Greeting card for Cut At Home
Hope you all are having a great day today! I'm sharing a birthday card using Heartfelt Creations Clear Cardstock from Cut At Home!
I love this unique look of the clear cardstock. This is much thicker then the transparencies you can purchase from an office supply store...therefore they make great card-bases!
This cardstock comes in 8.5" x 11", or 12"x12".
I first cut my cardstock to 11" x 4 1/4". Then using my Martha Stewart Scor-board, I scored it on the 11" side at 5 1/5". This gives me a standard A2 sized card at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
I then ran the front of my card base through an embossing folder, using my Sizzix Big Shot Machine.
Look what great results you get:
I used the Spellbinders Celebra'tios Pierced Rectangles Die, using the largest, and second largest die from the set. From the Spellbinders Celebra'tions Assorted Solids 12x12 Papers I cut two frames from the blue, and two white frames. These will sandwich in between my clear cardstock. I've added these to my card base using Angel Craft Tape (hint: hold them in place with a little tape).
I also added the pierced die from the collection to give some great detail to my frame:
Using some balloons I cut from the Cameo, I cut out four sets. You want to sandwich them between the clear cardstock, therefore you avoid being able to see the adhesive on the back. This also gives you a place to write your sentiment on the inside of your card.
I've added a frame to the front of my card, but first tucked in two balloons to the front as well.
Then tucked two behind it, along with another frame:
Here's a photo showing where I can now add my sentiment:
For embellishment on my card:
I added a white pen line around the edge of my card. I've also added the word "Happy Birthday" using a Spellbinders D-Lites Sentiment 3 die. I ran my tiny yellow balloon through the same dots embossing folder, then tied a little Baker's Twine to my balloons. I finished it off with a little Wink Of Stella Shimmer & a few enamel dots.
For the back of my card, I've added a 'Handmade" stamp:
