Orange You So Awesome Encouragement Card
Hello Everyone. Thank you for stopping by. Todays project is an encouragement card; Orange You Awesome .
Concord & 9th’s stamps and die are unique. They steer away from cutesy , or child like characters and focus on different innovative designs. They have won numerous awards for their designs.
Ink to Paper:
Memories Black Dye Ink Pad was used to stamp all of the images. Orange rims first and then pulp section stamps inside the rim. Both sizes were stamped and multiples of each on white card stock. Black and orange card stock sheets from Bazzill Premium Paper (100 sheet) Pack were trimmed a smidgeon larger than the two piece Awesome die ( from my stash). A few oranges in both sizes were cut with Orange You Sweet Dies. A press of the button and the images were cut with Crafters Companion Gemini Die Cutting Machine.
“Orange You So” was stamped with Memories Black Dye Ink Pad on the edge of white card stock and trimmed to a .25 ” x 5.5 ” strip. MFT’s Black & White Stripes 6×6 Pad and Silky Sky Tonic Mirror Card were also cut into .25 x 5.5 ” strips. The white sentiment strip was shortened to 2.5 “.
Be Creative 3mm tape was applied to the reverse side of “Orange You So” strip and then attached on top of Silky Sky Tonic Mirror Card ( this was trimmed to 3″). The die cut word “Awesome” had Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive applied sparingly to the back and placed precisely over the black word shadow die cut. Once dry this was applied between the layered sentiment and the edge of last remaining full size strip. (MFT’s Black & White Stripe strip).
Three orange die cuts were formed into a triangle on the left hand side of a landscape card front panel . Once I was happy with the placement they were adhered directly to the panel. “Orange You So Awesome” sentiment strip was applied centre horizontally to the front panel with 3 D Foam Squares ( low profile).
The front panel was secured to a side fold landscape card with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. An inside card panel was trimmed to 4.15 x 5.5″. MFT’s Black & White Stripes 6×6 Pad piece of stripped paper was trimmed to .25 x 5.5 ” and adhered to the bottom edge of the inside panel. ” I Could Just Squeeze You ” was inked with Memories Black Dye Ink Pad and stamped a tad higher than centre. The inside card panel was attached to the inside card base with liquid adhesive.
Sequins to match Silky Sky Tonic Mirror was attached above and below “Awesome” and a small sequin attached above the “e” to form a triangle.
Orange You So Awesome Encouragement card is now complete. Until next time. xo Karen
