Hello there. Guess what? No rainbow birthday card to share today! Instead I have a new home card for a neighbour who moved last week. She was really upset about it, but it was necessary as she needed help.
I love die cuts and there are so many fun die cutting techniques. One of my favourites is faux dry embossing. I did this technique with the three white houses where I die cut them from Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to a Whisper White A2 panel.
‘Welcome’ and the little home were die cut three times from Whisper White cardstock as well and stacked for dimension. The top layer was ombré coloured with Blueptint Sketch distress ink and a mini blending tool. The stamped sentiment was white heat embossed on a black strip. Once all pieces were assembled on the panel, it was adhered to a white top folding card base. Crystal glaze finished off the card.
I also had a friend who recently had to downsize and move. She loves purple, so I made a similar card for her. This one was not CAS as there were three rows of faux dry embossed houses. Hopefully she will receive it some time this week,
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
