Die Cut & Embossed Cards by Zsoka Marko


Saturday, October 17, 2020

  Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by today to share my latest projects I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team. This time I've made a couple of cards with the Go the Scenic Route collection as well as some other lovely products from Paige & WeR Memory Keepers. Have you seen her Metal Dies Set and Embossing Folders?! My card making loving heart got super excited when I discovered these products, so obviously I had to have them! They are all soooo Paige I think!

These are really simple cards that you can create quite fast. I started out by die cutting 6 hearts from white cardstock - 3 for each card. I then layered them up to get a nice dimensional piece.

I chose various patterned papers so I could fill the hearts with rainbow colors. I then die cut those pieces too. I adhered the white hearts onto a piece of heavy weight cardstock and fussy cut them out. I added the colorful pieces back in place.

Then I created the card bases. I used a floral paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad for my background on one of the cards and the peach ledger Paper 22 on the other. I also embossed a white panel, added foam tape to it and adhered it to the ledger paper background.

I added foam tape (or rather craft foam - I like to use foam sheets for big areas and shapes) to my hearts and glued them in place.

I then embellished the cards - I actually kept embellishing to a minimum because I didn't want to cover up all the colors. I used a couple of butterflies that I fussy cut out from Paper 20 on this card as well as a Cardstock Stickers for sentiment. On the other card I added a few flowers - I decided to add Floral Die Cuts in the colors that were in the heart beneath them, so that I wouldn't lose the rainbow.

To finish off the cards, I added Enamel Dots and twine. That's it! Easy peasy right?

I've also filmed my process, for the first time ever. I've been getting requests for years but I just was not up for it, mainly because technology is my worst enemy. Also, because I'm not a performer. I freeze. Stage fright, whatnot. So this video will be far from great, but I hope I'll get better with practice. I won't promise I'll have a video for all my projects, because I don't think I could keep up. Now with corona, my boyfriend works from home, so he is literally around all the time and I just can't speak to myself when anyone is at home. It's the weirdest feeling! So I have to wait for him to go grocery shopping haha! Anyway, watch it if you want to see how I made these - you can totally turn off the sound, I won't be offended :) https://youtu.be/PQGaB6hoFn4

  3. So fantastic Zsoka. The embossing looks so nice under the heart on that card. I also really like the depth created on the hearts by cutting 3 and stacking them. I must remember to do that too. Thanks for the inspiration, I mentioned I also have this die and only used it once so far. 🥰K
