Clean & Simple Cards
This is Jasleen, and today I’ll be sharing a few clean and simple (CAS) cards I made using my newly arrived Sizzix products.
I’m showcasing three different ways of using Sizzix Thinlits die—Loyal Cherish (661065) by Pete Hughes. Its delicate design appealed to me and I thought it would be fun to try out different ways of using it on CAS cards.
Here’s my first card:

And here’s how I made it:--
I started off by smooshing some Tim Holtz distress inks(fired brick, spiced marmalade, squeezed lemon) on my craft sheet, adding some water and pressing the Loyal cherish die cut over it to get a beautiful watercoloured effect. Then, I gold embossed a couple of floral die cuts from Olivia by Prima. Over a card stock panel, I sponged some Memento Dandelion ink lightly over the area where I wanted my die cut to be, and splattered some coloured ink drops randomly over it. Then I arranged and adhered all of these die cuts over the card panel, added some sequins and finally stamped the sentiment. This panel was mounted over a 4 ½ by 6 inches folded card base.
Onto my second card:-

I started this one by sponging a couple of inks (Tim Holtz distress ink- peacock feathers and Memento-rose bud) over a card panel. Then I ran this panel through my big shot machine along with the Sizzix Thinlits die—Loyal Cherish (661065). So, that gave me a negative part of the die cut and the coloured die cut itself (which I will be using in my next card). For this card, I kept the negative part along with another die cut from a plain white card stock, which was then silver embossed. This silver embossed die cut was then fit into our negative, just like two pieces of a puzzle ;) This technique is known as Inlaid die cut technique.
I love the beautiful effect it gives.
And here’s my third card:-

This card was the quickest of the three. The Loyal Cherish die cut that we got while making our previous card found its home here. I simply started off by splattering some acrylic paint droplets using my paint brush over the Kraft card stock base. Adhered the couple of die cuts ( one coloured and the other plain vellum) over the base, added the smallest tag from the Tag collection die set with a stamped ‘hello’ over it, using a silver thread. Added a few pearls here and there and it was done.
I hope you liked the cards. Do you have a favorite amongst these three? Would love to know. Your suggestion, queries and feedback are most welcome. Just leave a comment below and I’ll get back as soon as I can.
That’s all from my end today. Will be back next week. :)
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week.
