Neat and Tangled 4th Birthday Blog Hop Day 3!


Welcome to Day 3 of Neat & Tangled's 4th Birthday Celebrations! If you missed Day 1 or Day 2, be sure to check out those posts for more inspiration from our design team and fabulous guests.


I started my card by smooshing nine mini distress inks on a large acrylic block. After the panel dried, I used the Doily Tag Die as a stencil with pearlescent embossing paste. To create the sentiment, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp and heat emboss the custom Celebrate sentiment twice, once on vellum and once on patterned paper.


Then I used the Celebrate Dies to die cut the scripted word from the vellum panel. I used scissors to hand-cut the other layers of patterned paper and then stitched them together using my sewing machine. After assembling the card, I added a few splatters to the background.

    1. All those layers and textures. I love them. I've never been a fan of yellow maybe because I look horrid in it but the more I see it used on cards the more I like it. Love your card..it bold, bright and carefully thought out.
