dry.
- If you are short on time, use a heat tool to dry the pigment inks quickly. (but the paper might get warped!)
- Try off setting the embellishments when adhering them. It helps the different elements to be balanced.

We will be starting a new project link up for March! Check out our right sidebar to add new projects using CAS stamps in March.
