I will likely have several posts every few days, with a single post for each card. Our first lessons day 1 and day 2 cover faux effects. My first card has many "layers" but, since they are inlaid to one another the card remains flat, but is full of interest.
I don't really have word dies that lend themselves well to this method. I really had to sit and think and picture how to accomplish what I wanted to create. I probably made it harder on myself than I needed to, but it was fun, and I succeeded in creating the card that was in my head.
Since I chose a darker card base, I had to line it in white for easier message writing inside and that liner piece was perfect to hold all the bits and pieces in place to make this a perfectly flat card. The Hearts and Large Label piece are from Spellbinders. The Always die and sentiment are from Simon Says Stamp. The color spritzes are from Heidi Swap and Luminart. Embossing powder in white from Hero Arts, along with their white Unicorn pigment ink. Card size is 4x4 inches.
Thanks for stopping by, off to make dinner...then it is back to the craft table.
