Hello everyone! It’s Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook today, sharing this trio of slimline cards I created using the new Glory in the Highest dies. As soon as I saw this set I knew that I wanted to try this design in multiple colors. I love how they all turned out.
I started this process by die cutting the angels and sentiments from white cardstock 3 times for each card and once from gold, then I glued the layers all together. I tried to keep the small letters inset for one layer so they were easier to manipulate, like you see in the picture below.
Next, I cut 3 panels and chose my colors of distress oxide inks for blending. I blended a trio of colors for each card, spritzed the panels with water and flicked gold watercolor on them as well. Here’s a color map in case you’d like to replicate any of the blends.
Once the panels were dry, I die cut them with the dainty scallop edge panel die and adhered the angel and sentiments with liquid glue. I lined the back with foam tape and was getting ready to mount them on white card bases but I didn’t like how stark it looked.
So instead I cut 3 pieces of kraft cardstock, adhered those to the white card bases and inked up the edges with gathered twigs distress oxide ink. I spritzed them with water and flicked gold watercolor on there as well so everything ties together.
Then I removed the release paper and adhered each panel to a card base. Voila, 3 gorgeous Christmas cards to add to my stash.
I hope you found some inspiration from today’s project to create something wonderful and share it with someone!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
