My First Design Team Card For The Can You Case It Challenge 126 – Die Challenge


CYCI #126Hello! You might have seen the good news on my Facebook page, I’m a new Design Team member for the Can You Case It Challenge blog. Woohoo 😀

This weeks Can You Case It challenge 126 is a die challenge. So grab your favorite die and submit a card. Who knows, maybe you’re going to be this weeks DT pick? 😉

For me this challenge was the perfect excuse to grab my honeycomb die and create a simple summer card. You might know that I like to get messy while making a card. It’s no different this time 🙂 . I grabbed my Ken Oliver Color Bursts and created an orange/ yellow background on Ranger water color paper. The only thing I don’t like when using Color Bursts: the paper has to dry… Good thing that I had to prepare the other parts of the card!

I die cut the words “hi there” from white and black card stock and adhered them together, so the black card stock looked like a shadow behind the letters. I also stamped and die cut the two flowers and the bee from the same Simply Defined set . Unfortunately, not all stamps of the set are available anymore.

I kept the flowers and bee simple and just added a shadow with Copic markers C0 and C2. Now I die cut the water colored background with the honeycomb die. After two tries with the regular cutting plates, I had to switch to the precision plate… I adhered the background to a white card base and added some of the honeycomb inlays back into the pattern, but entirely random. I also “colored” some of the empty combs with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.

At the end I added foam tape to the letters and the bee, adhered them to the card base and placed the two flowers around the letters as well.
