Taylored Expressions May Release: Let Freedom Ring

Thursday, May 5, 2016

Hello Taylored Expressions Fans,

Happy Thursday! We made it, release day is here! I hope you enjoyed Sneak Peek Week and have been inspired by the Taylored Expressions Design Team. Today, I am sharing with you a card using Taylored Expressions' Marching On silhouette die and Fireworks embossing folder.

To create this card, I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Sugar Cube cardstock and adhered double-sided adhesive to the panel. I then cut a piece of foil, slightly larger than the panel, and carefully adhered silver foil. Next, I ran my foiled panel through my Sizzix Big Kick (this applied even pressure to the panel and lessened the likelihood of air bubbles). Once this was done, I gently removed the foil sheet to reveal a foiled panel. I then took the foiled panel and placed it in the Taylored Expressions' Fireworks embossing folder and ran it through the Big Kick again. Using Tim Holtz's sanding block, I gently removed foil from the raised embossed portions of the panel to reveal adhesive. I then applied red, white and blue glitter and burnished the panel using my finger. Lastly, I die cut the silhouette image using the Marching On die and heat embossed the "Let Freedom Ring" and "Celebrate" sentiments. Baker's twine and an enamel dot completed this card.

Thank you for stopping by; however, the fun is not over yet. Head over to the Taylored Expressions Blog for a complete listing of design team participants and product information. Happy crafting.
