I recently placed an order to Hero Arts and bought this pretty die. I thought it would make a quick and simple card. I’m always in need of birthday cards, so I decided to try it out. First, I cut the die from Tonic Studios Black Velvet Mirror Card stock. If you haven’t tried this paper out, you need to! It has a gorgeous matte finish and feels almost velvety to the touch. I love it and I like how nicely it works with the die.
Next, I used a smooth card stock to create my background.
I started in the middle of my paper with Stormy Sky Distress Oxide ink. Then I blended in Seedless Preserves and finally, Black Soot. To give a little sparkle, I spritzed some shimmer spray.
Next, I glued my silhouette using my favorite glue “Art Glitter Designer Adhesive”. It is perfect for little spaces and dries clear. After I glued my parts together, I stamped the sentiment from Unity Stamps Cuddlebug Dragon set, with Ink on 3 Blackout Ink. Because it was stamped over the oxide ink, it appears grey…and I like that look.
This card really didn’t take long from start to finish. I hope you like it!
