Welcome and THANKS for visiting my blog today! I’m featuring this NEW Thanks Cutting Plate die from Taylored Expressions September Release that will be available for purchase this Thursday, Release Day. Love it!
Here’s what I did for this card…I die cut the Thanks Cutting Plate two times out of watercolor paper. I cut the card base from TE Premium Cookie Monster card-stock but cut it short…a lot short! only ⅛ inch past the 4 ¼ inch crease line.
The ⅛ th inch part of the card base I sandwiched between the top of the two Thanks Cutting Plate die cuts, sort of a hinge so to speak. That allowed me to have a see through card front but sturdy enough to stand on it’s own because of the two layers of watercolor paper glued together. Very cool…wish you could see it in real life!
Then I watercolored the whole thing with Zig Clean Color Brush pens and a water brush.
For this card, I did my embedding technique for intricate dies. (pull down under the video tab above to see, Adhering Intricate Dies)
I inked the whole thing after embedding with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the ink blending tool and then pounced on a little Delicata Gold ink pad with a big sponge dauber tool.
Some twine and then adhered to a TE Buttercream card-stock card base.
