Fun Friends & Creative Dies

All this week Penny Black has been celebrating the newest addition to their product line... Creative Dies!  They have also sprinkled in more new rubber stamps.

Fun Friends

This mini card was created with the new transparent set Homemade and a banner from the Tagged Creative Dies set which includes 9 different shapes.


Make this "summer refreshment" in 4 steps!  
  1. Trim a Les Petites card base to measure 3 x 3 3/4.  Round the top right corner.  Stamp the sentiment in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Set aside.
  2. Die cut the banner from red cardstock and stamp Warm Wishes (checkered pattern) on top with Love Letter Memento ink.
  3. Attach the banner to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam tape and accent the left end with a black glaze pen to create three faux brads.
  4. Stamp "Homemade" on a separate piece of white cardstock in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Watercolor the image and fussy cut.  Adhere to the banner as shown.

TIP/HINT:  To extend/lengthen banners, simply cut the image in half letting the left and right hand sides extend beyond the layered image.  The separation cut will be hidden behind the layered image.

Happy Friday,
