It’s going to be a busy week here on the blog. One of those “when it rains it pours” situations. One of the nice things about cards that utilize all or mostly all die cuts is that they’re relatively quick and anyone can make them, no coloring skills required. Well, I do love to color, but I’ve learned to love working with dies, as well, and as my collection has grown, so has the fun. Today, for my Dies R Us post, I’ve framed some glittery daisies, added a “hello” and ribbon, and called it done in no time at all.
First, my die list:
Before I cut the daisies I adhered white cardstock to a bit of Scor-Tape sheet. Glued the back side of the daisy die cut to pretty designer paper, laid the frame over it and trimmed the designer paper flush with the frame. Mounted that on a cardstock panel. Peeled the Scor-Tape off the surface of the daisies and then sprinkled with micro-fine glitter. The micro-fine glitter has a very soft look to it, but still very glittery. Hard to capture this particular glitter in a photo, so it may be more apparent if you click for a close up. The ribbon is looped and tied in the center with silver thread. This type of bow doesn’t leave much of a knot, but I still settled it into a 1/4” punched hole to eliminate any bulk. Held secure with a spot of Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
After I mounted the frame onto the card base with foam mounting tape I cut the “hello” three times and layered it, not only to give it more dimension, but to sturdy it up since part of it is hanging off the edge of the frame.
And that’s it! Visit my friends on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog for more ideas, and be sure and check the DRU Challenge Blog tomorrow for the start of another new challenge. I’ll be back here with a sample for that challenge tomorrow, too. Enjoy your day!
