Total Time: 10 minutes, drying time excluded

Yield: one birthday card

Supplies:

  • A4 sheet of ordinary white printer paper
  • 8.2 x 5.6 in rose pink shimmer cardstock
  • 5.1 x 3.7 in white handmade tissue paper
  • 5.1 x 3.7 in cream corrugated cardstock
  • magenta Dala glass glaze
  • food colorings: yellow, sky blue, and apple green
  • quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • large petal palm punch from XCut, code XCU 261811
  • standard scissors
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • 4 small plastic bowls
  • 2 to 3 sponges - use ones that were inside a medicine bottle

Steps:

  1. Add a bit of the food colorings and the glass glaze to the plastic bowls, adding each to a separate bowl. Do not add water to the food colorings, as you want to have strong, bold colors. Tip: You can use pink food coloring instead of magenta glass glaze - I did not have pink food coloring, so I decided to use what I had in stock.
  2. Use the sponges to color the printer paper, allowing the colors to interflow with one another. Allow to dry thoroughly.
