Hi, it’s Christina. Creating a card with simple shapes can be a real eye catcher and for mine, I used the Diamond Shapes in the Tumbling Block Quilt Etched Dies from the Quilt It Collection by Lene Lok. Combine it with some pretty floral papers and you have a stunning card.
Let’s get started. Follow the instructions to get the same results as me 🙂
With A2 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies Die #7 (the smallest size die is #1) and Platinum Machine, cut two pieces in white card and join together to create the base
With A2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies Die #7, cut another layer in pink
With A2 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies Die #6, cut another white layer
With low tack tape, secure Stitched Borders Etched Dies all five Border Dies side by side and emboss with a piece of white cardstock.
Cut Tumbling Blocks Quilt Etched Dies from the floral patterned paper as many as you would like for your card. Then add foam pads to the back of the shapes.
Starting in the centre of the white embossed panel, add the diamonds to cover the front
Trim off the excess on edges of the card and then add the panel onto the pink layer. Then add the layered panel onto the base card with foam tape for dimension.
With black cardstock, cut Die D-Lites™ Love You Etched Dies YOU part of the die several times and stack together for strength and dimension. Stamp an appropriate sentiment onto black card and emboss with white powder, add foam pads to the back and trim as needed. Add both to the card front as you would like them and dress with the enamel dots.
There you have a quick and easy card that could be for any occasion! For more inspiration please visit my blog at Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls
