I used a teal card base cut 4.25 x 11 inches, then scored and top folded at 5.5 inches. Next, I cut a Bazzill Card Shoppe in Marshmallow panel using the scalloped & stitched rectangle from the Sunshine Layers Die by WPLUS9. This panel is 4 x 5.25 inches. The Bazzill Card Shoppe Papers are 110# papers and hold up very well if you are using any kind of mist or spray, Copic Markers or Distress Inks.
Next I cut a panel from the Sea Glass card stock then cut a heart shaped window into it using a heart die from Memory Box Cherub Hearts. I used a T-Ruler to line up the die since I am bad about not getting it centered. I didn't make a mark on my card stock, I just placed it using the ruler as my guide. I use micro pore tape, washi tape or masking tape to gently hold the die in place while cutting. Once I did that, I turned the panel over and put adhesive all around the heart shaped opening. I use a variety of different adhesives but the one that I use most often is the Tombow Mono Adhesive Permanent Runner.
Next I did a few cuts of my Simon Says Stamp Caliope Die in white shimmer paper. I then placed the cuts randomly across and into the heart shaped opening to give a "lacy" look. For the size heart I used, three cuts was more than enough to fill the opening. Once I had those placed and secured along the edge of the heart opening, I cut a slightly smaller piece of semi-transparent soft blue vellum behind that panel for the color instead of the Marshmallow background. After that, I die-cut that panel with a Stitched Rectangle in a size that coordinated with the Scalloped & Stitched panel.
Once that was complete, I adhered the Sea Glass and vellum panel to the Marshmallow Panel, and attached that to my card base.
The "smile" die cut was part of a set from Little Yellow Bicycle. I have several one word greetings that would be equally suitable. You could also use other shapes to achieve this look.
I'm planning to try out a few others today and will post pictures for you to see. This card will be entered into the Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday Challenge.
For the inside I put a strip of Teal Glittered Washi Tape down the left hand side of a piece of Bazzill Marshmallow and cut it with the Stitched & Scalloped Rectangle Panel so it would be easy to see when you write on it. *Ü*
