Hello, hello!

It’s the third day of the Neat & Tangled November release, and we are showcasing some more fabulous products!

Day 3 is for the Star Coverplate and Stencil, both equally as gorgeous as each other. I played with the coverplate to whip up a simple birthday card:

I began by creating a Distress Ink background and heat set to dry. I then ran the Star coverplate through my die-cutting machine three times with white cardstock and glued each piece together to form a thicker embellishment.

I then trimmed a section out of the centre and adhered it to the Distress Ink panel. I foam mounted this to a white card base and then used the Journalling Alpha Numbers to die-cut the 45 and adhered it down.

I also ran the coverplate through some Copper foil cardstock and used some of the pieces to fill in the design on the card front.

To finish up, I sprinkled with a few Merlot Mix sequins. Here’s my second card, this time using the Star Stencil:

I taped the stencil down on top of a panel of white cardstock and simply sponged through two shades of Distress Ink, being careful not to take the ink all the way to the edges.

I then adhered the panel down to a white card base and looked for matching pattern paper for the tree embellishments. These were die-cut using the Scandinavian Christmas Prints dies and foam mounted to the card front.

The sentiment comes from the co-ordinating Scandinavian Christmas Prints set and was stamped with Versamark onto a piece of black cardstock, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.

The sentiment was trimmed down and also foam mounted to the card front. To finish, I added some Gold Mix sequins.
