Let’s Laugh Day IG Hop & Card Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I am participating in a fun Instagram Hop. The theme of the hop is “Let’s Laugh”. So head over to Instagramhttp://shrsl.com/4ga1r (after checking out my card tutorial) to see all of the fabulous creations from some excellent card makers. Everyone needs a chuckle. It is good medicine for the soul. Now I have to warn you, the cards today contain a naughty word. However, my cards are usually created with a person in mind. These sentiments are perfect for the recipients. So let’s get started! How about a product list first!

Card 1

Let’s start off by getting the card base and front panel cut. I am using an A2 top folding card base. I’ve also cut another panel at 4 1/4“ x 5 1/2“. I am embossing this panel with the Gina K Design Swiss Dot embossing folder.

Once the panel is embossed, adhere it with liquid glue to your card base. Now we can start on the focal point of the card.

I am using the new Hand Torn Rectangle Dies from LDRS Creative. This die set is perfect for A2 or 5 x 7 cards and contains 3 dies. I used the second largest one and cut a piece of heavy card stock.

I placed the card panel onto a sticky mat and using the Gina, Kay Design Flower Garden stencil I ink blended it with the colors mentioned above. I then partially die, cut this panel because I want to place my sentiment underneath.

I used a piece of scrap white card stock to stamp my sentiment in Tangierine Dream Ink from LDRS Creative. I covered the ink with clear, embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the sentiment down and glued it underneath the two halves of the stenciled panels.

Next, using the doodle flower dies I cut six of a smaller flower from white card stock. I ink blended three with Pink Tutu ink. With the remaining three white flowers, I offset them and glued them on top of the pink with liquid glue. I grabbed some of my Nuvo drops and placed a bit in the center of each flower. You could also use an enamel dot or marker for your center.

I added foam squares to the back of each flowers and positioned them on my stenciled panel. I added foam tape to the back of the panel and added it to the card based

Now onto card two…..

For card two I am also using an A2 top folding card base. I used the Hand, Torn Rectangle Dies again for one of my panels.

I inked the edges of this panel with Midnight Ink from Concord & 9th. I cut another panel approximately 4“ x 5“, and using the midnight Inc., blueberry, Inc., and Brutus Monroe aqua pigment in Gilded I splattered all over the panel.

Using a coverplate die, I cut two panels, one from white and one from a gold card stock. I used an older, retired cover plate from LDRS Creative. This cover plate is no longer available but I am sure that you have one in your stash that will work in the similar manner. I have linked another above in the product list.

I removed a few of the inner pieces and inked them with the Midnight and Blueberry C9 inks. I also splattered them with more of the gilded aqua pigment. I trimmed the panel down and rounded the corners. This panel was glued directly to the hand torn die-cut panel.

I stamped my sentiment in the Midnight Ink, added clear embossing powder and heat set. I fussy cut around the edges of this sentiment.

Once I figured out the placement of the cover plate die and the bits and pieces I had inked, I trimmed the diecut down, and glued it to the splattered background with liquid glue. The inner bits, I had inked were adhered with liquid glue as well. I added foam tape to the back of my sentiment and placed this on top.

The entire deckled panel was adhered with liquid glue to the card base. Card number two is done.
