Have you seen the hop happening over on Instagram today? It’s a Collab between Wow Embossing and Picket Fence Studios, and there’s prizes to be won, so hop on over and check it out!
I ended up making two cards for this hop, as my off-cut from the first was so pretty! For my first card, I used the Picket Fence Studio Jolly Good Rainbow dies to create a shaped card. I used the outer die on an A2 card blank, making sure to hang the die over the edge slightly on the folded side, thereby creating my shaped card.
I then die cut all of the rainbow details from white card, and pressed them into some Wow Embossing ink. I covered them in four gorgeous pastel shades – Dappled Pink, Sunflower, Soft Aqua and Grape Fizz – and set with my heat tool. I then adhered them to the front of the card panel with liquid glue.
To finish, I used the A Little Note word die. I cut the sentiment from white card and again covered it embossing ink, and applied the new Polished Silver embossing powder, which is SUPER shiny, I love it! I die cut two more, and stacked them together for some sturdy dimension. I then die cut the shadow from adhesive vellum, added the sentiment, and popped it on the front of my card.
And I didn’t stop there!! The card I’d used to cut out the rainbow details looked so pretty, it just needed to be turned into a shaker! So, I glued some acetate to the reverse of the panel. Then, I chose some ink colours similar to the embossing powders I’d used, which were Pink Lemonade, Buttercup, Sea Glass and Lilac from Concord and 9th. I ink blended them on to a white panel of card, then sprinkled some clear sequins over the panel. I added foam tape around the edges, and placed the white rainbow panel over the top to seal them in and create the shaker.
To finish my second card, I die cut the Slimline Oversized Hello word die three times from black card, stacked them together, then heat embossed the sentiment with clear gloss embossing powder. Love that shine!
I really enjoyed making these cards and I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. Don’t forget to check out the blog for your chance to win!
