Today, I’m featuring a CAS card I made using Reading Away The Afternoon – D19043 from Dreamerland Crafts. These 2 little friends are enjoying a wonderful day just relaxing and sharing time together! There’s nothing like holding a real book in your hands. I know that today there a lot of e-books, but I’m old fashioned and still love to sit back and relax and hold onto a real book. How about yourself? Do you prefer a real book or e-books?
To make this card I used a white base card from “Studio g” of 5″ x 5″. The sentiment was stamped directly to the base using my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Reading Lexi stamp. The sentiment was then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat set the embossing powder.
The background and image were die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies. I adhered the larger die cut directly to the base using double-sided tape.
I stamped the image onto the smaller die-cut and then stamped it again on some Post-it note to create a mask. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean was used along with stencils I created from Avery Elle – Pierced Cloud Die. Then the grass was added in. To create texture on the grass, I used some rubbing alcohol and a piece of old rag with some ridges on it.
Once the background was completed, I coloured in the main image with Copic markers. The grass had also been coloured in with the same markers. The image was then popped up onto the base using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
