CARD DETAILS

Often times when I want to make several identical cards I usually make one and, if I’m happy with the one I made, I make the rest. This is exactly the case with the card idea I am sharing today. I love to create in this way because it allows me to be sure the cards I’m making will turn out the way I like, this also allows me to step up the design if I want to and make slight changes to it if needed.

I started working on my cards by creating 4 ¼ x 5 ½” white cardstock panels out of Neenah 110 LB Solar White cardstock. I used my Spellbinders circle dies and die-cut openings in each. Next, I used stencils from Simon Says Stamp and added embossed details to each of my panels.

Not a lot of people know this, but you can easily emboss with any stencil. The Simon Says Stamp stencils work great for dry embossing because they are nice and thick; the tricker the stencil is, the deeper and more visible the embossed impression is going to be.

To dry emboss with a stencil you’ll need to have a die cutting machine, any die cutting machine will do, and you’ll also need to use a tan embossing mat from Spellbinders. If you have a die cutting machine from another manufacturer you can get this mat separately and dry emboss in your machine, just make sure to check the machine instructions manual to know what sandwich you need to use so that you don’t break it.

I used Medium Dots, Large Dots as well as the Heart Mandala stencils (watch my video to see other dry embossed stencil designs). Next, I stamped and colored the bunny and carrot using Copic markers. I used W5, W3 and W1 markers to add shading and used YR00 to color the inside of the bunny’s ear. For my carrot I used YR04 and YR07 as well as YG03 and YG17 markers. I cut images out using scissors; they weren’t hard to cut out at all.

Next, I heat embossed a Tiny Dots & Hearts background in white embossing powder onto Simon’s Sea Glass cardstock. I adhered this panel onto an A2 card base and foam mounted my dry embossed panel on top. I foam mounted the bunny and added a Hello Spring sentiment. It comes from the Spring Seeds stamp set.

For the tail of my bunny I used little pom pom that came with the March 2018 kit from Simon – the kit is sold out, but you can get those pom poms separately, these are from Darice and they come in different sizes, too. I cut about a third of the pom pom off to make it less dimensional and adhered onto my bunny using glue. Finally, I embellished my card using new Jewel embellishments from Pretty Pink Posh in color Aquamarine.

Have fun stamping!
