I am head-over-heels in love with this new set called Greatest Hits. It is so much fun and so versatile with all of the fun sentiments and images! I can see myself reaching for this one again and again! It will be perfect for those pesky masculine cards that sometimes give us trouble! I will be sharing a few designs with feminine twists here and there as well, so stay tuned!
To begin my card, I used the new Concentric Circles stencil to sponge some ink onto a turquoise blue panel measuring 4 by 5 1/4 inches. Once that was done, I dry embossed the design from the new Musical Coverplate onto the panel. It gives it just the right amount of detail without overwhelming the design. Some of the other designers have die cut it on some amazing designs, so make sure you check those out.
Once the turquoise panel was sponged and embossed, I set it aside to get to work on the records, then sentiment strip and the record player needles. I wanted a bright and colorful card, so I made all of the circles out of rainbow colors and stamped the sentiments in black. The smaller records don't have sentiments, so I left those blank, which is perfect so that it didn't look too busy. I used the coordinating Greatest Hits SugarCuts to die cut everything. The needles are die cut out of brushed silver specialty paper for realism. I used silver brads to secure through the holes for some added detail.
The sentiment is heat embossed in silver and attached over a piece of vellum that is wrapped around the turquoise base using foam squares. I spritzed the entire piece using Shimmer Spray. I really should have waited to do this after I photographed it, especially with the black paper, but I was just too excited! LOL! It looks awesome in real life. I added some white colored pencil to the records to enhance the shine. Debbie Olsen did this recently and it looked incredible, so I want to give her the credit! She is amazing! I had so much fun on this design! Thanks for fluttering by!
