My post today is a 2 for 1 card deal. Who can resist a sale, or in this case a treat? I was making a gift card and realized that I had the hard part of a full size card already made. And the rest is what you see below.
I know that my picture taking needs some improvement!! But hopefully you can see that the scalloped Bermuda Bay layer on the gift card is the center opening on the full size card. Now you see why I said I had a 2 for 1 card. I actually had the idea for this as I was getting ready to cut the scalloped square from a scrap piece of card stock. I stopped myself just in time, and went with a full piece of 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 piece. (Although I did go back and use that scrap piece of card stock, because now I needed 2 of the scalloped square pieces!) I then stamped the wheelbarrow of flowers twice on Whisper White Thick card stock and cut them out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits that were a size smaller than the scalloped square.
I colored both wheelbarrows with our amazing Watercolor Pencils but I then used a Blender Pen on one and the Aqua Painter on the other. If you do use the aqua painter on this card stock, please be careful and use minimal water or you can get some pealing of the paper.
For the gift card I simply layered the pieces onto a 6 X 3 piece of Rich Razzleberry that is folded in half. I forgot to punch the hole and attach my Baker’s Twine before I took the picture. I used the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch for the whole. And it will punch threw both pieces at one time.
On the card, I placed the front side in the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and ran the entire piece through the Big Shot. This embossing folder will go through sideways. Lucky Me !! I then closed the card and scored it very well. Due to the embossing folder, it really doesn’t want to close and lay flat. After layering my focal point, I added dimensionals and placed it through the closed card and through the cut out area. I did this first without removing the backing from the dimensionals to make sure it would work. I recommend you doing that as well!! And it did work perfectly, so there you have the finished product.
Even though I have talked/typed a lot, this was pretty quick and easy to do. It could be ramped up some moe with additional layers, more embellishments, etc. The only embellishment I did was to add a Rhinestone to the center of the wheelbarrow’s wheel on each card.
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed my 2 for 1 card. If you have any questions please ask me, I am happy to help.
