Let’s cut the card panels first! I cut a top folding A2 card base. I then used the smallest A2 Double Stitched Frame and cut a panel from the watercolor paper. I cut a black frame with my paper trimmer 1/4″ larger than the stitched panel. For the honeycomb panel I used the retired 6×6 One Fine Day Paper Pad. I cut this to 4.25″ x 5.5″.
Using the new Tutti Frutti Impress-ion Dies and the Better Press plates I placed the die in different locations, and using Raven Hybrid Ink, I ran it through my die-cutting machine 4 separate times. Make sure you tape your double-stitched panel to the Better Press plate and align your Impress-ion die each time. I also used it a fifth time on another piece of watercolor paper. I water colored the single image and die-cut it with the coordinating die.
Let’s talk about the sentiment. Previously I had hot foiled the sentiment “We didn’t realize we were making memories. We just thought we were having fun.” I had the negative foil left over. I added some double-sided adhesive to the negative and added it to a small piece of smooth card stock. I then trimmed it down to a square approximately 2″ x 2″.
Now let’s assemble. Glue the patterned paper to the card base. Glue the Letter Pressed panel to your black panel. Add some foam tape to the back and add to the card base. Determine the location for your main focal point die-cut. Add some foam tape to the die-cut and align it to your Impress-ion panel. So, with the Impress-ion Dies you can do so many things. Today we letter-pressed with the dies for a background, we created a letter pressed focal point and colored it and we hot foiled one of the Love & Friendship Impress-ion dies! I love the versatility you get from one product, and these are beautiful dies perfect for all your occasion cards. Thanks for stopping by today.
