Hello August…Happy Saturday! I can’t believe it is August already. It is hot, hot, hot in Arizona, but I’m feeling calm and cool in the craft room. I’m sharing a lovely little card today with a fun die cutting technique using the July 2020 Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit – Aging Gorgeously.
Featured Stamp Set
The DetailsI love the gorgeous poppy image in this kit. You can use it in so many ways. For this card, I stamped it three times on a die-cut panel. Two on the left side and on in the upper right. Then I pulled out the brand new Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink to stamp the words from A Faithful Letter in the background, add some splatters, and colored in the flowers just a bit. I love the combo of the kraft, black and blue. So soft and pretty. Next, I die-cut a smaller rectangle out of the floral panel once the ink was dry. I glued the outer rectangle directly down on the card front and then popped the center one up with foam adhesive. I love the dimension this creates. Such a fun illusion with the stamped image. Before I attached the middle panel, I wrapped some string around it and tied it in a bow. I popped the perfect birthday sentiment up right above the bow as well. Just added the perfect little touch, don’t you think?
The VideoI’ve created a quick video tutorial on how this card was made. Thanks for joining me today. I hope you are inspired by today’s project. If you create something, I’d love to see it. Join us in the Unity Show & Tell Facebook group to share your card and tag me.
