Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m going to share a twist to the SPOTLIGHT Technique with the New Horizons Designer paper. You can catch a replay of last nights Facebook LIVE where I showed “how” I cut and then let my guests choose which one they wanted to see put together. The great thing is … today you will see both cards finished off and ready to send!
Let’s begin with the video …
Now that you’ve seen the video, let’s take a closer look at those cards. I’ll start with the initial and simple SPOTLIGHT card. Here we just cut out a piece of our designer paper, and then the coordinating Blackberry Bliss cardstock as a mat.
The greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set … I think this is a must in your collection, so many amazing greeting for so many occasions. I put the link for you below.
Now we are going to “step it up” a bit or adding a twist to the SPOTLIGHT Technique by adding another layer (or two) ….
On the video I showed “how” I put this together but what I didn’t say is that the reason I used the Basic White as a mat, was to highlight the white that I used when heat embossing the greeting. Besides … it really does make the “SPOTLIGHT” pop!!
Did you notice the addition to the vellum? It’s the Layering Designs Vellum and can be found in the Annual Catalog. I think it really adds to the card … especially if you are sending this card “across the miles”!!
I love highlighting techniques that were used many years ago and we tend to forget … obviously they were popular for a reason. I love the SPOTLIGHT Technique and with the New Horizons paper.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope it’s a good one.
Here is a list of the ingredients used for today’s cards … excluding the New Horizons paper as it has already retired.
