Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m going to share the new Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper combined with Brusho Crystal Colour. That’s a mouth full! It was actually quite simple to do, and I’ll let you in on a few tips. Here’s the completed project:
I’m intrigued by this Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I love the intricate patterns, and it’s fun exploring different ways to use it. It comes neatly packaged with tissue between the layers.
TIP: Be careful separating the sheets, because the pieces are easily tangled.
Another TIP: Control your glue. I have good luck with the Tombow Liquid Glue, lightly touching the tip to those skinny lines. You need to find what works for you, because a gluey mess is no fun.
For this project, I cut a corner section from the 12X12 sheet. Then, I did some further trimming to get the shape I wanted.
The shape was determined by this week’s CAS(E) this sketch challenge.
Do you see the prominent cupcake? For my prominent flower, I found a die in the Eclectic Layers Die Set that would coordinate with the Laser-Cut flowers. I used a piece of Vellum to keep the flower sheer, and attached it with a dimensional.
TIP: I colored the dimensional with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend, so the dimensional would look good while showing. I’ve used this method previously, so I knew it would stick.
Now for the background. I cut a piece of Shimmery White cardstock 4 X 5 1/4, and spritzed it with water. When it was sufficiently wet, I sprinkled Yellow Brusho Crystal Colour all over, less at the top, and spritzed some more. I let it dry, then pressed it under a heavy book, while I did something else, (probably laundry).
TIP: Have patience if you want it flat.
I was happy with my yellow background, so this is when I glued my flowers, and adhered the art piece to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.
I decided not to add a sentiment to the front, like I usually do. I thought about black for contrast, but ended up liking the delicate look. This will be an all-occasions card. I did decorate the envelope flap, though, using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
Thank you for visiting me today. I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new. Have a great weekend!
