CAS card with a tutorial


Hi everyone. I am back with another CAS stamped card. I am sure you are looking at this card and thinking- Sue T.'s not telling the whole truth- do I see a die on this card? You would be right, I did use a die, but only as an embellishment and I used it in a different way. I wanted the focus on this awesome saying "peace, love and joy" .

This is a fabulous technique that I learned from Jennifer Maguire during the online Holiday card class. The class is over but you can still sign up and you will have access to all the videos and PDF's.

It seems complicated but it really isn't and once you learn it, you can crank out tons of these spectacular cards. They are especially perfect for last minute card making.

For this technique I used the Frostyville die with my Big Shot machine. Here is how I did it.


I opened my platform to page one and put one plate down. I put down the soft mat, then my card base, the die, second plate and a metal shim.


I ran this through my machine.


The image will be embossed but not cut through because of the soft mat under the card.



I sponged blue ink over the embossing to make it stand out and added stickles to make it glittery and added a sentiment. Quick and easy and ohhhh so pretty!


Now that isn't so hard huh? Just think of all the possibilities. here is another version of the same card i made using kraft card stock and white ink. Cool huh?


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will try this technique out for yourself!

I am wishing all of you the most blessed and happiest of holidays. I will be returning in January for more CAS stamped cards. I can't wait to see what Dave and Memory Box have in store for us in 2014!



Well, this is just awesome! I'm going to give this a try!!!


I really love this technique! What a great way to get more use of our dies! Could you please tell me what brand of soft mat and metal shim you used? Thanks for sharing and Happy Holidays!
