Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a super cute pair of cards over on the Pink & Main blog! The new release is live and available for purchase so don’t hesitate to head over and treat yourself! There are so absolutely amazing products added to the mix this month!
I couldn’t help myself so I took the same design idea and created two cards to share with you today. It actually started because I pulled out the woodgrain embossing folder and embossed the grain the wrong direction for my original design. I couldn’t let it go to waste so I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make two fun cards to share with you!
Like I said before, I used the new woodgrain embossing folder for my backgrounds. Because these are 6×6 you can take your A2 size cardstock and turn it portrait or landscape for different looks. I ended up with one of each. Then I took a white panel and ink blended distress oxide inks in blueprint sketch and mermaid lagoon. I spritzed the panel with water and die cut the letters from the new Just a Note dies and Big Hugs dies. Then I cut them from white 2 more times each and used EZ Squeeze glue to adhere them together. I die cut the shadow for each from pearlescent vellum and adhered those with tape runner.
Next, I stamped images from the July Stamp and Die of the Month – Just Ducky and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and decided on sentiments to go with each card. This die set comes with these awesome rounded banner dies that fit the sentiments in the set so I was able to die cut them perfectly too!
I adhered the woodgrain backgrounds to white card bases with EZ Squeeze glue. Then I added the ink blended sentiments to those. Next, I added foam squares to the back of the images and sentiment banners and popped those in place.
For finishing touches, I added yellow pearls from the new Rainbow Pearls embellishment wheel to both card designs. Then I came in with glossy accents on the ducky eyes, beaks and feet.
Aren’t these ducks just too cute for words?!? I love them and the different positions they are all in. So many options! The new word dies are an absolute must for any crafty stash! They are versatile and so fun to use! I’m swooning over the font too!!! It’s just perfect!
