More Color Blocking with the Expressions Thinlits

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a card from one of my Technique Geek Classes (click HERE to learn more). You can view that card HERE.

Today's card was created in the process of making samples for that class. I think it is just so cool!  There is no stamping on this card, I used the Big Shot, Big Shot Dies and my Stampin' Trimmer with the Rotary Attachment.


I started by taping various widths of card stock together and trimming the set to my desired size.  I used the "love" expression thinlit, from the Expressions Thilints set shown on page 36 of the Holiday Catalog, and ran it through the Big Shot with a strip of waxed paper so the die would release the greeting easily.  I ran the same greeting through again with Whisper White.  I placed the Whisper White "love" in the negative space so it would really pop.

I also cut a heart out of my strip piece and then cut another heart out of Strawberry Slush card stock.  The Strawberry heart was popped up in the negative space with a Stampin' Dimensional and I added a So Saffron Candy Dot for more interest.

The bottom edge of the card was trimmed with the Rotary Attachment for the Stampin' Trimmer using the Small Scallop Blade.  I added a skinny strip of Coatsal Cabana to the inside of the card so the color would show when the card is closed.
