Every once in a while, I like to take a break from creating layouts and bust out a card or two. I've wanted to use Cheery Lynn Designs' Going Batty die for the longest time, but didn't have any ideas outside of Halloween...that is until now, thanks to Echo Park's Be Mine Collection!
I layered one of the classic nested circle dies and 2 different doilies dies to serve as the back drop for the bats. I used the Large Rectangle Stitcher Plate and the Embossing Pad to emboss the Core'dinations Cardstock card base and then sanded so the pattern and color would shine through.
here's a close up
I created this next card for a friend who's due to have a baby girl any day now! I used this technique for stretching the larger french flair die cut.
There's lots of texture on this card, but I added even more by embossing using the Large Rectangle Pierce Plate.
supplies: patterned paper- Echo Park; cardstock- Bazzill, Core'dinations; ink- clearsnap; stickers- Echo Park, My Little Shoebox; ribbon- offray; buttons; shimmering spray- Creative Imaginations; stickles- Ranger; dies, stitcker plates- Cheery Lynn Designs
I guess I should dedicate this post to my Epic Six...it died on me and went to die cut machine heaven. Now I need to decide if I should get another Epic Six or a different machine. Any advice?
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful week!
