Here comes my Birthday Card for
Yes we are celebrating our three years birthday, and ofcourse with a suitable theme;)
My card is again made with the lovely dies from Go Kreate.
For the card I first fold a 15x30 cm paper in half. Then I lay the largest of the three dies on the paper. But where the paper fold is, I lay the die just a little over the paper. This way it won't cut the fold.
I then have a 15x15 cm bazzill (vanilla), and a 15x15 cm pattern paper (here Pion Design). I cut both with the largest die. I use Sizzix Big Shot, but you can of course use Cuttlebug. (The dies are just as DooHickeys or Spellbinders.)
I then ink both paper edges with Walnut Stain (Distress Ink pad), fasten them together with a small tape bit. Then I sew around the edges with my sewing machine. That way I don't have to sew on the actually card base.
The image Tilda with Balloon from the Magnolia-You are so Special 2011 Collection, is colored with Distress Ink, reinkers.
On Tuesday evening I will show you a card where I have colored with the Distress Markers. I have bought a few of them, and it was fun to try. I use them almost like the Distress reinkers: I lay the colors around the edges of the image in small parts, and I blend out the colors with my paint brush (00 and 0).
It worked fine on my hot pressed The Langton 300g paper. Ok will tell you more on Tuesday:)
