Quick and Easy Religious Cards – Brand-new Ai Dies!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using the brand-new die Art Impressions Crosses Dies Set (5909) which includes 7 Cross Dies that are simply elegant and beautiful!

We are going to create two quick and easy religious cards! These cards can be used for baptisms, communions, sympathy cards, friendship or anything else you might like.

We can begin by embossing a beautiful background using the Sizzix “Lacey” 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from some white heavyweight cardstock. The card base will also be white, and this will give the card a simple yet elegant look!

Let’s also create a standard A2 card base and cut off a small section of the front of the card. This way we can add a pretty pink metallic paper on the inside of the card that will show from the front of the card.

Now we can die cut this beautiful cross from that same metallic cardstock and two more from some white cardstock. Let’s stack these together for a nice thick cross with lots of dimension!

We can cut the embossed panel down to size (keeping the leftover piece for the second card). Before we attach this to the card let’s add some matching pink velvet ribbon and tie a knot. I will show you a little trick for tying the ribbon easily and perfectly on your card.

Now we will add a strip of metallic cardstock to the inside of the card and for some added interest we will flip the card over and add some score lines from the back to the front. This adds an elegant detail to the card!

Finally, we can add a white heart embellishment to the center of the cross. You could also add some flowers, charms, or a sentiment here as well!

The second (bonus card) was created using the same products and the left-over piece from the embossed panel. I will give you all of the details and dimensions for both cards in today’s video!

Glittery Stained Glass Window Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a fun and easy glittery stained glass window card today! No glitters needed … just some pretty glitter papers! This is a great way to use some of those glitter papers that you may have been collecting and saving for a great project … or just hoarding like I do!

We will be using the brand-new Ai Stained Glass Window Set (5897) which includes this beautiful window and a lovely little church. The church would work great with all of your watercolor stamps to create a pretty scene!

We will stamp the stained-glass window onto some white cardstock and then onto our glitter papers. I’ll be using some blues, greens and yellows. This color combination was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge, and I thought these colors would be perfect for this window!

We will also stamp this window onto some clear acetate and emboss. For ink we will use a dark blue color with the Versafine Clair Ink Pad in Twighlight.

Now for the easy part! We will use some detail scissors to cut out sections of the stained-glass window from different colors of glitter paper. Keep in mind that you could really mix up the stained glass using some pretty pinks, purples, etc. It just depends on how much cutting you are willing to do! I thought I would keep to my color palette and keep the cutting really simple.

Next, we will cut a frame using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724) and then we will emboss this using the Tim Holtz Sizzix “Arched” Texture Fades Embossing Folder. This beautiful arched design will mimic the arch on the window and just bring everything together.

Now we can assemble the acetate onto the back of the frame and then overlay this over the glittery window! We can mount this frame onto a pretty yellow card base and add a sentiment using the Easter Journal 2024 Series 2 (5893) – Scripture Pack. This set includes two sheets of printed scripture sentiments that you can just die cut and easily add to your cards or journals!

Next, we can spatter the entire piece with some white ink … just be sure to protect the acetate area and the sentiment. Also, let’s add some blue ink around the edges of the card to frame the acetate window a bit better.

This card would be great for Easter or even a Sympathy, Confirmation, or Communion card. Please join us in this fun Color Challenge … we would love to see what you create!
