Card Inspiration | Absolutely Wonderful

September 24th, 2012 by Avital

Card by creativity Prompt

I am taking another class from Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner. This time I’m taking ‘Kick Start’, which is all about boosting your creativity.

I don’t want to reveal any inside secrets… but Jennifer shares a tip (which involves a post it note and new products) that helps to come up with creative ideas to use new products. This post-it secret also helps in pruning your shopping cart, while shopping…

Anyhow, I used it with my new Absolutely die-cut (designed by Kristina Werner for Simon Says Stamp) and came up with the idea to use two die cuts on one panel so I can have both a negative and a positive impression of a word. The different shadows the words cast are really interesting.

I lined up both dies on my cardstock panel and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I prevented movement by temporarily sticking the dies to the cardstock with removable tape.

Side note: I looked for a word with no repeating letters to go with ‘absolutely’ and ‘wonderful’ won… – It isn’t necessary as I could use place holders for repeating letters and run them through the Cuttlebug a couple times.

To spruce the card up a little bit I used some washi tape stripes, an embroidery floss and a button.

SUPER simple, but I really love the clean and simple result.

How about you, what do you think?

I added a few other alphabet dies at the end, to give you some more options :)
I used the one by Papertrey Ink that I bought a while back.

    I love your card, I have been trying to do something similar but have not been successful.
    I love negative titles!! and your addition of washi tapes and floss is perfect!
    Brilliant!

      Thank you! PTI’s dies are a bit on the ‘fat’ side. I wish there was a set of individual alphabet dies that are more to scale with the ‘Absolutely’ die. These are perfect for journaling cards and also to create greetings… Maybe I need to find a die-cut manufacturer and come up with my own line of dies :)
