Hi Crafty Friends! It’s April and we are back with another 3D Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop!
Check out the sneak peek of our projects in this month’s PDF! I can’t show you the entire project – you’ll have to get the PDF in order to see it!
My coordinating project this month is a fun card using the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be part of an early release of a FULL 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Suite. You guys – this suite is GORGEOUS!! This suite will be released on April 1st – that’s TWO months before the new catalog is available!
Have you seen the new Scrappy Strip Technique that is sweeping the crafting nation? If not, you should definitely google it. Bruno Bertucci posted a video about it and it’s the new “it” technique and SO cute!
This technique is so easy!
The items I used for this card are:
- Mint Macaron Card Base: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored on the long side at 4 1/4″
- Terracotta Tile Mat: 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Terracotta Tile Mat: 3 3/4″ x 5″
- 2 – 3 Pieces of Desinger Series Paper – roughly 3″ x 4 1/4″
- Whisper White scrap (stamp and punch out sentiment)
- Vellum Cardstock scrap (punch out label)
- Terracotta Tile Ribbon (this is also from the upcoming Suite)
- Adhesive Backed Sequins
First you’ll want to take your pieces of DSP and trim them at an angle to create your scrappy strips. You can likely get 2-3 pieces out of each piece as listed above. I think I might have used 4 different pieces to get the designs you see above, since they are double sided. If you’re going to make your pattern with cardstock, you’ll want 5 – 6 pieces or larger pieces, depending on your desired pattern. I cut my pieces to be larger than the mat I’m gluing them to so that I can vary the piece location. Whatever hangs over the edges, I just trim off. I do try to keep the same gap in between my pieces, though, for consistency.
Once you have your scrappy strips trimmed and ready for placement, you can lay them out and move them around on your smaller mat (3 3/4″ x 5″). I laid all of my pieces out and then glued them down one by one. Once these were in place, I trimmed off the edges and then adhered that mat to the larger Terracotta mat giving it more of the same color for the layer.
I wrapped my ribbon around this whole layer and added foam dimensionals before adhering it to my Mint card base.
I used my Label Me Lovely punch and Vellum Cardstock to make a layer to sit behind my sentiment. My sentiment is stamped and punched out with the Label Me Fancy punch. I stamped the cute sunflower, colored it with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut it out to add a little peek-a-boo next to my sentiment. My final touch was adding some bling (because how can I not..) with some Adhesive Backed Sequins. Easy peasy (lemon squeezy, as my 4 year old says..)!
Here’s one more close up of my card so you can see the gorgeous foiling on some of the papers.. LOVE it!
