Hello and welcome to Simon Says Stamp DieCember® release blog hop! Its Day #2 of the blog hop. Check out Day #1 blog hop here. So excited about the 33 new dies and the glitter cardstocks released. what can I say? It is Gorgeous! You can find all the gorgeous new products here.I am so grateful to be sent a few and I am excited to share with you a project using couple of them.
The border dies are so pretty especially when they are used together. I started with smooshing distress oxide inks in rainbow colours on watercoloured papers to create textured coloured panels. I used Candied Apple, Wild Honey, Spiced marmalade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet. Then I used the two Arched Stitching Borders dies alternatively to die cut the panels. Then I layered the panels glued them in rainbow order. I trimmed the panels to the size of the card front as I adhered each panel. If you layer them all, it is very hard to cut the thick layer of watercoloured cardstocks. So trim as you go.
I adhered the layered panels on Fog card base. Finally I die cut the shadow of the Script Hello die using black cardstock and three Script Hellos using white cardstock. I stacked glued the hellos and adhered on top of the shadow die cut. This sentiment is adhered on top of the Candied Apple layer as shown. Then I embellished the card front using Moonstone sequins and topped the sequins with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in rainbow colours.
I let the details of the arched stitched border dies with the rainbow colours be the highlight of the card by keeping everything else on the card simple. Love love the alternate zig zag and scallop borders with the stitched details.
