Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time around is ‘Cut It Out’ or let’s see your die cuts or punches.
We are sponsored by Hobby Art Stamps with a gorgeous stamp, Rodney the Reindeer, (see blog for a picture) and also by Di’s Digis with a $12 gift certificate.
I created my own background by repeating several wedding themed sentiments across a 6” square piece of paper on the pc. When I had printed it out I ran it through my die cutting machine with a Spellbinders Embossing folder with hearts and swirls and then swept over the raised area with Dusty Concord DI.
I then sprayed the background with Spray and Sparkle and threw some glitter on top!
The bride and groom die cuts are from Tattered Lace, the Bride die is called Bella and the Groom is called George.
I die cut George from pearl card, and then coloured bits of him, in silver grey, purple to accessorise with Bella, and just skin and hair.
Bella is a much more intricate die so I cut her out three times, one on card, for her bust head and shoulders and and actually twice on pearl paper as the die just wouldn’t cut through the card fully. The first die cut I cut out and then coloured with a purple copic to match George’s tie etc., but once I had assembled the card it didn’t show up enough, so I cut her out again, but this time I coloured the pearl paper first with Snap Dragon Luminarte Silk paint before die cutting.
