Tangible results

I can’t resist a stamp with a sense of humor (case in point). So, if the recipient doesn’t understand the significance of this tangible card, the stamped message offers assistance.

And what better way to emphasize it than with neon colors and big polka dots in a sunburst design? Special, indeed. I’ve created a sunburst design on a card before, simply by cutting out triangles and adhering them to the card. For this card, I designed a die-cut sunburst using my Silhouette Portrait (my design is available to download here).


Here’s how to make it:

Make a card from a 5-by-10-inch piece of neon-blue cardstock. Adhere a 4 1/2-inch-square die-cut of a sunburst pattern in black-and-white polka dots (I created mine using my Silhouette Portrait and polka dot cardstock; you can download my sunburst design here), centered, to the card’s front.


Stamp This is a Real Card! stamp by Hero Arts in black ink (I used Versafine in onyx black) onto white pearlescent cardstock.


Highlight portions of the stamped image using a neon-pink pen (such as from the Day Glo gel pen collection by Heidi Swapp).


Cut out the stamped image, leaving a small margin around it. Using dimensional adhesive, affix the cutout to the lower-right portion of the card’s front.


Using dimensional adhesive, affix a neon-yellow chipboard arrow (I used a Color Magic chipboard arrow by Heidi Swapp and neon-yellow ink) next to the upper-left corner of the sentiment, overlapping it slightly.
