Good morning blog friends! Well . . .with all the excitement of the sneak peeks this week, I wanted to show you what happens . . . when one sneak peek meets another!! (I love it when that happens!!) Earlier this week Spellbinders revealed Card Creator – a set of die templates that gives you perfect layers for your A2 card. For CHA, JustRite Papercrafts is releasing a Christmas Background that matches the Card Creator system and you get to see the sneak peek right now :-). It conveniently has borders that match the cut lines on Card Creator so that from one background you can cut multiple layers with Card Creator, pop each layer up to give them dimension, add a sentiment and your card is complete. That’s my kind of easy. I’ve been hankering to play around with this, and this stamp was very recently pried from the hands of my sweet mailman.
Now you know I make big cards so I was absolutely thrilled to see that I could still use Card Creator for my layers. Measuring 5.5″ wide by 6.5″ tall, I used Card Creator for my uppermost layers and for the inside of the card. I like really tight layers so I used both Spellbinders™ Matting Basics A and Spellbinders™ Matting Basics B. And for the extra special touch I stamped my sentiment on an accent piece from Spellbinders™ Fancy Ribbon Threader Card Creator. By looking at the stamp, you can see how the layers separate out – depending on which Card Creators you choose you can cut the frames different ways. Thanks for letting me show you how I got it inky!!
Here’s a better picture so you can see how the layers break.
I took one of the left over negative frames and used it on the inside of the card. Below is the Merry Christmas Background Stamp I’m Sneak Peeking today.
