Hello, friends and happy Tuesday!! I hope you’re having a great week!!
I have a mostly tone-on-tone “Thinking of You” card to share with you today that gets a pop of shine and color from holographic cardstock!!
I began by die-cutting the dragonfly wings and body from holographic cardstock with dies from the Lovely Layers: Bugs Honey Cuts. I also die-cut the body three more times from heavyweight white cardstock and adhered them behind the holographic one.
Next, I die-cut the Secret Garden A2 Cover Plate Die from white cardstock. I added a bit of holographic shine by adding Bee Creative Embossing Ink to the cover plate die with a sponge dauber and sprinkling on some Fairy Dust Embossing Powder, then heating it until melted. It was then adhered to a white, top-folding card base with Bee Creative Glue.
The sentiment was created with the Bitty Buzzwords: Bloom Stamp & Honey Cuts. The top layer of “you” was die-cut once from holographic cardstock and three times from heavyweight white cardstock, while the bottom layer was cut twice from heavyweight white cardstock. The layers were stacked and adhered together with Bee Creative Glue. For “Thinking of”, I heat embossed it onto white cardstock with silver embossing powder, then again with the Fairy Dust Embossing Powder to add that holographic shine to it. It was trimmed into a narrow strip and adhered with foam tape, with the dragonfly and “you” being adhered with Bee Creative Glue. I added some Clear Gem Stickers diagonally across the card for even more shine.
I really wish you could see this in person!! The shine is so beautiful!!
Thanks so much for dropping by today!! Have a great week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!!
