Today I’m sharing another card for my snarky series, inspired by a stamp set from Chunky Monkey Crafts, who I am designing for. As with the other cards in this series I kept the design clean and simple. I used the embossing with dies technique to create my background, and added the sentiment popped up as the focal point.
My starting point was the background. I took my heart dies, used some post-it tape to hold them together, then positioned them onto my card base. I then ran the card and dies through my die cutting machine, with the sandwich set for embossing rather than cutting.
Next I stamped my sentiment from Narky Sentiments 2 onto a snippet of black card using embossing ink. I then white heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up onto my card base. It took a little while to decide where to put the sentiment but after consulting with my husband I eventually settled on placing it in the lower right hand corner.
I think this card turned out really nicely. It’s definitely clean and simple but the embossing with dies technique is a lot of fun. I think this card works well for sending to someone who maybe needs cheering up, or just to let them know you are thinking of them.
