Neat & Tangled May Release - Day 4 - Giveaways
Hey folks, today's the last day of release reveals, The entire release will be available in the store tomorrow morning at 8 AM EST. Today I'm showing off a new cover plate which is only kind of a new design. It's really a modification of my Succulent Journaling Card die. Danielle asked me to convert it to a larger cover plate design and I was happy to oblige. Although I designed this set as a succulent, it really works as a floral as well.
For the first card, I cut the cover plate from four patterned papers as well as white cardstock and then it was basic inlay. The sentiment is from the Paper Cut Flowers set and is stamped on one of the skinny tags from Classic Tag 2.
Since I had so many extra frames/pieces, I thought I would put together another card with my left overs. Here I left portions of the succulents empty, and inlaid just the background. It's a much more delicate look.
The sentiment is from the original Succulent Journaling Card stamp set and utilizes two of the little banners from the Scalloped die set.
Finally, a cardstock only card. This is something I wanted to do with the original smaller die, but figured the pieces were just too small for it.
Here I chose four shades of green cardstock for my succulents, running each through my die cut machine. I then cut the cover plate from white cardstock twice. I use the first as kind of the base, leaving the pieces intact in the webbing of the die, and then adhered a second and third layer to each piece, the second being white cardstock and the third being the colored cardstock.
Once that was done, still using the original webbing as a guide, the pieces were adhered to a white panel. This was a little tricky as I would adhere a few, then rip away the webbing until I was done.
The sentiment is from my Maple Leaves Journaling Card set.
