Hey Everyone! Ken here with another Ken's Kreations. Today I am so excited to show you a step-by-step project using one of my new favorite craft mediums INKA-GOLD. I made this card using my CRICUT EXPLORE and the amazing CRICUT SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE.
Last month Cricut release a new cartridge called SIMPLE EVERYDAY CARDS, which features amazing simple cards that can be cut in minutes on the CRICUT EXPLORE. Well even though I have over 200 cartridges in my life already...I do not have this one. Luckily I DO HAVE the CRICUT SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE so as soon as the cartridge was released online it was also released to me in Design Space!! Well I have a someone in my life who has been helping me out both personally and professionally and I wanted to make something special to say a real COLORFUL THANKS!
Below you will find a Step-By-Step photo tutorial on how to make this card. It is so easy using your CRICUT EXPLORE and Design Space. So here we go:
Start By Going Into Design Space And Sizing The Card At 7" Wide. The Grey Piece You See On The Screen Will Be Used To Paint The INKA-GOLD Onto
Cut Out The Card One White/Card Card Stock 105#. The Heavier The Better Since We Will Be Painting INKA-GOLD Onto It.
While You Machine Is Cutting You Can Get Your Supplies Ready. I Used RANGER 15" CRAFT SHEET and INKA-GOLD in 6 different Colors.
After The Card Has Finished The Cut, Take The Base Sheet And The Following INKA-GOLD Colors LAVA RED, ORANGE, YELLOW GOLD, EMERALD, STEEL BLUE, and VIOLET
Using Latex Gloves Rub The INKA-GOLD All Over The Base Of The Card
Once You Have Finished With All Of The Colors, Let Dry For 5 Minutes And Then Using A Shirt Or Towel Lightly Rub The Top Of The INKA-GOLD. Since This Is A Bee-Wax Base It Will Turn To A Nice Glossy Shine.
Once You Have Buffed The Entire Base You Will Take Your SCOTCH ATG And Run It Around The Permitter Of The Card And Insert It Into The Inside Of The Thank You Card.
Taking The LAVA RED, YELLOW GOLD, STEEL BLUE and VIOLET INKA-GOLD Rub A Small Amount On An Embellishment Of You Choice. Let It Dry For 5 Minutes And Buff The Top Of The Embellishment.
To Finish The Thank You Card Use Your SCOTCH ATG And Attach The Embellishment To The Front Of The Card
And that is how you can make your own COLORFUL THANK YOU CARD using your CRICUT EXPLORE and CRICUT SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE. For all the supplies you will need to make this card please see below and make sure to check back tomorrow to see what other Kreations I come up with!!
