Aaaaand here's the other card I promised. Told ya it was bright! I took the opportunity to try the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, and I'm impressed! First of all because it made adhering the greeting so easy - no messy glue blobs. But also because it seems like there were less "whiskers" around the finished die cut. I don't know about you, but those whiskers bug me, and I'm always trying to pull them off with tweezers. (No, I'm not referring to my chin, although those bug me, too!)
The adhesive sheets are 6" x 12" and there are twelve in a pack. I found I could cut the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die twice on a sheet that was 3-1/2" x 6". The Basic Black cardstock was cut the same size and adhered to the adhesive sheet by removing one side of the backing paper.
I ran the die through the Big Shot three times, forwards and backwards, moving it each time to a different area of the cutting pad to ensure a good cut. After cutting one greeting out, there was room for the other.
Helpful hint: Use the point of your Paper Snips to slide under the edge of the backing paper. It really helps to get it started, so you can carefully peel the rest off. So easy!!!
The Lemon Lime Twist Fresh Florals DSP stands out against the black, doesn't it?! Just that pop of color makes such a difference.
The Hooray balloon was stamped first with Basic Black ink, the the polka-dot balloon was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist. Add a baker's twine string, pop it up on dimensionals, and you're done!
