Hello SN friends,
I’ve got some masculine inspiration for you today using some Therm-o-web Deco Foil.
I die-cut the start from some Toner Paper so I could add foil to the top using a laminator machine.
The stars were cut again out of some black cardstock so I could use the leftover/negative piece leftover. I stamped the panel with a background stamp before backing it with blue cardstock. I glued the foiled stars back into their spots and then glue the sentiment in the bottom right.
The foiled stars are not perfectly covered in foil, I like that somewhat distressed look.
I hope this inspired to a little today, thank you for stopping by the SN blog.
If you have any questions please let me know in your comment.
Hello Nerdy friends!
I hope you all are doing well, and getting ready to enjoy the upcoming holidays.
Trust me December is a month full of celebrations in our household, not only do we have Christmas, and New Year’s, but also four birthdays in between. With all the time being used on preparation for the holidays, I sometimes leave the birthday cards to the last minute. So i thought I will share with you a quick card that i made last week for my soccer-niece.
- My favorite thing to use (when making quick cards) is my Silhouette cameo. For this card, i used one of the Silhouette files to create the cut out of this 5×5 in card on Grapefruit color card stock.
- While the machine was cutting the image, I pulled glitter paper from my stash and cut a 5×5 in square. I also cut some smooth white card stock to create the base of the card ( I made sure the card front could fit to the 5×5 in cut out.
- I lined up the two pieces of paper, and punched two parallel holes along the upper side of the square. Then using foam dots, I attached the cut-out to the glitter paper ( i like the cut out shadow that this space creates on the glitter paper).
- A small piece of ribbon, about 10-12 in, was thread through the holes punched on the card front, and tied to create a bow at the top of the card.
- Before finishing the card, I used my We R Memory keepers envelope and bow puncher to create a envelope for the card.
- After making sure the card fit in the envelope, I simply glued a small wood veneer word (this serves as my card’s sentiment) onto the bottom corner of the card front. Here is the finished card:
The process of creating this card took very little time, and I love the simplicity of the card. My little niece loved the card, too. So if you are pressed for time, using a die cutting machine can help you create cards in no time.
As always let me know if you have any questions about how this came together.
See you all soon!
