Hello, Gaylynn here. Adding shimmer with heat embossing makes this potted plant shape card shine. Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing one way to make a handmade shape card with a garden theme.
This card was hand trimmed with scissors to get the potted plant shape. It stands up like a regular greeting card.
Sentiment: Best wishes.
Here are helpful tips for making this potted plant shape card. To begin, stamp and heat emboss the background and the sentiment. Also, stamp, color and heat emboss the flower. I suggest that if you want to use Copic markers for color, stamp first with Copic friendly ink, color and then heat emboss, using a stamp positioner. Next, fussy cut (cut out) the flower, the gold glitter trim and the sentiment. Then, trim the bottom sides of the pot and the card base to make the shape. Finally, assemble the card layers over the shape card base, to finish.
Here is another look.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
