When Get Well isn't the right sentiment.
The cards are 'notecard' sized- that is,4⅛ x 5⅞,( 10.5x15 cm).
This is half an A4 sheet, and depending how you cut your cardstock achieves a different orientation of card. If you take a sheet of A4 and cut it across the width, that gives you either a sidefold portrait card, or a landscape top fold card.
Cutting the length of the cardstock gives you either a topfold portrait card, or a landscape sidefold one.
These cards are made using the top fold portrait orientation.
Often, a different orientation will suit your card better, or even make the same card look entirely different.
All backgrounds have been done with Alcohol inks on Yupo, with the addition of some foil pressed onto the 'sticky' areas where the ink spreads out. A good You Tube Video from KWerner on this technique HERE
All the stamping was done using Versafine Clair Nocturne, which alone will NOT dry on this surface.
You could use Memento,or Archival which will.
I added clear embossing powder, then heat set it. To do this you need to really let your gun get hot before starting to heat your project, keep the gun moving and stop as soon as it's raised. You may get a little bending of the Yupo, but sticking it down with DST, or Tape Roller cures that.
The stamp is called Always Remember, by Inkylicious.
I die cut it with a Stitched Rectangles die with rounded corners, and then die cut the two next sizes up from toning cardstock.
I matted onto the first layer, then added a layer of fun foam to the back before matting onto the second layer, then added the whole topper to a card base I'd covered with a toning paper from my DP paper mountain!
Then I rounded the bottom corners to match the panels.
I finally added a few sparkly gems with a dab of Glossy accents, just adding 3 or 4 to each one.
I then used a different stamp, also from Inkylicious, called Live Life.
