Welcome back! I was watching the movie Legally Blonde a few days ago while I was waiting on queue and I remembered how I enjoyed watching this movie for the first time. I don’t think I could have gotten away in law school wearing pink and digesting cases in pink scented stationeries. However, pink is such a soft, warm and friendly color and it would definitely look good on handmade cards. Today, I would like to share with you pink inspired card I made using my Hello Telephone die.
The supplies that I used for this card are the following: Cardstocks with their respective measurements: White base card – 4 and 3/4 x 5 and 7/8, white front panel – 4 and 1/2 x 5 and 7/8, black cardstock – 4 and 5/8 x 5 and 3/4 and scrap cardstocks in light pink, gold, black, red fuchsia and red glitter foam adhesive for the telephone die cut. I also used a telephone die cut, Distress Ink Pads in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, Ranger Glossy Accents, Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation Pink, Kuratake Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen, washi tape, paddle blending brush, WRMK Score and Trim Board, guillotine trimmer, craft glue, Kokuyo Dotliner, Scotch foam tape, t-ruler and scissor.
After I scored and trim the cardstocks, I lined the washi tape on the white cardstock front panel to mask the areas where I do not want to apply the distress ink. After I applied and blended the Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, I remove the masking and set it aside to dry.
I die cut the telephone die with my scrap cardstocks using my Big Shot Machine. I glued the red “hello” sentiment on top of the black die cut to create a shadow effect on the die cut. To prepare the window, I cut the center of the front panel cardstock with pink stripes with a curved rectangle die and then to create the shadow window, I placed the black cardstock at the back of the front panel with the die cut window and align the smaller rectangle die cut in the middle of the black cardstock. After I made sure that the die is on the center of the black cardstock, I run it through my die cut machine.
I put a double-sided foam tape around the edge of the black cardstock and adhere it on the center of the base card for a recessed look. Next, I assembled the telephone die cut inside the window. I put a small foam tape on the handset die cut and insert it at the back of the switch or plungers to add more dimension.
I run a dot liner at the back of the front panel pink card and adhere it on the center of the black cardstock. For the sentiment, I placed the “You Got Me At” sentiment at the bottom of the telephone with a foam double sided adhesive as well as the “Hello” sentiment. I printed the “You Got Me At” sentiment using Adobe Illustrator.
I die cut several small hearts on a red cardstock and glued them on top of the telephone and to finish the card, I put Ranger Glossy Accents on the hearts, and small pink dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation Pink. I also used Wink of Stella Clear Brush Pen on the “Hello” sentiment for added glitter.
I hope you like this week’s project. Thanks for taking the time to read and see you on my next post.🌸
