Just Because Cards

Hello There


Happy Friday, friends, I hope your week went well!

Today I have another card using the Poppy Frame Die from Simon Says Stamp.  This time I used an inlay technique combined with Copic coloring.

I started by using the die twice to cut a two pieces of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  For one of the cuts, rather than letting all of the pieces fall out, I carefully removed the cutting plate covering the back of the cut pieces and then placed a wide strip of Post-It tape over the back to hold all of the pieces together, replacing any small pieces that had fallen out.  For the second cut, I didn’t bother keeping everything together

On the piece that was taped together, I used Copic R11, R21, and R11 to color the petals.  I didn’t take care to avoid the outline of the flower since I planned to use the other die cut for the finished card.

From the other die cut, I removed the background fall out piece and backed it with Post-It tape to temporarily hold it steady while I colored.  I colored with BG11, BG13, BG15, and BG49 to create an ombre effect.

For the sentiment, I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink to stamp a sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set onto a strip of Neenah Solar White which I backed with foam tape.

To assemble the card, I took the clean positive frame cut and the colored background and pieced them together, backing it with surgical paper tape which is thin and sticky enough to hold, but not to tear.  Then I pieced in the pink petals and adhered the sentiment strip.  I backed the entire panel with foam tape and adhered it to an 4bar-sized piece of Neenah Solar White, which I in turn adhered to a card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
