Hello there! Lisa here with you today to share a fun retro slimline card featuring the new Misshapen Stitched Circle Dies. This is a really cool set of dies, and as soon as I saw them, I thought it would be fun to embrace the misshapenness (is that even a word?!) and create a card with a funky vibe.
So I picked out a palette of colours from my stash of cardstock that I thought would play well together and set about cutting them with the dies. You get eight dies to play with and I used them all for this card. The good thing is that I also have plenty left over for another card.
Next I cut a 3.25" x 8.25" Neenah Solar White 80lb panel using a rectangle die from the Slim Line Die Cutting System set and started arranging the circles across the card. It took me a while to settle on a final design but once I had, I then just adhered them down using wet adhesive and trimmed off the excess from the sides. This panel was then matted onto some black cardstock and then onto a side folding slimline note card.
To finish the card I took the Thank You sentiment stamp and stamped it onto black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I love how this pops against the other colours not only because it is black and white, but also because it is a large sentiment. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was then trimmed to size and added onto my panel using foam tape.
Aren't the misshapen circles fun? Lots of possibilities for these as you can use them with images and on their own. Cut out of Paper Glitz panels they would be great fun!
Don't forget that you can catch Nicole this evening (16th Feb) at 6.00 PM CT as she is doing a live over on the Picket Fence Community Facebook page. See you next time and happy crafting!
