I am taking the Online Card Class Spring Card Camp and everyday we get a new video lesson in our email mailbox. One of my favorite days so far was Day 14 with Laura Bassen and these cards were inspired by her ideas with alphabet dies. I loved how she layered alphabet dies overlapping and stenciled on different colors and I did that with HUGS using dies from Kat Scrappiness. She also suggested stenciling around the edge of the card front with the same lighter colors used on the letters and I did that with an older Memory Box stencil. I love how this card turned out! "Sending" is a stamp from Stampendous and the "Random Act of Cardness" is a perfect stamp sentiment for these days from Technique Tuesday.
Laura also suggested "gold tipping" on our alphabet dies and I tried it on this card. I die cut YOU from Kat Scrappiness out of a white card front and half of the letters out of a sparkly gold and glued them together. I put them back in their negative space and embossed it all with a new gorgeous 3D embossing folder from Memory Box. I added a little green to highlight the embossing and raised the letters up on foam before attaching them back for the eclipse look. "Thinking of" is from a die set from Spellbinders.
