It`s Friday and the launch day for the dies that I have been featuring all week, and here is a card with a designer look about it. I just love how you can make so many different designs with just one particular die set. Don't forget to tune into Hochanda tonight at 6 to see more amazing ideas from the design team (I`ve seen them and they are mind blowingly good).
what was used:
Crafters Companion, Die`sire, Create a Card, Love is in the Air dies
Crafters Companion, Die`sire, Essentials, Decorative Corners dies
Sheena, Grooving 60s, Crazy Perspective stencil
Crafters Companion, Opulent Flourishes foil transfers
Crafters Companion, Gold Foil
Crafters Companion, Luxury Cardstock - gold pack
Pebeo, Empire Gold gilding wax
Cosmic Shimmer misters - Peaqcock green & antique gold
Tim Holtz crackle medium
black Versa Fine ink pad
gold embossing powder
black & gold thread tissue paper
4 x 3mm gold gems
1cm AB dazzler gem
crown card embellishment made with Scan n Cut machine
This is not a difficult card to make but perhaps not for the beginner.
Cut the heart shape from the green card by cutting once and then flipping the die over onto the reverse of the card, matching it up with the already cut out section and then run it through the die cutting machine.
Burnish the side of the heart on the front of the design to smooth down the die cut shape.
Roughly cut out a heart shape larger than the die cut heart and secure it over the die cut shape to form a mask.
Secure the Crazy Perspective stencil onto green card and then spritz with the Peacock green mister and allow to dry. When dry spritz lightly with the antique gold spritzer and allow to dry. When dry carefully remove the stencil and cut to size.
Select a crown from the scan n cut pre installed shapes and cut to required size (if you do not have a scan & cut machine you could find an image of a crown, print it onto card and cut around it).
Paint the crown gold and when dry cover with the Tim Holtz crackle medium and allow to dry.
When the crackle medium is dry rub over the top of it with a black Versa Fine ink pad to pick out the crackles and rub off the excess with a baby wipe.
The backing paper with the heart die cut is finished off by lightly rubbing on the Empire gold gilding wax.
The sentiment in the centre of the heart is applied to the tissue paper and secured to the back of the heart.
When securing the heart paper to the card it is really important that you get the tissue paper as flat as possible so I used double sided tape and tried to but each strip up to the next so as to not allow any air pockets to form.
Have fun if you try this and remember its only paper.............
