I have been having so much fun playing with this Press ‘n Seal Technique. A couple of days ago I shared the first card I made … and look what I created today:
My favorite reason to use the Press ‘n Seal is with the layered stamps like on this card, which I shared on an earlier post.
You can see the video tutorial on making this card by clicking here.
At the end of this post, there is another video which will show how I made the following four cards!
1. Something for Baby technique card
Another reason to used this technique is when you want to play with different colors to see what you want your final card to look like. On this baby card, I wanted different blues and greens for the water.
I used the Striped Scallop Thinlit with Pacific Point to make the outline shape and attached that to the card. Next, I layered some Soft Sky, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point pieces.
When I was happy with my choices, I put the Press ‘n Seal over the water to pull up the shapes, added adhesive, and laid them back on the card.
Tip: The Multipurpose Liquid Glue is a great adhesive to use when you might want to “slide” things a bit if they don’t end up exactly where you wanted them.
2. Rose Wonder Bundle technique card
These cards were both made the same way – but look what a difference the paper makes! Both roses have a black base, but the rest changes.
For the card on the right, I used the Gold Glimmer Sheet to make a clean and simple, yet elegant wedding card. I wanted this card to be CAS so I just added the lines around the cut out square (using the Simply Scored Board) and a bit of gold ribbon.
For the other card, the rose is made up of Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango Card Stock.
I put the rose through the Big Shot three times to get all of these colors – so I will use the pieces to make three cards like this. Each will have the colors in different sections and all will look great!
3. You’re Sublime with those Little Letters Thinlits!
This adorable crab has a birthday wish for you!
Since this is such a fun card, I decided to have it be fun on the inside too. It opens like this:
It was fun to lay out the letters first so they would fit on the card the way I wanted them to … and then just use the Press ‘n Seal to keep them that way!
