With the recent purchase of a Silhouette Portrait, I have quickly down a rabbit hole of distress inks, embossing, stamps, die cutting, stamping, and the world of greeting card making. And through that, I’ve discovered a vibrant community of crafters and cardmakers.
Rather than continue to just spend money on supplies (although that’s not likely to end anytime soon), I’ll be sharing the things I make through this blog.
The first card I’m sharing is inspired by Lawn Fawn’s Heart Parade die. I created two sets of cut files in the Silhouette Studio software. The first was the welded row of hearts, which I used to create the embossed effect on the card, by cutting it out of the packaging that came with an embossing folder. The second consisted of each heart cut individually out of patterned paper.
I ran the welded hearts through my Cuttlebug over a small piece of white cardstock, using the two B plates and the Cuttlebug shim, and then glued the die cut hearts in the corresponding space in the embossed cardstock. Finally, I glued that to a piece of orange 5 by 7 cardstock, and glued that to my cardbase.
Since I don’t have any stamps, I was going to write out a sentiment using a soft pen and the Silhouette pen holder, but forgot so so this time around the card won’t have a sentiment.
I’m entering the card to the following challenge:
