I went into my craft room to make a card to share with you today and decided I should showcase a few of the new items from the upcoming catalog as well as the new in-colors. I also decided I would just make a card front instead of a whole card. With the card front, I may choose to add it to a card in the future or I can just use it as an example. So let's get started shall we.
Okay so I forgot to rotate the photo prior to uploading it to my blog. Don't know why I cannot seem to remember to do this. Oh well I can still talk you through my card. Just pretend it is vertical. Since I made just a card front, I started with a piece of Basic Black cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Next I cut a piece of Whisper White at 4" x 5 1/4". I took this piece and ran it through my big shot using the new Modern Mosaic impression folder. I attached the piece to the black with runner adhesive.
Next, I grabbed a half piece of each of the new in-colors: Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana. I used the new mosaic punch and punched 2 out of each color. I then randomly attached them to the card using runner adhesive. As you can see from the photo, I used the side of the white where the mosaic is depressed and not raised. That way my punched pieces would fit and look really nice. I added crystal effects to these added on mosaic pieces and left them to dry. Once dry, I attached a rhinestone to the top and bottom points of the punched shapes.
My greeting is from a new hostess set called Sweetly Framed. I stamped the frame, saying, and hearts using Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock and cut it out using my scissors. I then took a scrap of black and used one of the frames from the Apothecary Accents framelits set to cut out the background for the white piece. I added rhinestones to this and attached it to the card using dimensionals.
Well that's all for today. I will return tomorrow with another card to share with you. Thanks for dropping by today. See you all later!!
