Hanging Light Die Card by Melinda

Hello crafty friends,
My name is Melinda. I am super excited to be here today and be part of the 2018 Design Team for Cheapo Dies.  Like many of you, I love, love to craft but often find myself on a limited budget. So finding great quality craft items at an affordable price is always a big deal!  I hope my time here will encourage you to check out and invest in what Cheapo Dies has to offer!  I will be sharing every Tuesday! For my inaugural project, I created a card using the hanging light exclusive die. Here’s my project.

Hanging Light Die Card by Melinda Beltran
My card is a standard A2 size. I used some patterned papers from some paper stacks in my stash. My card is of white cardstock and top folding.

I started by cutting out the Hanging Light Die I used from some plain white cardstock. I then used my Versamark ink pad and embossed some Stampendous moonstone embossing powder onto it. I repeated the process twice so that I would have a nice thick layer of embossing powder on the die cut.

Here's a little bit closer picture to show the thickness of the die cuts.

I used the oval scalloped die to cut out the thinking of you sentiment. I used the scalloped rectangle die for one of the mats. I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops Gray Mist for a subtle extra touch.

I used some Robin's Nest Cotton Candy Dew Drops for a decorative touch at the top. I also used some Gray ink to ink the edges of the larger patterned paper mat.

I added a final touch of a cute bow with some seam binding ribbon.
