I’m here today with a new post for the Crafts-U-Love Design Team.
This month, all DT members were sent the same Julie Hickey Designs set – ‘Garden Treasures’ – isn’t is fabulous? When Caz told me that we would be receiving a JH floral set I was really hoping it would be this set! It is so versatile!
I decided to make a CAS ‘hidden sentiment’ card using just one stamp from this set. This week’s Color Throwdown challenge has a fabulous colour combo (orange, brown, rust and yellow) which I felt would be perfect for an Autumn Thank You card.
I masked off part of the card to create a square to stamp the images, chose a stamp and got to work!
Once I had finished, I die cut a ‘Thank You’ sentiment from the centre of my panel. This is always so nerve-wracking – I hate cutting into an image that I’ve created… but I love the effect of a hidden sentiment so I held my breath and cut!
I removed the die cut sentiment and stuck the panel to a card base. I then cut the sentiment from a piece of funky foam and adhered the two die cut sentiments together to create a dimensional sentiment – you could also use a could of layers of card if you don’t have any funky foam. I inserted the sentiment into the space on the base card and voila! A hidden sentiment card!
To finish off my card, I added a few gems – got to have a bit of sparkle of course!
Some other cards I’ve created with this technique –
I’m also entering this card into the current Color Throwdown challenge.
Right! I’m off to see what my teammates have come up with using the same set!
Thanks for stopping by!
