To begin with I started by fully inking it up an A2 size white card panel with embossing ink. Next, I covered the inking with Midas Touch Embossing Glitter, and I carefully heat set it with the dual heat tool. Once the embossing glitter was melted, I ran through the die-cutting machine the glitter embossed card panel along with the Watercolor Strips Cover Die. Right after the die-cutting was done I carefully removed the die-cutting pieces because I was planning to create two cards with the negative, and positive pieces.
So, for the first card I used all of the negatives stripes from the die-cutting by adhering each of them using the positive frame as my guide with liquid glue to an A2 size white card panel. Once they were all adhered to the white card panel, I carefully remove the frame die-cutting. Then, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Great Big Hi Die to die-cut the shadow layer, and the top layer out of white cardstock (I repeated this step 3X per each layer, as I wanted a dimensional Hi) As soon as all of the die-cuttings were done, I stacked each of the layers and I adhered the shadow layers to the card panel with liquid glue. As for the top layer, I decided to clear heat embossed it for a shiny look. Right after, I adhered it to its shadow layer with liquid glue. Lastly, I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Great Big Greetings Stamp Set, and I adhered it underneath the Big Hi with foam mounting tape. To finish the card panel off, I adhered some Platinum Jewels here and there for an extra shine look.
For the second card, as I mentioned earlier I used the positive of the die-cutting frame by adhering the backed of it to an A2 size white card panel with liquid glue. Next, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Thinking of You Die to die-cut it out of white cardstock 3X. Once the die-cutting part was done, I stacked them all, and I clear embossed it. Right after, I adhered the die-cutting to the card panel with liquid glue. For the tittles of the i’s I added Nuvo Crystal Drops for a shiny look (because was kind of difficult to clear embossing them) Lastly, I adhered some of the Platinum Jewels here and there to continue the sparkly-shiny look as the previous example.
For the last example, I ran through the die-cutting machine an A2 size white card panel along with the Cozy Flannel Cover Die to die-cut the white background for the card. Next, I ran through the die-cutting machine another white card panel along with the Mega Hello Die for the hello die-cutting for the card. Then, after all the die-cuttings were done, I adhered the backed of the background die-cutting frame to an A2 size white card panel ling liquid glue, and I heat embossed the mega hello with the same Midas Touch Embossing Glitter as you can see in the picture above. Right after the glitter heat embossing, I adhered backed of the mega hello to the card panel with liquid glue. Lastly, to finish the card panel off I adhered more of the Platinum Jewels for a continuously look.
To finish the cards off, as usual I adhered each of the card panels to their white card bases with foam mounting tape to add a little dimension to each of them.
So, that’s all for today friends, I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs, and the challenge a try! As, always I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts.
