Hullo there everyone .. Shaz here again with another DT post for Bizzy Bec's. Branching out into the unknown today, with a side step card!! For a very special birthday, you see! Here is a peek!
|To be perfectly honest I like simple layouts. These fancy folds are not simple layouts! Bec has a great die that makes variations on this side stepping card, it is here. Used a simple template I had for rough guide, working it out on scoreboard. Took two goes scoring to get it right, wanted it bigger than template.|
|Used the Frantic Stamper Dies - Chevron Borders & Edgers (2) - make a whole sheet for background of alternating chevrons. Glued down one at time, kept them in order as cut the individual ones, so as to keep *colour graduations, yes fiddly plus but great effect. *used pre-coloured sheet.|
|Base for image done, then cut it with largest die of SB Pierced Rectangles|
Stamped two images (one for base, one for 3D image) of the Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday in Versafine Black Onyx, and clear heat embossed.
|Die cut a pink scalloped base with Spellbinder Petite scallop (Disc.) and one image with Cottage Cutz Stitched Oval die (they fit spellbinder oval dies very well). |
While still in stitched die, ink coloured the background to match colours used on other image already coloured with Tombow markers. Fussy cut around the coloured dragon image, cutting into the folds of the image. Lay image on shaping mat face down, shape the image, with shaping tool to get 3D effect with minimal layers. Attached to base image with silicone glue and allow to dry.
See here for Tutorial to do it this way.
