Week 3 – Moody Mauve
Today brings us to the third new In Color, Moody Mauve. I have two cards today and my first one uses the Patchwork Pieces dies, Radiating Stitches dies, Wanted to Say dies and the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper.
A Moody Mauve card base with a Bubble Bath layer cut with the Radiating Stitches die is added. The heart is also from this same die pack. The next layer is Very Vanilla. The Patchwork dies are cut from Bubble Bath card and again with some Fresh as a Daisy patterned paper. These are adhered alternating to get this beautiful Patchwork effect. The Wanted to Say dies cut both layers of the ‘celebrate’ and how good do they look?!!! I added a double bow of Linen Thread adhered to the heart and some In Color Dots to finish it off.
On the inside, I added a Very Vanilla piece with some of the extra Patchwork pieces and a heart in the corner, still leaving plenty of room for your message. Can you believe that I haven’t used any ink or stamps on this card?!
My next card I have used the Countryside Corners dies to make an Easel card. The Cheerful Daisies bundle is a beauty and you can see lots of it used on this fun fancy fold card.
I have had a few people recently ask me how I created these card bases using these dies, so here you go – I hope you can follow this!
To create the card base, fold your cardbase in half. Take the largest die from the Countryside Corners dies and place the folded edge on top of the die, so the cutting edge is outside the card (see image below). It’s best to use some washi tape to hold it in place. Carefully place your top acrylic cutting plate and run through your die cutting machine.
Now you have your card base. Open it up and place it in your Trimmer and using the scoring blade, score a line down the centre of one side (see image below). Fold this in half (valley fold) and this is the top of your card. Cut another piece of card using the same large die. Add glue to the bottom half only of the front panel and attach this extra die cut to create the easel.
Here is a look at it from the side.
On the inside, you can see a layer of Bubble Bath behind the Basic White, a stamped flower and silver foil foliage. The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals so the card front sits behind it creating the easel effect!
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using another of our new In Colors, Pebbled Path.
