With the New Year comes new resolutions. But since that word never really worked for me in the past, I am going to change it to "goals". So one of my goals for 2015 is to send some of the cards I make to people!! I mean put them in an envelope, address the envelope, put stamps on it, and put it in the mail. You would think, with all the cards I make that would just happen automatically. But it doesn't and I really don't know why. I know, I am bad!!
As you can see from the photo at the top, using this die allowed me to make 7 cards at once!
Step by Step:
Cut 6, 7, 8 or more pieces of different colored cardstock to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8". Center the die on each piece and cut using your die cut machine.
Pop out all of the letters and words using either the Die Pick by Tim Holtz or the Tool N' One by Spellbinders. Both will help immensely!! Trust me!
Then glue each of the pieces of cardstock to a card front. I used Mono Multi glue on some of them and my Xyron machine on the others.
|For some of my cards I glued the colored cardstock to a white card base and for others I used a colored card base.|
As you can see below, I first glue the script birthday into the card fronts. Then I glued the large HAPPY.
Continue until the whole card front has been filled in with all the different colored letters and words. Remove any adhesive residue with the Adhesive Eraser by Xyron. This is probably the best tool ever invented. Click "HERE" to watch a video by Kristina Werner showing how to remove the adhesive and why you need this in your stash of tools.
Below is one of the finished cards with all the words and letters "inlaid" in the different sections. I even glued a crystal for the dot over the "i" in the script birthday.
