The Theme of Tonight….The Beauty of Simple Die Cutting - Project One

Hello,Happy Friday! So as the title says the theme of tonight is the beauty of simple die cutting and including tonight we will be posting details on the individual cards featured in the photograph above over three nights. 

For these projects the cards have been made using a range of dies from Wild Rose Studio, Sweet Dixie and Creative Expressions designed by Sue WilsonTo start this project series off, I wanted to say that each of the cards was made using 300gsm smooth white card and each of the card layers (the coloured card and the white card) was stuck down using Scotch Double Sided tape

I thought tonight I would start with the Fairy card, shown in the photograph below.

The die used on this card is part of a set from Sweet Dixie called 'Fairy and Butterflies'. As well as the fairy, there are also two butterflies that make up this set although we have not used them here. You can cut, emboss and stencil with these Sweet Dixie Dies, so they are good for working with. 

In order to create some texture we used an embossing folder from Creative Expressions called 'Sparkle Square' on about a third of the top white card and picked out the middle of the alternate squares by using Rangers Liquid Pearls in 'Mint Green'. I know I am biased but up close the Liquid Pearls look really beautiful against the white card.  

A piece of thin white card was stuck down using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue above the embossed part of the card, mounted on turquoise card creating a two tone look. To finish the card off we added a sentiment using a clear stamp from Wild Rose Studio, stamped in a Versacraft Ink Pad 'Baby Blue' to give some contrast.

Remember to look out for the other cards over the next two nights and on the third night I will be posting details of our next card workshop. Can you guess what the theme will be?
