Congrats!

Hi there, Connie Nichol here today with a couple of Congrats cards featuring a new die from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Way with Words collection designed by Suzanne Cannon.  I just love these word dies for making cards - whether you put the die cut on a simple background or a fancy textured background, they always look stunning.

So, this is a fancy textured background, but not hard to make.  I adhered crumpled up white tissue paper to a piece of cardstock with Mod Podge, and then sprinkled some Nuance powders on top to add some colour.  I then spritzed lightly with a little water to dilute and spread the colour.  Nuance is a very concentrated water soluble powdered dye available in a number of colours from Magenta.  After the tissue dried, I adhered the diecuts.  The fancy border die cuts are cut from cardstock using the very versatile 'Ribbons and Jewels' set from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  


This card is a much different style.  I cut the Congrats word and stars from a Shimmer Sheetz (iridescent Mylar from Elizabeth Craft Designs) and adhered them to a piece of pre-glittered cardstock.  The border is made from dry embossing a small rectangle of Shimmer Sheetz to add some subtle texture and adhering an additional piece of the glittered cardstock that had been cut with a die from the ECS Ribbons and Jewels die set.  Easy but  elegant.

Supplies Used:  Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, Shimmer Sheetz and embossing folders, Core'dinations cardstock, Magenta Nuance powders and Plaid Mod Podge
