When I ran a recent class about cards that flip and pop, I knew I had to share a card using the new Labels Thinlit die. I mean, the fact that one run through the Big Shot and you have the card almost done, got to love the ease of that.
Since the thinlit die comes with a bunch of extra shape dies, I wanted to see what I could come up with that mostly uses those extra shapes. Have you seen all the options?
So, this is what we made:
I decided to try to experiment – and this is a little hard to see in the picture – but with the main label shape, we actually cut out a label in Coastal Cabana and then cut out a second label shape in So Saffron, but this time, we placed the “hi” die inside the label die so that it would cut out the “hi” leaving a hole in the shape of the word (does that make sense? ) Then we glued the labels together so the Coastal Cabana peeked through!
To decorate the rest of the card, we added a bit of Washi tape to the front of the card and then stamped an image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. We stamped the inside, just like the card from last month’s newsletter
(if you missed it, you can sign up here and I’ll get you a copy of the past newseltter)
So this is an idea to make a card using just a few supplies…. now I’m off to try out a few more ideas that incorporate more items from your craft room to step up the card even more.
Untill then, happy stamping!
