Todays card is just a little bit of fun and shows you that you don't need a lot of dies to be creative. This one uses just one word but the effect is quite good and the sentiment says it all.
- Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender
- Black/ White Card from Papermill Direct
- Baked Ikea Dots
Cut a panel of smooth white card to about 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" and create your blended effect with Blenders to get a pretty finish. Other colors will give you another look so use any Distress Inks that are in your "Stash"
With the die "Hello" from the phrases set cut it as many times as you need in white to fill the front of your inked panel.
I added mine at an angle and cut up the words as I needed to fill the gaps along the sides. When you are happy with the position glue them in place and trim off the overhang to neaten the edges
With the same die cut the word again in black card and I have also cut it in craft foam and glued the two together for a thicker look
Stamp any appropriate sentiment onto black card and heat emboss in white.
Trim the end into a little banner shape
Add your word panel to some black card and leave the tiniest of borders around the edge. Add it to a white Hinged Style base card
Add in the banner, with foam pads underneath to raise it up, where you want it to sit on your card and glue in place the black Hello over one of the white ones
Highlight with some black dots for a really simple card.
More tomorrow ...
