You Are My Happy Card

Hi Crafties!

Today I am back with a simple card made using cutting-dies!

For this card, I used a green colored cardstock panel cut using a rectangle-die.

I had first dry embossed the panel using Craftreat ‘Stripes’ stencil and a Spellbinders embossing mat.

Then I ran this panel under the ‘You are my Happy’ cuttingdie by ‘Concord & 9th’.

I also separately used the same cutting die on a white cardstock.

And adhered the white diecut on the green panel using inlaid diecutting technique.

I watercolored another panel of watercolor cardstock with blue and offset it behind the main green panel.

I diecut the tree & cloud from the ‘In the city’ thin cuttingdie by ‘little birdie’.

The raindrops are the negative pieces from the white cardstock sentiment.

Finished it off with blue nuvo drops!

Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!

AAA Cards Challenge #124 – Imagine

Floral Easel Card and Tag

Hi Crafties!

I am back with a tutorial for the oval easel card & tag that I posted about in my earlier post.
Let’s get started :

For the card,

I used the Simon Says Stamp ‘Flower Explosion’ background stamp set. It is such a beautiful design.
I heat embossed the image with black embossing powder on watercolor cardstock and colored with Koi watercolours.

Then I used an oval die on the panel and slightly bigger oval-die on black cardstock.

After that, I used the Thanks-die by Pink & Main on the watercolored panel. I also die-cut the ‘thanks’ sentiment from black cardstock. This ‘black cardstock thanks diecut’ I stuck in the negative space made on the watercolored panel.

This is called the ‘inlaid die-cutting technique’.

Then I stuck the watercolored panel and oval black cardstock panel together to add more interest.

I also cut two more oval panels from white cardstock. On one panel I scored at around 1 cm. And applied glue at that part on the backside and adhered it to the other panel.

I also scored the same oval panel midway & applied glue on its lower half (this time on the front) and stuck my watercolored black outlined panel.

Then I stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper and adhered it with foam tape on the inside of the card at the end so that when the card opens, it acts as stopper for the front panel.
Ta da! Our card is ready!

Fr the tag:

I used a Spellbinders tag-die both on watercolour and black cardstock.
After masking, I stamped the same stamp set on the tag and colored it.
I then stamped the sentiment and punched a hole at the top and finished it off with a blue ribbon from my stash.
