To begin with I started by adding texture to the card panel, and for that I ran through my Fiskars Paper Crimper a piece of Neenah 80lb white card stock 2X that measured H6’’ X W5’’ as the paper crimper kind of shrink the paper once it creates the creases in the paper. Once the card panels were textured I rubed the clear embossing ink pad without being extremely careful as I was going for a distress look, once each card panel had the ink embossing on it I blue heat embossed them by applying Pastel Glacier Mint embossing powder. Soon after, they were heat embossed I trimmed them down to a smaller size than a standard A2 size card panel,and I set them aside.
In the meanwhile, I ran through the die cutting machine 2 of the Bella Flora dies along with white card stock to create the floral images for the cards. I love so much these dies as they also have the shadow layer which I also used to die cut them from velum. At this point I realized that the dies also included a Hello die along with its shadow layer, so I went ahead and die cut the hello 3X out of white card stock as I wanted to add dimension, and its layer from velum. Once I had all the die cutting done I adhered them all to their shadow layer with spray adhesive as I wanted a clean & simple look without the glue showing throughout the velum.
As for the cards layouts I made a Portrait and a landscape layout, so what I did was to adhere the floral image along with the hello to each sides of each card as you can see in the picture above. Then I adhered the card panels with foam mounting tape to a side folding white card base, because I wanted to keep them pretty simple. Last but not least I wrapped around to each card panel metallic embroidery thread in silver color which I finished with a tied bow to finish the cards off, I adhered sequins here and there to each card for a touch of sparkle.
I hope these card inspire you to give the challenge a try, as always I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts. Down below you’ll find the supply list for all the products used in this post, as a referral from where they were received or purchased from.
