Keys, Stars and Sprays

Playing with new dies and spray mica paints resulted in this card.

I used Marianne Design Craftables Punch Die: Keys to die-cut the keys that are glued to a sheet of card stock and sprayed with brown, silver and gold metallic sprays. The green sheet that was cut up was die-cut with and Joy! Crafts Die – Bille’s Background Stars and sprayed with green and gold sprays. The back blue sheet was sprayed with blue and silver sprays. The birthday sentiment is die-cut from shiny black paper using the Happy Birthday Stamp and Die Set from Stamps by Chloe.

Festive Foliage and Hearts – Trifold card

I love the sentiment “The holidays are a time to open our hearts” that is at the center of this card.  The card was stamped with the Alte New stamp set Festive Foliage which allows you to stamp a fir tree with two to four colors.

I stamped this card from a piece of heavy white cardstock 5 ½ inches x 11 inches using a stamping platform so that I could position the stamps easily. I used a different green ink for the tree and the heart foliage stamps. The tree is Tranquil Tide, and the heart is Pear Pizzazz. The sentiments were stamped with VersaMark-Watermark ink and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. The red heart is stamped using Real Red ink.

To create the tri-fold base I scored and fold the longest edge at 4 ¼ inches and 2 ½ inches. Once the tree was stamped on the front, I opened the card out flat and using a craft knife cut the heart out of the card front. Next, I refold the card and placed the cutout heat back in place and stamped the heart foliage. I also opened the card front, slipped a scrap piece of paper in and stamped the inside flap with the heart in green as well.  I then put glue on the inside stamped heart section and with the cut-out heart in the tree front, closed the card and adhered the cut-out heart to inside flap. Once the glue had dried, I also stamped the back side of the flap and heat with green foliage stamp. With the inside flap unfold, but the front fold shut I positioned the solid heart stamp to be stamped directly behind the foliage hearts.

To finish the card, I folded the card and taped the front tightly shut to spray some gold mica mist over the front of the card for added interest and glued a small red ribbon to the top of the tree.
