I wanted to try something different today. Using the Petal Cone Die, I created a "fan card". I've seen a few of these in blog land. I added a touch of embossed white to help make the pinks pop:
The sentiment is also embossed and cut out with the Decorative Label Punch. If you would like to learn how to layer the punch, click HERE for a step-by-step tutorial:
I had a lot of fun using the pinks and the Delicate Doilies Stamp Set. 3 out of the 4 stamps coordinate perfectly with one of our punches. And notice how the delicate designs just pop when you add embossing powder to the mix!
Fan Card Supplies:
- Tools: BigShot Machine, Petal Cone Die, Heat Gun, Decorative Label Punch
- Inks: Rose Red, Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White Craft, VersaMark, Sponge Dauber
- Accessories: Glimmer Brads, White Embossing Powder
- Stamp Sets: Delicate Doilies, My Friend
How did I create this? What I did was cut 3 petal cones from the die, I cut off the tabs on the sides and then cut each cone in half on the score line so I ended up with 6 individual "cone" pieces. I glued the individual scallop pieces on the backs of 5 of them in a different color and then assembled them together with the Glimmer Brad on the bottoms. I only used 5 of the 6 individual cone pieces that were cut out. I then added a little glue to the sides and stuck them together. I folded the little tiny triangles that remain at the bottom once the glimmer brad is inserted so that the fan lays flat.
