Thanks to The Rubber Cafe for this great tutorial!
Hello! My name is Debbie Seyer and today is my first official day posting here at The Rubber Cafe
‘. I am so excited to be on such a great team!
One thing you will find out pretty quick about me is that my first love is to make cards. I still scrapbook and do some mixed media projects but my first love is definitely cardmaking. Because I always have extra cards sitting around, my friends and family will treat my craft room like it’s the Hallmark store…LOL!!
For this reason, I never just make one card. I have learned to make at least 4 of each card I make. Today I will show you my process for making 4 cards the easy way!
I picked out the die templates I wanted to use first. I decided to use the A2 Matting Basics A and A-2 Polka Dots die templates from Spellbinders Paper Arts new Card Creator line. Here are the ones I decided on. Since the Base Plate is so big, I can cut/emboss everything I need for a card at one time!
Here is what my dies look like after cutting and embossing!
I stamped the image using Staz-on onto some Neenah Solar Crest White. I used my Tumbled Glass distress marker and a water brush
to color the image. I did everything assembly-line style so that I could get it all done faster! LOL
I layered everything together and added the ribbon to the senitment panels. Now all I have to do is put these pieces together on the base of Kraft cardstock and I am all done. Here are my finished cards!
I am sure these cards will disappear pretty fast at my house. I just love how quick and easy these came together. Plus I think they are so pretty! Thanks for reading along with me today!
