Hello there, today I´d like to share a set of easy to make misted background, die cut cards with you. They are also up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I really like to use color when crafting and spray inks are so much fun. Therefore I wanted to share this simple and easy card making idea with you!
This is how I created the cards:
1. Take a cardboard box (to protect your working area!) and place a piece of white carstock into the box. Very randomly spray areas of the white cardstock with purple and then green spray ink (you can naturally choose any other color combination too). Dry with a heat tool.
2. Take the dry misted cardstock piece and place three die cut dies onto it and run thru your die cutting machine.
3. Remove the die cut parts – save them, as you can use them on another card – and use the background. Adhere onto a white card base.
4. Take another piece of white cardstock and die cut a sentiment/word at least three times. Adhere the die cut words on top of each other and then onto the card.
5. Apply Glossy Accents on top of the word and carefully sprinkle Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the wet areas. You can simply dab off the loose glitter later, since it will only stick to areas where the wet Glossy Accents is. Let dry properly.
6. Finally take some white texture spray ink and splatter around the card for a fun detail. Let dry.
Basically, using similar ideas, but replacing the background with a dry embossed white background piece and misting the die cut word you can create a nice card with the leftover pieces and nothing goes to waste. Here is a little start-to-finish video to give you a better idea of the single steps. Hope you like it!
