Now that we have decided on keeping (most of the) gifts, it is time to send out those thank you cards. I am using just one stencil with three different types of mediums to create three unique cards. If you have been following my posts, you will have all of these items in your stash!
TCW provided me with some awesome goodies to play with, but the opinions and creations are my own.
I am using TCW729 City Buildings by Carmen Medlin for all three cards. On A2 heavy cardstock, smear three different stencil butters all over a secured stencil. I used washi tape because of the low tack (and also because I have no other use for it!) Also, I used their plastic palette knife as well.
Let this dry for about 10 to 15 minutes. Fussy cut the top of the buildings and mount it on separate A2 cardstock. I used a cover plate that embossed the circles on the back.
Use double-sided foam tape to raise the buildings off the card in the back.
Finish the card with a sentiment or large metal die-cut.
This card was made using the TCW729 and TCW9048 Hot Foil Gel.
Apply the gel the same way as the butter and let it dry. Wash the stencil immediately after.
Once the gel is clear, it is then dry and ready to foil. Use your hot laminator with your favorite color foil between a sheet of printer paper and run it through. I also fussy cut this building but framed part of it instead. I embossed the black cardstock in the back for more interest. Finish the card with a “Thanks” die-cut.
This card was super easy. I just used a part of the TCW729 stencil and TCW9041 Platinum Modeling Paste and TCW9043 Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste for coloring. Start with the yellow background and
then smear the modeling paste.
I used two variants of silver to create depth.
I used another cover plate for the swirls and added rhinestones for some shimmer.
Thanks for stopping by. Which one is your favorite? I would love for you to let me know what technique you would like to see more of this year. I appreciate all your comments and input!!
