Continuing from the last post, I had cut the water colour panels out for those thank you cards and I was left with a frame. I didn’t want the frames to go to waste so I decided to use them for these cards.
I die cut my banners out, as well as the prayers and totally fabulous text. You don’t necessarily need a banner die to do this. You can also just cut a fish tail into a strip of paper by making a small cut in the centre then making 2 diagonal cuts from the corners that meet at the centre.
The prayers stamp set is a great one to have. It’s a Hero Arts set that comes with the prayers word stamp and sentiments, as well as heart stamps that come in a variety of sizes. It also comes with a coordinating prayers word die. Twenty five percent of the profits from this set go to the “Lasting Hearts” Fundraiser and Card Drive. It’s a charity for mothers who have lost a child to miscarriage. For more information, please see here.
I kind of went a tangent there, back to how I made these cards. The prayers word I die cut 3 times and adhered them together so it would be thicker and add a bit of dimension to the card. I then heat embossed the “And hugs coming your way” sentiment on the blue card and the “Hey beautiful”on the banner or the orange card using liquid platinum by Ranger. I took 3M foam adhesive and adhered my frames, flowers and banners in place to create dimension and just used Tombow Mono Multi glue (it’s liquid glue but you can use whatever you have) to adhere the prayers word. I adhered the sequins on the hey beautiful and totally fabulous card with the same liquid glue then mounted the card fronts onto the card bases using a tape runner adhesive.

That’s all from me for now, hope you guys have a great day!
