Once again, Waffle Flower is generously providing a GIVEAWAY* to one of my blog readers (that would be YOU) if you comment on this blog post by May 31st. The GIVEAWAY* is Kit #05 – the same kit I used to make my card for today! Winners are picked at random and will be announced on Waffle Flower’s More Inspiration blog! *the GIVEAWAY can only be shipped to the US.
Everything on my card today uses only items from the new kit – including the Oversized Hugs Print die, the Inside Pop-Up XOs die (so cool!) and sentiments from the Mini Sentiments stamp set and the Subsentiment Hugs diecuts.
To make this card:
1.Ink-blend the bottom half of your card base using a rainbow of colors (my colors are
listed in the supplies section below) and set aside.
2.Use those same colors to ink-blend a piece of white card stock large enough for the
Inside Pop-Up XOs die, then die cut it. Set it aside.
3.Die cut the shadow die from the Oversides Hugs Print die from a white panel. I
positioned mine in the bottom 1/3 of the panel but you could put yours wherever you
4.Adhere you die cut panel to your card base. You should be able to see the rainbow
colors through the die cut opening.
5.Die cut the Hugs sentiment several times out of white cardstock and adhere them
together to get some dimension. I used 3 layers of 120# cardstock and one layer of
cardstock that matches my die cut panel.
6.Adhere your Hugs sentiment inside the cut out shadow on your card front.
7.Adhere your Subsentiment (I used “& KISSES”) using foam adhesive.
8.Use a bone folder to gently fold the Inside Pop-Up XOs die on the dashed and scored
lines that were made by the die. It should fold into a “box”.
9.Making sure your X’s and O’s are facing the right way, adhere the bottom of the “box
“to the inside of your card just under the fold (leave only a sliver of room for the card
10.Adhere the back of the “box” to the top flap of the card just above the fold.
IMPORTANT: Your card will NOT lay flat when opened. It will open to 90 degrees to
show off the dimensional pop up of the X’s and O’s strip.
11.Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card.
12.Add a few gems to the front of the card for some sparkle!
I hope you like this card and that it inspires you to create something today! I can’t wait to see what you make with this kit (and any of the others)!
