As you can see the three examples showcased today are pretty clean, and simple yet sparkly designs. So, to begin with I started by running through the die-cutting machine pieces of white cardstock along with the Palm Leaf Die 5X to create the white die-cuttings leaves. In the meantime, I also ran through the die-cutting machine pieces of vellum to die-cut the same Palm Leaf 2X, as well as the shadow layer of the Hello Die. Then, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Thanks so Much die to die-cut the shadow layer out of white cardstock, and the top layer out of gold cardstock. Lastly, I ran though the die-cutting machine the top layer of the Hello to die-cut it out of the gold cardstock.
Right after when all of the die cutting were done, I glitter embossed two of the white palm leaves with Aventurine Embossing Glitter, and I started the layering for the card panel. For the card panel, I used the largest of the A2 Rectangle Stitched Stax as I wanted to add a little extra detail to the edges of the card panel. Once the card panel was detailed, I adhered the backed of it to an A2 top folding white card base with double sided tape. Next, I adhered the backed of the two leaves to the card panel by overlapping them with liquid glue. Lastly, I adhered the top and shadow layer of the Thanks so Much die-cutting with liquid glue, and as soon as they were adhered together I adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape just to add a little bit of dimension.
For the second card, I dry-embossed the card panel by using one of the Geometric Embossing Folder. Once I was done dry-embossing the card panel, I trimmed the edges down and I adhered the backed of it to an A2 top folding white card base with foam mounting tape. Next, I stacked two of the white Palm Leaves, and I gold glitter heat embossed the center of it by using Metallic Gold Sparkle for a distress look. Once the heat embossing was done, I adhered one of the vellum palm leaves to card panel followed for the leaf that I had gold-glitter embossed, as you can see in the picture above I overlapped them. As for the sentiment, I gold heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Say it All Friend Stamp Set in a piece of white cardstock which soon after the heat embossing, I trimmed and adhered it with foam mounting tape to the card panel.
For the third card, I stepped it up creating my own glitter embossing paste by mixing Hercules Embossing Glitter and Aventurine Embossing Glitter with Textured Embossing Clear Paste. Once the paste was mixed, I used the Mesh Stencil to create the pattern for the card. Because… the paste takes time to dry, I waited for approximately 30 minutes before I adhered the panel to the card base. But, as soon as the paste was dry I trimmed the edges of the card panel down, and I adhered it to an A2 white card base with foam mounting tape. Next, I adhered the last white palm leaf with the other vellum palm leaf on top on each other, and I adhered them both to the card panel. As well as, I adhered the hello top and shadow die-cutting layers with liquid glue.
To finish the cards off, I adhered a few jewels here in there to the cards with the white card panels just to give them an extra touch of sparkle.
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.
