Clarity craft club lookback – let’s celebrate!

Hello crafty friends. If you read my blog last Sunday, you’ll know that I’ve reached 2022 in my journey back through Clarity’s craft club stamps, so I needed to think of something else to move on to. As it happens, I joined their monthly die club a few years ago so I’m going to work through those over the next few months, starting with ‘let’s celebrate’, #12 from December 2019.

I started by making my card blank, which I don’t usually do (I buy them in packs) but I wanted a coloured one with a fun fold. I cut red cardstock to make a 5×7 blank, then scored down the centre of the card front to fold it back on itself. I glued a piece of Clarity’s ‘Toscana’ designer card to the inside and to the folded front.

Next I trimmed down a piece of gold card to be just larger than the die and then cut it out. I attached it to a piece of the ‘Toscana’ that was the same size using Clarity’s double sided adhesive acetate (which is super sticky!). Obviously that meant that the cut out areas of the die were sticky, so I rubbed Pergamano glitter across it to cover the adhesive, then mounted it onto a square of the red card. It’s such a great effect as the glitter is translucent, so the colours of the designer card still show through.

I then attached the topper to the card front. This is where you have to be careful to make sure you glue the right area on the back of the topper as half of it will be sitting free – put glue on the wrong part of the topper and your card won’t open (ask me how I know…!)

I just added a few gold dots to finish – it really didn’t need anything else.

Here’s one of the card stood on my bookcase

Thanks for dropping in. I’m going to share this over at TicTacToe challenge as I picked up the elements in their right hand column – fold card, sparkle & fall (autumn) colours.
