Hello Digi Divas, Today I want to share with you my NEW "Puttin' on the Ritz" - 3225J digi stamp set. He is a dashing and handsome little penguin all dressed up, cane and flowers in hand; ready for his date for Valentine's Day!
I know many of you are still in the Christmas mode, but I need to keep ahead of you... However, I do want to wish each and everyone of you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a BLESSED NEW YEAR! Come along as I share with you a step by step tutorial for this delightful little card of my NEW creation!
Suggested card size: 7"x5"
Card Front: Size the Penguin image with hearts to
3¼x4¼". I copied and pasted 2 more times for a
total of 3 images (an extra just in case).
Select the sentiment of your choice. Print 2 (just in
case). One sized at 1" and one at 1¼".
Print on Hammermill® 100lb. white card stock.
Color as desired, I used Copic® markers.
If you use the colored images you may want to
touch them up with Copic® markers.
Cut the images apart as shown.
Place the Tonic® Heart Die on the top image
and lightly trace around the outside edge.
Fussy cut the parts that need to overlap the
die to avoid being cut by the die (as shown).
Die cut the image, avoiding the heart
sections (as shown).
Cut the extra hearts on the lower left free
from the die cut, leaving the 2 hearts overhanging
Save the extra hearts for later.
Fussy Cut a second image of just the penguin.
Save the hearts to the side.
Using the WeR® Heart Doily Die and American
Crafts® Red Glitter Paper, run through your Big
Shot®. This is the red heart that goes with the pink
doily heart. Trace around the penguin/heart
image onto the back of the DCWV® Mercury Gold
Card Stock.Using a ruler, trace an extra ¼" around
the outline and fussy cut as shown.
Using the smallest Tonic Essentials® Heart
Die, center on the sentiment you chose and run
through the Big Shot®.
Using the third Tonic Essentials® Heart Die
and American Crafts® Red Glitter Paper run
through the Big Shot®.
Center and glue your sentiment to the red die cut heart using dimensional glue (as shown).
Cut the Paper Studio® Red Card Stock to 5x7".
Cut the AstroBrights® Eclipse Black Card Stock
to 4½x6½". Center and adhere the black piece
to the red piece using dimensional glue (as shown).
This is the base of the front of your card. Adhere
the pink doily heart to the card base.
Adhere the red die cut heart to the card base
Center and adhere the die cut penguin in
the heart image to the gold heart image using
¼" Tear-ific® Tape. Attach the combined piece
to the front of the card using dimensional glue.
Adhere the combined sentiment heart piece
to the card front using dimensional glue
Place the card front on a coffee filter.
VersaMark® the hearts. Apply dimensional
glue. Dump Sparkle Embossing powder on
hearts. Empty the excess back into your jar.
Apply heat with a heat gun.
Fussy cut some extra hearts from the extras
you have. Repeat the embossing process.
Attach singly to the front of the card in lower
right hand corner.
Repeat the glitter and embossing process with your
second penguin piece.
Card Base: Cut your card base 7x10 inches. Score at 5 inches. Adhere the card front to the card base (fold on top) using ¼" Tear-ific® Tape.
That is our journey in card making for today! I hope you had fun as I did sharing my NEW #3225J "Puttin' on the Ritz" images. Our little man is all dressed up, flowers in hand, and ready to go!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
