Hello my crafty friends!
So last week I shared with you a sympathy card that I made using the My Mind's Eye "Collectable" Unforgettable collection.
Today I'm going to share a 2nd card using the same collection and the negative space of the Doodlebug Designs die cut.
Here is the "hello" card:
You can see the negative die cut space helps the brown floral paper show through. I inked the edges of the negative space using a Fantastix Coloring tool and CTMH Cocoa ink. I then double-sewed inside the pink striped paper to frame the card.
Next I created a banner and embellishment cluster using Collectable stickers and buttons. I used a Gelly Roll glitter pen to outline the edge of the die cut -- you can see a little shimmer below around the edge of the die cut negative:
For the sentiment, I used the 3D technique that I shared with the So Very Loved layout last week. I used the Mama Elephant Inline Letters dies and cut 4 of each letter in plain white cardstock...and then glued them together one on top of each other to create my own chipboard effect. Then I glued the final letters using the striped brown paper. You can see the dimension below...do you also see the sparkle? I used the Gelly Roll glitter pen to cover the brown stripes for just a touch of shine.
I hope you enjoyed my card today, and remember: it's never too late to send a homemade card to a friend just to say "hello". :)
Have a great week!
