Back to sheets bought from www.craftsuprint.com only because they make quick and easy cards and if you have a lot to make they are perfect!
Its just one sheet to print and the cutting out is easy enough usually but then with a little decorating they can look amazing
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
Red A4 card
Silver mirri card
Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue
Double sided tape
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card ...
I used the eazi score board to score the A4 red card on line 7 then folded over and ran the bone folder over the fold to sharpen the crease.
I measured and cut out the silver mirri card, then used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch to punch across it
Added double sided tape to the back and stuck in place leaving a narrow border on all sides.
Next I cut out the base layer and added double sided tape to the back – removed the backing from the tape and after stuck it centrally onto the mirri card layer
Now I can start on the decoupage
I cut all the pieces out and stuck tiny sticky pads all over the back of the pieces, removed the waste and then laid each piece of decoupage down.
I did run the top pieces between my thumb and the scissor blade to slightly curve the piece then added sticky pads and positioned on the card.
To decorate I kept it simple – I used the quickie glue pen to highlight sections of the design and then sprinkled with glamour dust
The centre of the poinsettia was glued up and sprinkled with gold glamour dust
And that is another finished card – I dont know why but when I make the more traditional cards like this I feel they are more enjoyed by the older generation
See you next time....
