Add a Little Dazzle Design Team!
Hi everyone! I’m really pleased to tell you about a new Design Team I’ve joined. It’s called Add A Little Dazzle and they are a company that (amongst other things) sell these amazingly coloured metal sheets.
Metal isn’t something I’ve worked with before but it’s really really awesome- easy to cut with scissors, die cut and emboss ..and the shaping? A cinch.
You can see here some close ups- the challenge this week is a colour one- to use Baby Blue and Wondrous White. The challenge is up here.
We don’t have a UK retailer ( yet) but I’d order them from the US now I’ve actually got to creating with it.
I’ve die cut the letters using the Louie’s alpha die from Lawn Fawn and the snowflakes are from Die-namics. Once die cut, you can bend and shape so easily and get some beautiful dimension.
Monica from Add A Little Dazzle was asking about envelopes to fit with this card as it’s obviously ‘off the page’! Well- I never let an envelope size bother me- I’d simply slide it into a 6×6 envelope. If you were wanting to create these sorts of cards, the most efficient way of designing a solution is to work out the size of envelope you want to send it in and work backwards from that point. I’d also slot in a little tissue paper either side of the raised area to protect it during transit.
Hope you’ve enjoyed something a little different. You’ll be seeing a whole ton of metal ( ha ha!) from me from now on.
See you soon,
When I’ve stopped stroking the metal! xx
