I absolutely love the new Gina K Designs Million Little Things duo set.
I bought this particular set as I knew I’d get a lot of use from it – I’ve already made several cards to donate to the local oncology ward, including the one seen above.
This was a very simple card.
I started with an M-bossilities embossing folder. I bought this one just a few weeks ago, and it’s only the second time I’ve used it, I think. It is one of those reversible folders, which I find to be fantastic value. This one is called “Whimsical Flora”. (If you’re using a Cuttlebug, you only need the A & C Plates, otherwise you’ll crack the EF. Sorry, I don’t know what plates to use in other machines.)
I covered the base in Distress Ink to give it some colour. In this case I decided to de-boss rather than emboss.
Then I stamped the greeting in black, and added the image in the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I cut out the greeting tag, then rounded the corners.
Next I sponged around the edges. When I added the tag to the embossed base, it blended in too much with the background and was barely visible, so I added another die underneath. (I’ve had it for ages – I looked, but don’t have the original packaging to tell you which one it is. I “think” it’s a Cheery Lynn die.)
Still didn’t like it, so sponged the edges of that die with gold ink.
That was much better, but it still needed more. So I cut out a Spellbinders Tag die – from Fancy Tags Two – but it was too short for the greeting tag I’d made. So I cut it in half, as most of it was going to be hidden anyway. Then I sponged around the ends of it as well, and taped it to the back of the greeting.
Once I was happy with all that, I put it together and added it to the embossed base, then added the whole lot to the cardbase.
That’s it – all done. This card will be making its way to the oncology ward very soon!
