I am doing a little sneak peeking at the new In Colors for 2014-2016. I am loving the color combination of Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey. They are very warm colors and they look so good together.
Let's dissect the card and see what all is new.
Are you wondering how I cut the tag?
Cut the card stock a smidge smaller than the framelit opening. On this tag it was a smidge less than 2-3/4". Thread the card stock through the framelit as shown above. Run it through your Big Shot with the point heading in first. Listen for the framelit cutting the edge. Once you hear the card stock being cut, stop and reverse it out of the Big Shot. This will prevent the impression of the framelit from showing on your tag.
I love the glittery center of the card. I use this idea a lot and it is so easy. Apply VersaMark ink directly on some Blackberry Bliss card stock. Cover the VersaMark ink with Irisdescent Ice embossing powder and then heat set it. If you are like me you will have lots of glittery strips on hand ready to add to your projects when you need just a little more.
