Sometimes the creative mind takes over and you just have to go with it!!!
I wanted to make some birthday cards to have on hand and I know I wanted to use the Ink Splat (AT-0108) ATS. I pulled out a piece of Cranberry Bliss (CS-0090) card stock and for whatever reason reached for my Turbo Teal Ink Pad (IP-0116). Well I have to say I love how it turned out!
I adhered the Cranberry Bliss piece to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) and then adhered it to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.
Using Silver Embossing Powder (IP-0100) I heat embossed the Make-A-Wish ATS (AT-0246) onto Black Licorice (CS-0003) and cut it out with the coordinating die (DI-0355) or you can buy it as a bundle (BD-0270). I then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085). I added some Special Celebrations Sequins (AC-0115) using Glue Dots (AC-0083). Journey Glaze (AD-0003) was applied to the cup of the sequin. I wanted to try it. It doesn’t change the look but it changed the texture when you touch them. Makes them rounded.
For the inside I stamped it the same way as the card front but used the Gift Slider Die Set (DI-0384) so that you can add a gift card. I will be posting a couple other cards that I made using this die set throughout the week. I wasn’t sure if I really needed this die in my stash or not but I have to say that I am so glad that I purchased it. It comes in handy for gift card giving and I love the uniqueness of it.
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
Happy gift card giving!
