Today - shaker cards using positive and negative of a word die - a happy birthday die!
You get two cards for the price of one!
|The Elizabeth crafts Happy Birthday word die, a stunning die, very easy to use positive and negative. Also using the Cottage Cutz Stitched ovals.|
|Step 2 the completed front part of the card, ready with acetate, frame and embossed front sheet.|
|Step 3: Here's a snippet of inky photo paper, made with Distress Ink pads (Mustard seed, Spiced marmalade pads, SU Lively lavender + Peeled paint re-inkers) and damp crumpled cling wrap method. Gloss card is smooched with random inks, damped scrunched cling wrap is laid over it to dry. |
Add double sided tape to back of piece for word die. Cut the word die.
Step 4: Added the sheet of photo paper to a snippet of white card, after cutting it, peeling off the positive of the word die to expose the intact negative of the die on lower layer.
I have cut another word die cut out of white craft foam (adding double sided tape on the back of it also), for the happy birthday die.
Lay the positive layer on top of foam cut so it pops up nicely on the card.
|Step 5: I decided I needed to match the colours of the die cut with the background for shaker, so really mixed media here! Some torn up tissue paper, glued on scrap of card, coloured with similar toned sprays.|
|Step 6: Here are all the shaker elements in the inside of the foam layer, it was die cut with inside size die, then adhered with tape + non tacky glue to the back. I say non-tacky cos tacky glue can stick to sequins, etc.|
|Step 7. Add seal on back of shaker, I used some anti static powder on back of the acetate. The seal on back of foam needs to be complete before turning it over.|
|Completed card 1, also used embossing folder by *Taylored Expressions called Snow fall, *available from Bec.- although not on site. I actually embossed it from both ends to extend the embossing.|
|Card 2: You probably cant see it but used Spellbinder Pierced Rectangles die set to cut out the photo paper. Just used the pierced section to give a pierced edge. Two snippets of green used here, folder is a 5 x 7" Cuttlebug one called Dominoes. |
