Design Team Cards
Time certainly does fly when you are having fun, and it’s already three weeks since my last post for The Dragon’s Den blog. Today a new post went live on the blog with a couple of cards I’d made showcasing another great digi-stamp. You can see the post – Here!
Stamping Dragon Designs Item:
Holly’s New Bed digital stamp
- 300gsm, Super Smooth white cardstock
- ProMarkers – for card 1: Cool Grey 1, 2, Pink Carnation, Yellow, Powder Blue; for card 2: Cool Grey 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Black, Pink Carnation.
- Trellis, trellis waste, frame and oval from Ornamental Cuts Multibuy
- A4 Blue Cardstock
- A4 sheet of White Hammered Cardstock
- Pink cardstock
- Sticky Back Gems
- Black patterened background papers and flower – from a Papermania Capsule Collection
- Black glitter ribbon
- 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape
- 2mm deep, double sided, shaker tape
- Finger-lift Tape
- Glue Gel
For card 1: I printed the digi-stamp out and coloured it in. I took a frame used it as a template to draw around the image. I then cut out the oval just inside the drawn line. I went round the oval panel with one of the ProMarkers I’d used on the digi-stamp, flicking the colour from the outside towards the inside to give a broken ege, rather than a solid line of colour. I scored and folded the blue cardstock, then attached a panel of the trellis. The digi-stamp panel was attached directly to the front of this, and the frame attached to the top using shaker tape. I made up the flowers (you can see how in my Pictorial Guide “Making Paper Flowers – 07“) and coloured their edge and the edge of the oval panel using the same ProMarker as previously. Glue gel was used to attach these to the card front.
For card 2: The digi-stamp on this card was printed at the same size as the previous card, and again coloured in using my ProMarkers. This was then cut out using a circle scissors before I went round the edge with the lightest grey colour. The hammered card was turned into a square card approximately 15cm in size. I cut panels of the black patterned cardstock, matted one of them onto pink cardstock and then trimmed it to a small border. I used fingerlift tape to attach the panels to the card, the foam tape to attach the circular panel and glue gel for the flower and bow, before finishing with the sticky back gems.
