Hello~! With the new year approaching, I thought I’d share a sparkly and glittery new year card with you. I created a shaped card mainly put together with Adhesive Sheets – 6 x 12″ and touches of GOLD to welcome 2016 in style!
To be mail-friendly, I made it into one dimension – meaning that I did not add any of my favorite 3D Foam Squares to “pop up” the layers. It is a simple yet elegant card using the beautiful design of the die set and the stunning metallic foil and glitter cardstock, along with clear rhinestones.
To create the shaped card base, I cut and embossed two of the border dies (Flourish Frame Die) with white glitter cardstock. Score ½” on the short side of one die cut.
Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape ¼” Permanent on the scored area, take liner off and match with the other die cut to form one shape. This is your card base. Set aside.
Nest the border die and the insert die (Decorative Frame Insert Die) together and secured with washi tape on top of metallic gold foil cardstock. Cut/emboss through the manual die cutting machine. Repeat with the other dies (Frame Insert and Large Tag Dies) in the set, using a combination of white cardstock and the gold foil cardstock.
To cover the entire intricate die cut, I used the Adhesive Sheets – 6 x 12″. Gently burnish the back with a bone folder and remove from liner. Place on top of the shaped card base for perfect placement. Apply Adhesive Sheets on the other die cuts with the same sheet.
Using the same Adhesive Sheets – 6 x 12″, place a piece of black glitter cardstock (enough to fit the Celebrate Die). Cut/emboss with the manual die cutting machine. It will not leave any residue on the plates or the machine. LOVE!! Place across the card panel.
For the finishing touch, add clear rhinestones to the card panel and it’s ready to be given…
