Today, I am over on the Craftin Desert Divas blog, along with my own sharing this fun hello card that I created. To create this bright and fun dimensional card I mixed several die cuts with a brand new digital stamp, “Scootin By”. I LOVE this card and how it turned out. I am thinking I need to make a few more of these but switch the sentiment HI out to say Happy Birthday! In the meantime, you can watch the full video tutorial below!
As always I began in Photoshop Elements, and after measuring the opening rectangle in the Window Pane Die (1.5″ x 2.25″) I created a new blank project of the same size. I then brought in the image from the “Scootin By” Digital Stamp Set and sized it to fit the panel. Finally, I printed off the image and also the sentiment using my laser printer, colored in the image with my alcohol marker, and finished up by fussy cutting out the little guy.
I decided to do all of my die cutting at one time, so I pulled out my Big Kick and using white card stock I cut the Window Pane die, the Picket Fence and Grass Border from the Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies, and also the tree die from the same die set from brown card stock. Using both the top and bottom of the grass die cut, I Distress Inked up a blue sky and green grass to create a little scene.
To put everything together I used glossy accents to first put the tree die cuts on both the left and right side of the background panel and also the white picket fence over those. Finally, I popped up the little critter in the right bottom corner and then popped up the Window Pane Die Cut to complete the scene. To complete the entire card I adhered the pane onto an A2 top folding white card base and then the sentiment banner to the pane with double sided adhesive.
I absolutely love all the new digis that have been popping up in the Craftin Desert Divas shop, I just wish there were more hours in my day to use them all!
