I persevered with the fancy fold card I told you about yesterday.
not sure how many card bases I made during my testing process, but I imagine probably
ten or eleven!
I switched over to using non-Stampin' Up! cardstock!
Eventually, I came to the conclusion that it IS necessary to do the
extra cut to make sure the card lines up perfectly!
I went ahead and recorded my video and I'm very pleased with the result!
I'll edit it today so I can post it tomorrow morning.
make today's card I started with a base of Sahara Sand Cardstock, with a
layer of Whisper White and a top layer of Sahara Sand.
I used the large
background stamp from the You've Got This Stamp Set and stamped it
on the top layer using Sahara Sand Ink.
I stamped the Marriage is a
Jorney sentiment which is from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set, at
the bottom right hand side of the top layer using Crumb Cake Ink.
the large and small flower flourishes from the Flourish Thinlits Dies, I
die cut them both is Sahara Sand Cardstock.
The sandwich I used on my
Big Shot was the new Platform & Thinlits Adaptor Plate, then the
Precision Base Plate, cardstock, die and cutting mat.
I ran the sandwich
through the Big Shot twice.
Then I ran my Sizzix Die Brush over the the
dies whilst resting them on the sponge mat and all the bits came out so
The new Platform & Thinlits Adaptor Plate are worth every
penny their reasonable price.
They now come as standard when anyone buys a new Big Shot - excellent value!
painted over the entire die cuts with my Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter
I used some of the retired Sahara Sand Lace Trim to wrap around the
lower half of the top Sahara Sand layer so the base of the ribbon is
just above the sentiment.
If you don't have any of this lace, this card will look just as stunning without the ribbon, or you could use an alternative you have in your stash.
I had adhered the Lace Trim in place with SNAIL, I adhered this top
layer to the card base, making sure I put some Tombow on the ribbon to
make sure it doesn't go walkabouts!
I put Tombow in strategic places on
the back of the large diecut and adhered to the card front.
I did the
same to the smaller flourish and adhered it so it looked as if it's part
of the large flourish.
Can you see the join? LOL!
That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
