Hey there! The spring release for Trinity Stamps went live yesterday. After you’re done here, be sure to head to Instagram and comment on the hop for a chance to win a Trinity Stamps gift certificate! Today though, I wanted to share an up close look at one of the new stand-alone die sets called You’re #1. It’s a super fun shape card with lots of possibilities!
I shared a sneak peek of this earlier in the week that was actually the reverse of the card on the right. When you have a die like this it’s hard to throw that good paper away so I’ve been making two cards each time.
For this card, I die cut the base from a heavy white cardstock and used my bone folder to reinforce the crease line. I found that if you skip this step it likes to try and fold on the stitching line instead. Easy fix. Then I die cut the pieces from red glitter, black and white cardstocks. Then I simply used liquid glue to adhere all the pieces in place on the card front.
I can’t wait to make these in some specific colors for sports lovers in my life! Watch out football season!!! 😉
For this next version, I took out the bow and that little line die cut. This is supposed to be like tying a bow on your finger so you don’t forget something. I pulled out some softer colored cardstock and fun plaid patterned paper for a more girly looking card. Once it was all glued down, I finished it off with some Crafty Love clay heart embellishments and it’s ready for a message to be written on the inside.
I’m totally in love with how this one turned out. In my head it reads “Don’t forget! You’re the best!” Wouldn’t this be great to send to a friend who needs a little encouragement or maybe a thank you?
Depending on the colors of paper and the sentiment you choose there are so many possibilities with this die set.
Another quick reminder that the Instagram hop is still going on so head over there and start hopping for more amazing inspiration and comment for a chance to win.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
