What a fun Inspirational Photo from the Dazzling Diva Challenge this week! You can use one color, two colors or as many as you want. I have Easter on my mind with lots of pretty colored egg photos everywhere so I decided to use the all! I’ve had this Scalloped Thinlit Die in my stash for months and months and I think I’ve only used it once!
I broke out my Craft Metal Sheets in Pucker Me Pink, Outrageously Orange, Garland Green and Polished Purple and put them through the Big Shot with the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die. That gave me both the cut scallops and the little pieces from inside the scallops. As a die hard Crafter, I hate to throw anything away because HEY! I can use that for something! LOL – like this card! For some reason, the lighting in the photos distorts the colors but they’re really beautiful!
- Cut Whisper White Card Stock using the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die and lay it on top of a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhere using Glue Dots. If you decide which areas will be covered, you can strategically place the Glue Dots so they are only in the places that will be covered with Metal.
- Put a Glue Dot into the areas where you want to insert the Craft Metal pieces and add the colored Craft Metal in the desired pattern.
- Attach Whisper White Seam Binding to the front of the post card and secure behind with Glue Dots.
- Tie a Double Bow using the How to Tie a Double Bow Using Your Fingers Technique (VIDEO HERE) and attach it to the ribbon with Glue Dots.
- Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the postcard to a piece of Daffodil Delight Card Stock that is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored and folded at 4-1/4″.
- Stamp “Happy Birthday” from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set in Versamark Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock and emboss using Silver Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.
- Cut the banner out using Bitty Banner Framelits and the Big Shot.
- Attach the Happy Birthday banner to the card front with Glue Dots and attach Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the dots on the banner.
- Attach a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock to the inside of the card.
