Joy To the World Card
Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Tyra Babington Cycle 12
Hello! It's Tyra and I'm back this month sharing techniques using the Cut 'N' Boss and the eBrush to create beautiful holiday cards! Last week I shared how to make a holiday wreath card. This week I'm going to show you how make a holiday-themed steel die the star of the show! AND I'm using the exact same supply list I shared last week! Here it is again just in case you missed it!
Supplies: Craftwell Cut 'N' Boss, eBrush, Steel wreath die, Copics (Greens: YG63, YG17, G05 Reds: R35, R39), heavyweight card stock (at least 80 lb), tacky and foam adhesives. Step 1: Use Cut 'N' Boss recipe A + B + A + Material + Cutting Die + D to create a die cut of the steal die onto heavy card stock. Step 2: Carefully separate the die cut from steel die. Step 3: Prepare your work surface for the awesome eBrush, using scrap paper. Select a lighter and darker shade of the same color. Insert the lighter color shade into the eBrush first. Step 4: Apply lighter shade to die cut. Step 5: Apply darker shade to die cut. Step 6: If there are smaller pieces you wish to color simply use a sticky note to secure smaller die cuts and prevent them from blowing away once the eBrush is turned on! Step 7: Adhere die to a card base cut and sized to 4.25 by 5.5. inches. For added color I eBrushed a smaller piece of card stock in three shades of blue to create an ombre effect and embossed the background to add texture. I hope these festive designs have inspired you today! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
