Pear Blossom Press & Pink & Main Collaboration


Today's card is part of a collaboration with Pear Blossom Press and Pink & Main! I am superrrrrr excited to share my card!

I started by stamping out the mugs on Pink & Main's Need to Venti stamp set and cutting them out with the matching die set. I stamped with Ink On 3 Black Out ink and colored with Copic markers.

Next, I used the Pink & Main Leafy Slim Line Die with a Sparkle Sheet in Construction, I backed this with vellum. I also cut the Leafy Slim Line die out with a deep blue card stock, I filled in the exterior pieces surrounding the leaves with these.

After that, I worked on getting the "guts" built. I started by laying out the EZ-Lights, I back them and the Power Pack base with Glue Dots. In order to keep the wires from showing through the vellum, I used a black washi tape to mute the colors and secure the wires, of course! 

I used the Double Thick Foam Tape that Pear Blossom Press carries (life changing!) to back the card, normally I use it as is, but because the lines of this die are SO thin, I cut it down into super skinny strips. In order to kinda trap the light in the areas I wanted them, I also enclosed each area so that no light escaped.

Next, I stamped the little leaves from Need to Venti out in a dark yellow ink, on a lighter yellow cardstock and die but them. I also stamped out the sentiment "Thanks a latte" (so cute!) on The Stamp Doctor's Tag #1 Stitched Dies in a brown ink. I stamped out "Push Here" from a Lawn Fawn stamp set on the yellow cardstock and used one of the small leaf dies to cut it out too!

Tada! I'm obsessed!

Lit up with the lights on!

Lit up with the lights off!

I move the card part way through the video so I apologize!
