TECHNIQUES AND TIPS FOR THE MASCULINE CARDS
QUICK TIP– ink and blend a 1/4″ piece of white card stock using a combination of Altenew ink cubes in shades of blue and turquoise. Die cut the inked paper and using the Altenew Fine Frames Diamond nesting set to die cut the diamond shapes and add them to the 1/4″ sheet of white card stock. I added the smallest diamond die pieces to the center of the inked pieces.
QUICK TIP- use glossy black card stock for the die cut Hello. Add silver glitter washi tape as an accent piece for the word tag.
QUICK TIP– cover the 1/4′ piece of white card stock to crate a border to create a rectangle section. Ink the section using a variety of Altenew ink cubes. Remove the masking paper covering the sides of the paper. Use the Altenew Curving Leaves Botanical 3D embossing folder to and a die cutting machine to create the embossed image.
QUICK TIP- use gold glitter card stock for the die cut Hello. Die cut it again and glue together for added dimension.
QUICK TIP- use patterned/printed paper to stamp and die cut the couch, pillows, lamp shades and floor lamp bases. Die cut another set from white card stock to add dimension to the furniture pieces. Create a picture frame stamping a sentiment from the set and cut into a rectangle
QUICK TIP- create a background using a Altenew gradient dot stencil and light blue Altenew ink cube.
QUICK TIP- stamp the three potted plants on white card stock. Color and blend using Altenew alcohol ink markers. Die cut the colored images and die cut another set from white card stock for layering and added dimension.
QUICK TIP- use Altenew’s Dotted Swirl debossing plate for added interest behind the colored potted plants. Use the Altenew tree ring stencil for the background.
QUICK TIP-ink a piece of small strip of white card stock using one of the coordinating ink cubes for a coordinating stamped Hello word tag.
