Hello!! It’s Wanda here and I’m very glad to be back on the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Blog sharing another card using the fabulous A Way With Words dies!! Today I’ve combined those dies with the adorable Poppy the Owl die to make a card just perfect for a BFF.
Here’s how I created the card:
- Die cut the words ‘Best’ (#1050 A Way With Words – Best Wishes) and ‘Friends’ (#1052 A Way With Words – Friends) 3 times: Once from Pink and/or Light Pink Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz, once from white cardstock and once from black cardstock, all backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Layer the word pieces so the Shimmer Sheetz is on top, the white cardstock is a highlight to the upper left and the black cardstock is a shadow to the lower right. Leave the release sheet covering the adhesive on the back of the bottom layer till step 4. Set aside.*Reminder: The Metal Adaptor Plate (803) is required for die cutting Shimmer Sheetz. Review Els van de Burgt’s YouTube video HERE if you are new to this technique.
- Cut all pieces of #910 Poppy the Owl from Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink pieces as shown and assemble Poppy. Set aside.
- Cut #1033 Leafy Branch from cardstock, spray with ink, set aside to dry. from cardstock, spray with ink, dry, set aside.
- Cut marbled background paper to 4” x 5 1/4” and ink edges. (Piece shown was from my stash, created using Dylusions Ink Sprays and the shaving cream technique. Alternatively, use purchased paper or another piece of Shimmer Sheetz from the Sampler Pack.) Attach all pieces to marbled rectangle as shown, and then to a white top-fold A2 (4.25” x 5.5”) card base. Add ‘forever’ sticker and draw a box around it with the black Pitt pen.
I hope you like this card and are inspired to make a card for your BFF.
