Once her panel was completely dry, Michelle cut it to size to fit a slimline card base. She used the Cloud Slimline Die to cut a few layers of clouds from vellum and created a mountain silhouette from white card stock. She adhered the cloud layers directly to the panel and added the mountains with dimensional adhesive.
SO PRETTY! And you can add any greeting to this card for something simple, sweet and stunning.
After the color burst background was completely dry, she attached it to a slimline card base. She used the new OPC (One Piece Cut) Geo Squares Slimline Die to cut a sheet of rice paper. Then she used the OPC Wavy Slimline Die on a piece of woodgrain patterned paper. Four snips later to cut OUT the “window pieces” of the wavy die cut and she had an awesome frame! Michelle first adhered the rice paper along the edges to the back of the Wavy frame and then used slim pieces of dimensional adhesive to mount the whole assembly over her color burst background.
We just love the use of rice paper here to give the overlay some translucence but also some body. And her alteration of that die cut is pretty snazzy, too!
