Hello! It’s Lauren here to share with you a different way to use the Impossible Box, Valentine Add On die set. I used the add on’s to create an A2 (4.25×5.5) sized card. I didn’t start out with making a masculine card in my mind, but I think it would totally work as one.
When I saw the doily heart die, I knew I wanted to use it to create a background. So I die cut a bunch of the doily shapes from masking paper then adhered them onto a white A2 sized cardstock panel. I also added some of the little hearts that it also cut out into the white spaces.
I used the i-Press Burnishing tool to make sure that the shapes were all secured well to the white panel. Then I applied a Raspberry colored glitter paste all over the panel. Once the panel was covered in the paste, I carefully removed the masks. The i-Clik Pick is perfect to lift up an edge without smearing the paste. Then I used the i-Grip tweezers to remove the masks. I set the panel aside to dry.
While my panel was drying, I created the elements to go on the front. Using the smallest tag die from i-crafter’s Tags and Labels die set, I die cut 2 tags from red cardstock. I then cut out the Val-ent-tine, from one of the labels using the corresponding die from the Impossible Box, Valentine Add On die set. I also cut the Val-ent-tine letters in white. I adhered my 2 tags together, a little offset, then adhered the white letters into the openings.
I added a white satin ribbon from my stash to the hole at the top of the tags. I then threaded some beads from my stash to each end.
Once my background was fully dry, I trimmed it to just under 4.25×5.5 so there would be a white border from the A2 (4.25×5.5) card base showing all around, then I adhered it on. I also adhered my tags to the center of the panel. Then I created a few hearts using the hearts included in the Impossible Box Add On and the word “sweet” from glitter cardstock adhered them to the front to complete the look.
I had a fun time creating this card! I love the way it turned out, especially the background! I hope this inspires you to use your dies as masks to create fun cards!
