Would you like a card that is easy to make, but looks like it took you a long time? This is the card for you. I can't remember where I saw this card, but it was perfect to show you how to do the Ghost Technique. This was my first time trying it and I really liked how it came out. I used three different colors, as I wanted to show some of the new in colors, but you could do it with just one if you would like.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272
Berry Burst Cardstock #144243
Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 3 3/4" x 5" this will be used for your template
- cut at 3 1/2" x 3 3/4"
The first thing you need to do is make your template for your circles. I used the layering circle framelits, 1/2" and 3/4" circle punches and the 1/8" handheld punch to make mine. Once you have your template made you lay it on top of the piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Using the White Craft Ink I colored in the circles using a combination of the sponge and dauber. I mostly used the dauber as it was easier to cover the little circles. One thing I learned making this card is to secure the bottom layer with washi tape. See the picture below for how I did the white layer of circles.
Next I picked up the template and moved it over to the right about 1/8". You can move it as much or little as you would like. I then added washi tape to the top layer, so now they are both secure. I didn't want my template to move all over while I was trying to sponge the different colors. As you can see in the picture below I only used the daubers on this step. I wanted a deeper color than I could get with the sponges.
Here is a picture of it closer so you can see the circles better.
I cut out the Happy Birthday using the new Happy Birthday Thinlits along with our new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. I love, love, love, did I say love, the adhesive sheets.
When you use them, the adhesive will already be on the back of your cutout so you just peel the backing off and adhere to your project. You don't have to try to get adhesive on the back of the little sections anymore.
It is really easy to use them. You are going to take the backing off the adhesive sheet (I cut these down to the same size as my paper I am going to be cutting from, as they come in 6" x 12" sheets) and adhere it to the back of your cardstock. Then use your framelit like you always have and cut it out on the Big Shot. When you are finished it will have the adhesive already on it. Peel off the back and stick it to your project. Ta Da it's done!
I know you are going to love them as much as I do when you use it for the first time. These are going to be especially wonderful with all of our detailed framelits/thinlits.
Now you know how to make a wow card in a few minutes that looks like it took forever. Your friends and family will be impressed by your talent.
I am so excited for today! Emily is coming home!!! It has been since March since I have seen her and I can't wait to give my baby a big hug. It will be so nice having her home for two weeks. On Wednesday, Emily, Erica and myself will be heading to Traverse City, MI to visit my family. I haven't seen any of them, especially my mom, in a year. I can't wait!
Most of the ladies in my family, are going to go to lunch and a wine tour on Saturday. We have started this a couple of years ago and it has turned into an annual event. We always have so much fun, with lots of laughter and making new memories.
I will also get to meet my new grand nephew (ok that makes me sound really old) for the first time. I have only seen pictures for this little guy. I can't wait to kiss his chubby little cheeks.
Thank you for stopping in today! I hope you have a marvelous Monday and week.
