How To Guide - Step 1

Using the solid mat die, from the Angelic Frame Die Collection, cut TWO mats, out of the A4 white card. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Score across the top of ONE of the white mats, approx 1 1/2cm down from the top.

Apply red liner tape above the score line.

Set this mat to one side.  

How To Guide - Step 3

Place the Winter Pines Embossing Folder embossed side down, at the bottom. 

Ink up the DEBOSSED side of the folder with the Izink Pigment ink pads, applying plenty of ink. 

Place the white die cut mat in the folder, on the bottom embossed side, and close the inked side down on to the card, before running it through your embossing machine. 

Remove the card to reveal an inked embossed image, as seen here. 


How To Guide - Step 4

Blend the Izink light green pigment ink, around the edges of your embossed mat. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Spray water on to the Confetti White Lace, and Goldmine Paints, and splatter both over your embossed card. 

If possible allow to dry naturally, to give a stronger effect. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Remove the red liner tape from the other white, die cut mat. Line this up, with the embossed die cut mat, then push, and adhere together, thus creating an embossed card blank. 

Set this to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Place the detailed frame die, from the same set, on to the gold mirri card, and run it through your die cutting machine, keeping the leftover card to one side, to die cut the JOY letters later.

NB: Keep all the pieces that come out of the frame, to paper piece back in later. However you will NOT be using the die cut gold frame, so you can put this aside for another project.  

Place the same die on a decorative sheet, you have chosen from the Thirsty Brush Northern Lights paper pad, and run it through your machine. You do NOT need to keep all the bits that fall out, only the die cut frame itself. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere the decorative paper, die cut frame, on to your embossed, shaped card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Paper piece back in the gold mirri die cut elements, that you set aside earlier. You can paper piece some of the elements, or all of them...the choice is yours. 

Set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Place the JOY letter dies on to the gold mirri card set aside earlier, and run it through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Adhere the die cut letters on to your card. 

How To Guide - Step 12

To finish your card, apply the Gossip clear overlay glitter pen randomly over your embossed images, to add a touch of sparkle.
