I am a member of Live Love Cards where for only $2.50 a month, I am sent at least two videos a week with new techniques and ideas. I also have access to hundreds of previously posted videos with more great ideas. I figure even if I only get one new idea a month, for that price, how can we go wrong? This was a totally new idea from Darlene's recent series of making card with common household items. Guess what we used? Toilet paper! Basically, to make this card I layered thin inexpensive toilet paper (I used 12 layers), inked up an embossing folder (by Tim Holtz) with water based ink (I found Memento and Distress Inks worked the best), spritzed both sides of the tp with water, placed it in the inked embossing folder and ran it through my die cut machine. Just look at the wonderful colored texture that results from following these easy steps:
Love it! I let the piece dry for a little while, then finished drying it with my heat gun. I die cut a stitched border out of white cardstock with my Lil' Inker stitched rectangle dies, and added a die cut sympathy sentiment using a new die from Dee's Distinctively.
