I feel like I am on a roll with two things - Spellbinders Decorative Mini Slimline Card Creator - Small Die of the Month from July 2021 and almost one layer cards. So, today I have one more to share with you :)
Oh hello everyone, I hope your weekend is going great and I hope you do get a chance to whip up something crafty.
Here's the card for today:
And yes, from a piece I used for practice, I made a matching tag - for any gift you might give with this card.
So here's how these came together:
Simon Says Clear Stamps Sketched Flowers stamp set (sentiment on the card)
Altenew Hello Beautiful stamp set (sentiment on the tag)
Spellbinders Decorative Mini Slimline Card Creator - Small Die of the Month Jul 21
My Favorite Things Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-namics Die Set
You know the first step by now, right? :) Use MS PowerPoint to plan, size and print the design. User watercolor paper. I used one from Canson. I had not planned exactly to the size of my die, so I fussy cut out a piece from the side of the design and adhered it with flat tape adhesive. That's why my card is "almost" one layer. Even with this piece though, the flat adhesive makes it great for mailing.
Die cut the panel using largest die from Spellbinders SDOM Jul 21. Create a matching back layer using another piece of cardstock.
Color using Altenew watercolors. Add slight variations in colors using colored pencils - I used Studio 71 pencils and Derwent Inktense pencils. Just go with whichever pencils as long as the colors are to your liking.
Add flower center dots with paint pen.
Stamp the sentiment and adhere back panel to make this a landscape shaped card.
Use the left over designs to color and cut out a tag with the Tag Builder die set. Add a black hole reinforcer (die cut using black cardstock using a die from the same Tag Builder die set. Stamp a sentiment on the tag.
