Welcome to the Taylored Expressions May Release Spotlight Hops where today we have a blog hop that features all the designers showcasing this awesome release!
For my project today I created a cardset with the absolutely gorgeous Mr. & Mrs. Cutting plate and some metallic cardstock. This cutting plate is amazing - seirously makes it so easy to create a set of cards. I decided to go monochromatic and pick cardstock that is gold, copper, vintage gold and use cream on white for my card set - here is look at the set that created:
Paper: Stardream Metallic Cardstock (Vintage Gold and Copper), Gold cardstock, Choice Buttercream cardstock, Choice Snow White cardstock
Accessories: Bling, pearls, glaze
I ran the cutting plate through my Big Shot and recommend using the Metal Shim that Taylor has in the store for making it easy to pop out all the delicate areas of the plate. I actually cut out two in the same color and layered them ontop of each other before layering it on to the card back so that the card would have more texture and weight and dimension (hard to see in the picture) and then afterwards I added some bling or pearls in coordinating colors and a light glaze over the Mr. and Mrs. part of the card:
Here is the same card in creams and white with pearls of different sizes:
I used gold with some white bling for this card:And here is the vintage gold card with some pearls and rhinestones that I colored in with my copics:
This is a wonderful die for all the anniversaries, weddings or celebration of love moments that you want to celebrate :) and it makes it super easy to create a card that looks like it took a lot of time to make ;) Can't wait to see what the rest of the ladies have created today - please hop over and check them out with me!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
