I’m going to show you how to make a mixed media card with a little acrylic paint, die cuts and Copper Metallic Cardstock 105# from

Friend angle Jeanne_Streiff

I started by thinning down white and turquoise acylic craft paint with a little water and splattering a pooling a little paint. The Copper Metallic 105#  worked perfectly for this technique. I cut the Copper Metallic Cardstock  4″x 51/4″.Friend 1 Jeanne_Streiff_edited-1

I then painted another piece of Copper Metallic 105# with some simple lines and dots leaving a little copper color showing through.Friend 1a Jeanne_Streiff_edited-1

I painted another piece of Copper Metallic  and  used a die cut to cut out a fun squiggle shape and heart from  Scribbles and Splats with my Sizzix Big Shot and Sizzix Magnetic Platform.Friend 2 Jeanne_Streiff_edited-1Friend 2a Jeanne_Streiff

I die cut my phrase (Thinlits Die Set Handwritten Love) from Copper Metallic 

Friend 3 Jeanne_Streiff

The heart (Sizzix Scribbles and Splats) was die cut using Classic White 100#

Friend 4 Jeanne_Streiff

I cut Classic White 100# 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (half sheet of 8 1/2 x 11″) and then scored and folded it in half for my card back. I attached the Copper panel and the die cuts as shown. I finished my card off with a few metallic sequins from Taylored Expressions.

Here is a closer look at my finished card.Friend close Jeanne_Streiff_edited-1
