Here is my second card from the Ditsy Print Background. (See the first one HERE). I created a soft background using the Kind Confetti set. The floral die cut sentiment is popped up and offset on black.
Getting 2 cards out of one background is always a bonus.
Stamped up the background with the Ditsy Print and coloured with Copics. Die cut the bold alphabet word 3 times : on the pattern background, on white and on black. I coloured the white one with Copics and stamped with Rustic Linen, then layered it offset on the black. Added a white gel pen line on top to give it a look of more dimension.
If you would like to see the steps I took to make this card, you can keep going ... Step 1 : Stamp your image on the insert page. This will have to be narrower and shorter than the front of your card. I cut out a strip from each side to leave a "blocker" tab at the bottom so that it will not escape from the card.
Step 2 : Stamp the image that will be moving on a separate piece of paper, and cut it out.
Step 3 : This is the front of the card. I had laid the insert on the front of the card and marked in pencil where the insert card will be moving, and the maximum height I wanted it to go (where the blocker tabs must stop). Lay down double sided foam tape on the side and bottom edges making sure it will not go in the place where the insert page goes.
Step 4 : Lay the insert page in the space.
Step 5 : Here you can see how the blocker tabs will stop when it hits the foam step at the top. In fact, I made my tabs a little wider as I felt there was too much wiggle room.
Step 6 : Make the top layer of your card. In my case, I needed it exactly the same size as the card. [If you want a border around the top layer, then you need the foam tape on the card front to NOT go to the edge, as described on the previous step].You need to make a cut out "groove" where the movement will take place. I don't have one of the die sets that do this so I just used a tiny tag die. After taking the photo, I actually made it a little longer by turning the die around, keeping it in line and cutting a little higher so that I had more space for movement.
Step 7 : Peel off the paper on the foam tape on the card front, and stick the top layer on the card. It was actually at this point that you can stick the small square of foam tape at the bottom of the movement groove.
Step 8 : Stick your image that will be moving on the foam dot. [I had put double sided foam on the edges of my hedgehog - but did NOT take off the tape. This keeps it level, but allows it to slide easily.) Voila!
Amethyst colours for February Birthdays. New stamp set for me ... WPlus9 Modern Peonies. I coloured with Prismacolor pencils and popped up on a stencilled background, with a small trip pf patterned paper.
What do you do when you need a quick set of cards ... or gift wrapping?
Grab some delightful Altenew Delicate Blooms stickers ... punch some circles ... stamp or diecut some lacy backgrounds ... add some ribbon ... and voila!!
Bottom left is the box I made for the cards ... pizza box style. Bottom right is another gift wrapped in brown paper, then there was a band of the card I had used for the box left over, so I wrapped that around and popped on the decoration.
I don't have very many animal stamps, so I wondering what I was going to use. But then I remembered this WPlus9 set ... which is a NBUS set for me. My nephew and his partner are expecting a baby girl any day now, so I had to make a card for them. I did a bit of sneaky masking so I could join the "Dad" to the Mom and baby. I decided to keep to a minimal colour combo to keep things CAS.
