Yesterday I shared with you how I avoid fires in my craft room and today is a continuation of that theme. I love the Sealed Cord & Faux Seal Sentiments so I thought it best to make another card before I lose my mojo! Does that happen to you? I would love to know how you find your mojo. Much to my husband’s dismay, new products are my inspiration. Ok, I may not use them right away……..
But with the onset of 2024 I am committed to using All of my new products. How about you? What are your crafty goals for this year? I thought it might be nice to introduce you to my husband, who puts up with my crafty chaos. He has suddenly decided that he wants to become the next Sanjeev Kapoor. His goal for 2024 is to become the next Indian celebrity chef. He found a video of an Indian truck driver who makes an awesome chicken curry. The first picture is of him diligently trying to recreate this curry. The second picture is the aftermath. I do have to admit, it was delicious…….
I digress, back to cardmaking….
Back to the card! I first cut an A2, top-folding card base. Then I cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel from white card stock. I used the rectangles from Gina K Designs Master Layout 2 Dies to cut a black card base and a panel from Better Press A2 Cotton Card Panels Porcelain.
Time for some letter-pressing. I used the Flower Stems Press Plates from Spellbinders with the Better Press A2 Cotton Card Panels Porcelain inked up the dies. and ran the BetterPress plates through my Platinum 6. I used the Spellbinders Ink. Then I colored the florals with alcohol markers. I’m partial to purple so that’s the color combo for today. I die-cut the florals with the coordinating dies.
I then inked up the Faux Seal Sentiments with black ink and cut it with the circle die. I added some purple watercolor to the sentiment once it was dry and added some Glossy Accents. Set that aside to dry. Using the cotton card panel we cut I letterpressed the Cord plate directly on the panel. I then took the panel to my “splatter” box and splattered a bit of purple watercolor and a bit of gold.
I glued this panel to the black one. Then I decided I needed a purple card base. So using one of the purple alcohol markers I went around the 4.25″ x 5.5″ white panel. Then I glued the splattered panel on top. I decided on a floral arrangement and glued them down. I did use foam tape behind the two large blooms.
Once my sentiment circle was completely dry I glued it down as well. Then the entire panel was glued to the card base. What do you think? I would love to hear from you in the comments, below.
