It's Try Me Tuesday with My Creative Time, and today we are making cards using dies to make our card bases! I used one of the tags from Tag Dies for my base by folding my white cardstock in half and placing the fold beneath where the hole in the tag cuts out. Doesn't it make a cute card base? Then I tried something new: embossing paste! I rubbed some Hero Arts Butter Bar ink onto my kraft mat and stirred in a little Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste. Then I used the Heidi Swapp Polka Dot 6x6 Stencil to get the fun yellow polka dots onto the card base.
To get the fun chipboard effect with the balloons, I used the Stitched Party Dies and cut the balloons from Papertrey Ink coasters and then layered another layer from Echo Park's Splendid Sunshine 6x6 paper pad. Some Glossy Accents adhered the hemp "strings" to the balloons. The sentiment, from Vintage Sentiments is stamped on a die cut made with one of the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.
