Ombre Effect and Die Cutting

Hi Everybody,

This neat card is featured in todays YouTube Video and it is called   Ombre Effect and Die Cutting  

It uses the Grate Effect die from Spellbinders and I have used the waste from the die to create my card front

I have used this idea before to create a really lovely card and showed you how to get two cards from the one die cut 

But this time I thought I would  do this in another way to get a different type of look and I really liked this card once it was completed

The sentiment is a bold statement on the card too and this is one I shall use time and time again. I cut it several times and layered them together for strength

The sequins just make it pop and they are a very popular embellishment at present. 

In the vidoe I have used other colours for the card too and as long as the colours blend together your cards will be fine. 

Don't worry if the ink looks blotchy because once it is cut out with the die no one will know as so little of it will show ... have fun

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  5. Lovely, Christina! I have watched many of your videos... I noticed you use mainly wet glue as adhesive. I was wondering what brand you use and where you purchase. Thank you!

  6. Super card, using the 'waste', would you believe it....luv Ursula xx

  7. Hi Christina

    The ombre affect is very effective and suitable for both female and male cards, obviously with a more subtle colour for the male.... unless, of course, he happens to like pink! lol
