Without further ado keep on reading the post. ↓
To begin with, I started by smooshing in a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock Shaded Lilac & Spun Sugar distress oxide inks to create the background for the first card. As, I wanted a soft watercolor look. Once the background was the way that I wanted it, I set it aside while I ran through the die-cutting machine the Mid-Century Frame Die to die cut out of white card stock. In the meanwhile in a separate piece of white card stock, I gold heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Born to Sparkle Stamp Set with Metallic Gold Rich Embossing Powder which, I trimmed to fit in the center of the die-cutting as you can see in the picture above. By the time that I was done with the die-cutting, and heat embossing the card panel was already dry so, I ran the card panel through the die-cutting machine along with Stitched Rectangles Dies as I wanted to add a stitched look to the edges of the card panel. Right after the die-cutting, I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 size top folding white card base with double sided tape, next I adhered the frame die-cutting in the center of the card with liquid glue, and last but not least, I adhered the backing of the sentiment in the center of the frame with double sided tape to add a little more dimension, and I called this card done!
For the next example, I dry embossed the white card panel by using one of the Next Level Embossing Folder by We R Memory Keepers as you can see in the picture above. Next, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Tag’d Die to die-cut the tag out of white card stock. Then after the die-cutting, I stamped the top part of the tag by using the Tag’d Stamp Set with the same distress oxide color combo that I used for the previous example. Right after, I gold heat embossed one of the sentiments from the same stamp set with the same gold embossing powder. To divide the gold embossing from the stamping on the tag, I added a skinny piece of gold washitape, and to finish the tag off I tied a piece of hemp cord which I finished with a bow as you can see in the picture above.
Finally, I adhered the backing of the tag with double sided tape in a wonky way to the dry embossed card panel, and I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 standard size top folding white card base. And, I called this card done.
Finally to finish both cards off, I adhered a few Bridal Mix Jewels for a sparkly look.
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.
