Happy Monday, everyone! Welcome to my third and last video for my Close To My Heart video series. Sorry I didn’t post a Saturday Stamp Day video this Saturday. My wisdom teeth got removed on Friday so I was in severe pain in the weekend. I did manage to make these two fruity notecards for you today featuring some fun Close To My Heart products. I sound a little bit different in today’s video. That’s because I’m still in pain and my cheeks are so swollen. I look like a chipmunk, lol. I’d show you a picture of my face but I’d rather not since it’s kinda embarrassing. 😉
These cards were really easy and fast to make! I wasn’t feeling well while I was making these cards so I wanted to come up with a quick and easy design and techniques. Just like last week, I did some inlaid die cutting. This is an easy and cool technique that definitely adds an extra touch to your cards.
I stamped a watermelon and a pineapple pattern with the One in a Melon stamp set from Close To My Heart. For the watermelons, I used Pixie ink for the fruity part of the watermelon and Pear ink for the green part. For the pineapple I used Amber ink for the main piece of the pineapple and Pear ink for the leaves.
After stamping and heat embossing a greeting it was time to add something extra to this card! I decided to do some more inlaid die cutting. For the inlaid die cutting pieces, I used a circle die. You could use a punch if you don’t have a die cutting machine! I die cut the circles for each design 8 times out of some colored card stock. I die cut these circles out of colored card stock because it adds some extra interest and color to this card! You could layer up different colors for a rainbow effect. Finally, I finished off my card with some clear sequins here and there to add extra sparkle.
That’s it for today! Thanks for watching my video and for reading my post. See you soon! Xo
