Today I have a card featuring the versatile Large Alphabet Dies by Kat Scrappiness.
The letters make such a nice focal point, I wanted to attach a few together to make an almost chipboard-like embellishment. I first adhered black “fun foam” to the backs of 2 Xs and 2 Os using liquid adhesive. This not only gives more thickness, but also gives a nice shadow effect. You could use other colors as well and those would look great too!
I then clustered the Xs and Os together so they fit nicely, adhering them with flat glue dots. This bold embellishment would be really great on a scrapbook page too!
I’ve been in love with Lawn Fawn’s new How You Bean?-Conversation Hearts Add-On stamp set. The little hearts are so fun to color with Copics! This time, I went with bright colors to offset the black and white of the letters.
After laying out my design, I wanted to stamp a few of the open hearts and a sentiment directly on my card. I used my Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform to be sure I got everything straight and close enough together. For a graphic card like this, being precise is very important for the look.
Copics tend to show through cardstock if you color directly on it, so my remedy for that is cute patterned paper. I took a strip of paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petit Paper Pack and added it to the inside of the card where the Copics ran through. The paper coordinates with the front of the card and adds a cute detail to the inside.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope you’ll try this clustering technique with your letter dies. It’s a fun way to make a bold statement on the front of your card. All the supplies from the Kat Scrappiness shop are linked below. Be sure to use my coupon code Heidi10 to receive 10% off your purchase.
