PTI Blog Hop Take 2, The Card Concept and ColourQ






I am sneaking in with yet another post for today--a second card for the PTI March Blog Hop, inspired by this tutorial on Damask Love, the photo at The Card Concept #6, and this week's ColourQ #234.

I used a partial die cutting technique to cut part of a Mum's the Word flower out of the front of my card, then stamped the sentiment on the outside, and stamped a very colorful inside.  This is incredibly easy to do, but I have to admit I either smudged or didn't line things up or messed up in some other way, and this card is my 5th attempt.  When I smudged the inside of what I had determined to be the final card, I used a little sequin stamp from this Mama Elephant set, and we will just pretend that I wanted sequins inside and outside my card.  Those sequins are coated with glossy accents--and are the 'high gloss' for the PTI blog hop.

  6. I could not understand what you meant with your partial die cutting on the front, etc, until I saw the open version of the card. It's wonderful! And that is such a neat idea. Love the card. And of course there are no mistakes, only embellishment opportunities!
