Hello friends and happy New Year! Today I am on the Birch Press Design blog sharing some beautiful new Valentine's themed products with you and I absolutely love this new Petal Heart layering die!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. black cardstock. Using the Pinpoint Radial Plate die, I cut the background from black cardstock. I adhered this stitched background directly to the cardstock base using LineCo PH neutral bookbinding glue (my go-to liquid adhesive).
Using the new Petal Heart Layering dies, I cut Layer C (the bottom layer) from a fuschia pink cardstock. Layer B (the middle layer) from flamingo pink glitter paper and Layer A (the top layer) from a blushing bride pink cardstock. Since I made two hearts for this one card, I then reversed the colors and cut Layer C in blushing bride pink cardstock, Layer B in flamingo pink glitter paper and Layer A in fuschia pink cardstock. For both hearts, I adhered all three layers together with LineCo glue.
I adhered both layered hearts to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I used two sentiments from the Lingo Thanks stamp set. I stamped each sentiment in fuschia ink on thin strips of white cardstock. I notched both ends of each sentiment strip before adhering each sentiment strip over one heart. Lastly, I added a couple iridescent sequins to the card using glue dots for added dimension and sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed this beautiful layered heart card! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
Happy New Year
Hello! Hello! Happy New Year friends and welcome back! I'm excited to be returning to a regular blogging schedule after taking some much needed time off for the holiday season. Today I'm kicking things off with a slimline New Year's themed card using the Cheers stamp set (retired) from 88 and Clear.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Crest smoothcardstock. Using the Slimline Frames and Portholes die from Newton's Nook, I die cut the background from black cardstock. I stamped the champagne bottle, wine glasses, top hat and party hat in Versamark ink on white cardstock. I heat embossed all the images with gold embossing powder and then fussy cut each image (there is no coordinating die). I die cut the large numbers (retired Stampin' UP!) from gold glitter cardstock. I adhered all the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly on a thin white strip of cardstock, I stamped the sentiment "make it amazing" in Memento Tuxedo black ink. I notched the left end before adhering the sentiment strip to the upper righthand corner of the card.
May this new year bring you blessings in abundance of love, joy, health, peace and prosperity!
