Hi everyone. It’s a very exciting week with Tonic Studios launching new layering dies on Create and Craft today, Thursday 19th March as a One Day Wonder event and three gorgeous new strip dies….something a little different in this bundle!
For my first projects, I have used the Star Layering Die Set.
Star Layered Card….
I cut six 6” x 6” squares of coloured card and one 6 1/2” square. Starting with the largest star die, I placed it into the centre of the square to create an aperture. Using this first cut piece as a guide to centre the next size down, I continued to cut each of the smaller squares. Then I glued these layers together and then cut the smallest star into the 6 1/2” piece of card and glued all pieces to card blank.
To finish the card I cut a sentiment out and the word ‘son’, some extra small stars and added Crystal drops.
Daughter Star Card….
I wanted to create a card for a teenage (or inbetweenager!) and thought the stars would be great for this. I used the stars that were cut from the first project and ran them through various embossing folders. No waste!
I started with a 7” x 7” card blank. I then stamped a piece of red card cut at 6 1/2” x 6 1/2” and added to card front. The image is from Indigoblu’s new range of stamps designed by Kay Halliwell-Sutton which was coloured using alcohol pens.
The stars were attached across front of card and the word ‘daughter’ was cut twice and offset to give shadow effect.. I used 3D foam to adhere the word and the stamped image. To finish I added some pearls.
