Hi Roadies! It's Jocelyn on the blog today with a couple of cards. I used new Maya Road dies to make a feminine and a more masculine card. For both of these cards, I used repetition in the die-cuts to show how a single die can have a big impact.
The card for mom has pretty flowers using the Rolled Flower Die. I used narrow craft tweezers to roll the flowers, which worked perfectly for these flowers. They were so easy to make! I die-cut them out of three double-sided papers. I added a Felt Rose, a new "#love" acrylic embellishment, and a Small Vintage Paper Flower.
Below the flower cluster, I layered Roses Vintage Lace Trim and the new notebook die. I turned the vellum notebook die-cut sideways; the scored lines add great texture.
Here's a close-up of the flowers:
For my next card, I was thinking Father's Day, but it would also work for graduation, birthday, or even an all occasion card.
I prefer fairly clean and simple cards for men, but the new glasses die packs a punch! I die-cut the glasses out of four patterned papers and mix-and-matched the lenses and frames. I die-cut four more frames out of a thin chipboard to add dimension underneath.
To finish the card, I added the Lemon Yellow Jute and Twine Cord and a Royal Crown clip. To make the clip red, I pressed both sides of the clip into an embossing ink pad and then heat embossed the clip with red embossing powder. If you try this technique, be sure to not touch the clip for a while after heating it. The Royal Crown clip is perfect for Father's Day or a graduation card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
