Hi everyone, it's Hilary here today with a You and Me Glitter Drop-Ins Card for you focusing on the Sizzix Framelits Card w/ Banners, 3-D Drop-Ins by Stephanie Barnard. This is a fun sweet, very unexpected card with a fun pop-up in the middle. I hope you enjoy!
There's a couple fun ways to use this set, there is also a "Birthday" banner, and some small little flowers along with banners and hearts, so you can really go crazy! It's all up to your imagination. I chose to keep it simple using the "you & me" sentiment.
The pop-up that is in the middle is scored down the center, so the Card w/ Banners, 3-D Drop-Ins lays flat for shipping, but really, how sweet is this banner in the middle.
To create this card first gather some pretty pattern paper, and some glitter cardstock. Next, using your Sizzix Big Shot and a Magnetic Platform, take a Cutting Pad and lay it on top, then lay your pattern paper followed by the 'frame' of the card, along with whichever banner you'd like to use, place those framelits cutting side down onto the pattern paper, lay another Cutting Pad on top and run it through your Big Shot.
Then lay the die cut card onto a backing piece of pattern paper, thats been cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and adhere the two layers together. I machine stitched the layers together. Next die cut the corresponding top banner, and your sentiment using white cardstock and glitter cardstock and adhere to the center of the banner.
Finish by adding a strip of hearts, a pink button and a small cardstock sticker. Then for some contrast, add a piece of black ribbon to the left of the card. This brings out the small black print of the pattern paper I used.
For the front of the You and Me Glitter Drop-Ins Card, I added a fun die cut. I kept the front simple so the focus would be on the fun surprise inside.
I hope you've been inspired to create a fun 3-D card such as this. They are not only fun to make, but fun to give as well.
Have a great day everyone. :)
