Hello. It's Clair, from Obstinate Pursuit, here with my first make for CAS-ual Fridays. I'm very excited to be joining such a wonderful team and cannot wait to 'meet' some of our lovely followers! I'm also looking forward to sharing some tips; tricks and techniques, so watch out for a video tutorial from me a little later in the month!
For today's make, I've used the Best Day Ever Fri-Die to full effect to create a little card with a big wow! (There's a Best Day Ever co-ordinating stamp set too, so don't forget to check that out too!) It may look clean and simple, but I became a little messy with my watercolours while I made it!
First, I took a standard, white C6 card base and created a splattered effect with three colours of green watercolors, and a little bit of gold gouache. (You can create a similar effect with inks and a little bit of water, if you don't have any watercolours!)
Once dried, I centred the Best Day Ever Fri-Die on the front of the card base and then ran it through my die-cutter. It cuts like a dream - no little burrs or fluffs!
I backed the die-cut with a gold foiled paper, to add some shine; then, I added all of the little 'inners' from the die to the centre of the letters. It really makes the sentiment stand out!
For the finishing touch, I added a few sequins and gems for a little bit of texture.
I'd love to hear all about your 'Best Day Ever'. Leave me a little story in the comments, so I can get to know you all a little better?
Please check us out on Instagram & Pinterest, and share your CAS-ual Friday creations with us, we love seeing what you have created! Have a lovely day!
