Cracked Glass Technique Card

11_18 005 copy

I was inspired by a card I saw using this stamp set and cracked glass technique. For my card, I used Very Vanilla card stock and the Leaves Awash Jumbo Wheel with Chocolate Chip ink. Then, I colored in the leaves with the Aquapainter and various colors of Classic ink pads.

Next, I followed the directions for the cracked glass technique and covered the entire surface of the card stock with Versamark and Glassy Glaze. I heat embossed the Glassy Glaze and repeated the steps 2 more times. As per the directions, I put the paper in the freezer and then cracked it in various places.

After that, I ran the card stock through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die. Please make sure your layers of glassy glaze are “dry” or “frozen” enough or bits of it will get stuck in your Top Note die!

To finish off the card, I added Circle Rhinestone Brads with the cropadile and mounted the very vanilla top note to the base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Note of Thanks Mini Note Kit. I colored in part of the image with my Dusty Durango Marker and stamped it on Very Vanilla, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch, sponged some Creamy Caramel ink on top, then mounted it on a Chocolate Chip Scallop Oval Punch, attached with dimensionals.

Crimped Slide Out Pocket Card Save the Date

This is a fun Save the Date idea for a fall wedding. The crimped kraft card stock reminds me of the coffee sleeves you get at Starbucks!

Using the same technique for my slide out pocket gift card, I modified the design buy making the outer pocket shorter (4 1/2″ x 11″) scored at 6 3/4″ and 2 1/2″. After scoring, I ran the kraft card stock through the crimper, then adhered it with sticky strip. (See my video tutorial for more specific information.)

The window was made using the Modern Label Punch. Then, using the Leaves Awash Jumbo Wheel and chocolate chip ink, I rolled the leaves across the front of the card.

For a monogrammed look, I stamped the “M” from Lovely Letters alphabet in chocolate chip craft ink on very vanilla card stock and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then, I punched out the image with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and layered it with dusty durango punched with the Scallop Circle Punch. That is attached to the pocket card with a dimensional.

For the insert, I took a piece of dusty durango and cut it to 4″ x 4 1/4″. That is layered with very vanilla trimmed to 3 3/4″ x 4″. I stamped “save the date” from Introducing in chocolate chip craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. At the top of the insert, I added a 3/4″ chocolate chip circle and then used my cropadile to set a jumbo eyelet. Some hemp twine knotted through the eyelet makes a nice pull.

Fall Wedding Save the Date Card

IMG_1228 copy

My brother in law and his fiancee are getting married next year in October and I thought I might make a few samples of save the date cards and possible wedding invitations to give them ideas.

This is just a card front, more mustard base layered with chocolate chip textured card stock and very vanilla, which I stamped using the Jumbo Wheel Leaves Awash in Chocolate chip ink. Then, I colored in the leaves using my Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons and Aquapainter just to blend a bit.

On top, I stamped a piece of vellum with the “Save the Date” stamp from Please Come in chocolate chip craft ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Along the top and bottom border, I paper pierced the vellum and adhered it to the base with mini glue dots.

To finish the card, I tied some Hemp Twine around the top and added a Scallop Oval in Dusty Durango layered with a Very Vanilla Large Oval. I stamped “save the date” in dusty durango ink and sponged some creamy caramel ink over top.
