Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today with a little "You + Me" Sizzix Inspiration, spotlighting the new You & Me Thinlits set, by KI Memories®. I created a little card using the male & female shadow figures that are so popular today, along with the sweet little rainbow that accompanies the set. I hope you enjoy!
I used a couple of other Framelits sets along with a texture fade for this card.
To create this card, first cut and fold white heavyweight card stock that when folded measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and set aside. Cut another panel of white card stock measuring 4 x 5 1/4 and emboss using the Courtyard & Trellis Texture Fades embossing folder with a pair of cutting pads and the Multipurpose Platform open to tab 1. Next step is to cut pattern paper and adhere across the middle of the card front as shown. Then using another miscellaneous scrap of pattern paper, die cut using a frame from the Enchanted Framelits set by Prima using a pair of cutting pads and the Magnetic Platform. you can stitch around the outside if you like, or just adhere to the middle of the card. Next die cut the male & female shadow figures from the You & Me Thinlits set, using black card stock, and adhere them to the center of the card frame as shown.
To die cut your rainbow, use heavyweight card stock and pattern paper, and adhere to the top of the card using pop dots. This rainbow is part of the You & Me Thinlits set, and it's very helpful to use the magnetic platform when using Thinlits and Framelits.
Your die cutting sandwich when using the Thinlits is as follows. First lay your Magnetic Platform on the base of your Sizzix Big Shot. Then lay a cutting pad down, the material you will be cutting, the Thinlits you are using, cutting side down, and the other cutting pad on top. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot, for the perfect result.
To finish the card, die cut the sentiment, from the You & Me set, and the tag in which it is adhered to from the Tag Collection set by Tim Holtz. Adhere the letters onto the tag, then adhere the tag to the card front. Adhere a small ribbon bow and cork heart, then adhere the entire card front to the card using glue dots.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope I've inspired you to create this sweet little "You + Me" card.
Have a great day!!
