One Card Design 2 Ways – Sending You Strength Card

Hello everyone, this is Yana Smakula and thank you for joining me! Today I’d like to share a photo tutorial featuring one card design 2 ways. By changing up the papers and colors you can easily stretch a card design and get a completely different look.

Here’s a look at the green/copper card:

This card was published in the Die-cutting Essentials Magazine Issue 25 along with a few other cards done in a similar style – check it out for more inspiration.

Instead of filming a video for this project, I put together a simple photo tutorial describing every step of the cardmaking process. Also, follow my written instructions below for more info:

Instructions:

Begin by creating a 5×7” landscape top folding card base out of white cardstock. I used thick 110 Neenah Solar White paper for this. Die-cut panels out of dark green cardstock and patterned paper using dies from 5×7 Matting Basics A and B sets. Adhere the two together. Use foam adhesive to adhere onto the card base (I used a solid layer of fun foam to make my card sturdier).

Die-cut a border by using dies from the Graceful Brackets set out of copper glitter and white pearlescent cardstock. Since the card is wider than the bracket border itself you’ll need to elongate the border by continuing the cut on left and right sides. Adhere copper glitter border cut onto pearlescent border and both card base.

Die-cut main element using dies from the Curled Grace Oval set out of copper glitter and White pearlescent cardstock (use Outer Border and Inlaid Curls dies). Adhere copper glitter die cut onto pearlescent die cut and offset slightly. Foam mount onto the card.
