Diagonal Split Panel Wedding Card

Diagonal Split Panel Wedding Card

DSC_2032ww

I came across this fun technique that features offset angles and some patterned paper to create an interesting, layered background panel.

Here is a video tutorial on how to do this technique, although I changed mine up a bit by matting my finished panel and changing the angle/measurements of my cuts.  I’ve also seen variations where the solid panels are popped up with foam tape and where the center portion is hand-stamped.

I used Bazzill “Whirlpool” along with black and heavy weight white card stock.  The patterned paper is called “B&W Wedding Words” by the Paper Studio.  I just love the dies from the “Shadow Box Collection – Mr. & Mrs.” set by Creative Expressions!

Here are two more cards I made using this technique:

Embossed Easter Cross

(a blast from the past…)

This CAS card features a stamp called “Easter Cross” by Stampendous.  The image was embossed with gold embossing powder on GKD Ivory card stock. The mat was also embossed in gold (around the edges) before adhering to the back of the front panel. I used a Spellbinders oval die to emboss the frame around the cross.

This card was originally posted in my StampTV gallery May 4, 2014.

Peeking Bunnies Easter Card

(inside: to some Bunny special)

I really liked these dies when I saw them and envisioned the card in my mind that I planned to create with them, and then I had a bit of trouble trying to fit all the actual die cuts on the card front – lol!  Luckily, die cuts are moveable so I played around with the placement until I came up with something that worked.

The textured, purple card stock is called “Elegance” by core’dinations and has glitter on it so adhering the die cuts required glue (and not tape).  You can see how I attached these intricate die cuts HERE.  For this project, I used Art Institute Glitter Designer Glue.

You can see the sparkle a little better here:

I think the “Peeking Bunny Squares” by Frantic Stamper are so cute, and I love the font for “Happy Easter” by Impression Obsession!

Foiled Valentine’s Day Z-Fold Card (and a few variations)

Foiled Valentine’s Day Z-Fold Card (and a few variations)

Z-fold cards display beautifully and are easy to make.  To create an A2 size z-fold card base, simply score an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ panel at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″ and fold like a Z.  Z-fold cards fold flat for mailing, and this one (with these dimensions) fits in an A2 size envvelope.

The Valentine’s Day greeting I used is a digital clip art image I found at clipground.com, and the background pattern (part of a Valentine’s Digital Paper Pack) is from an Etsy shop called  Printkits Designs.  After printing both with my laser printer on white card stock, the panels were foiled with Gina K Designs Red Velvet fancy foil and my  Mini Minc foil applicator.

One of the great things about using digital images is that they can be sized to fit any project.

Here are a few simple variations:
