Valentine’s Day may have come and gone but it’s never too late to show some love to a friend. PWA Designer Michelle McCarthy created an atc with so much detail and interest I had to ask her to share the “how to” and she quickly fired back an entire tutorial with pictures and everything! Woweee! Be sure to read all the way to the end because Michelle shows how to create that cool background!
CS for top
CS for background
Any colored Micro beads
O'so Sticky Tape or sheet
2. Turning punch negative upside down, cover opening with piece of O'so tape, leaving front side with exposed tape.
5. Now using your scissors, trim away around your punch, thus creating a frame around your micro beads shape. And there you go, O'So simple!
Bonus! Technique for background of ATC:
1. It really has to be seen in person for you to totally get the effect. All you do is add any shape or piece (I used the punch out from the heart I used to create the upper technique).
3. Run the whole piece through the die cutter with a chosen Embossing Folder. Now sit back and admire the technique! It's embedded into the larger piece of CS and is very cool!
Thanks so much Michelle! I LOVE this card!!
