Today I’m sharing my second guest designer post for Spellbinders, highlighting the Perfect Match Collection by Debi Adams.
My card today features the fun Twisted stamp and die set. I decided to make a card for my nephew, who loves pretzels! I also included some purple on the card, which is his favourite colour.
I love to add texture to my cards, whilst still keeping the design clean and simple. Adding tone on tone die cuts to a background is a great way to do this. I die cut lots of pretzels from white card, and adhered them all over the front of a square card base. Although some of them will eventually be covered up by other elements, it helps to have an even background layer.
I cut a smaller square from white card, then stamped a sentiment from the stamp set at the bottom. I layered this with foam adhesive over a piece of purple patterned paper to give a nice border edge of colour.
Next, I stamped the mustard bottle image from the stamp set, coloured it with copics, and die cut it with the coordinating die.
I die cut three more pretzels – two from light brown card and a third from a darker shade. I layered these together, offsetting the darker brown layer slightly to give a shadow effect. On the top layer, I added some shading with copic markers and a touch of sparkle to the embossed sprinkles with a glitter pen. I then added the bottle and pretzel to the card with foam tape to finish.
