I made the background by using my blending tool and my Distress Oxide Inks (colours: Iced Spruce and Peacock Feathers). With a clean paintbrush and some water, I painted some circles to create a Bokeh effect. After it had dried, I took the letter dies Quinn’s ABCs by Lawn Fawn, spelled the word “holidays” on the card and ran the whole panel through my die-cutting machine. I made sure that all insert pieces were saved.
I stamped one of the “Happy” sentiments from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy above the die-cut “holidays” with Versamark ink, poured Lawn Fawn Silver embossing powder over it and heat embossed it with my heat tool. I adhered the panel onto a white cardbase.
I die-cut the word “holidays” from regular white cardstock about four or five times and stacked the resepctive letters on top of each other – this way I can create some dimension for the letters. On the very top of each letter, I put the letter that was die-cut from the panel.
I nested the stacked letters with liquid glue into the corresponding openings of the panel. The insert pieces were carefully adhered using a glue pen.
This card is actually quite simple to make, yet looks so elaborate and very elegant.
I hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!
