Okay, you all just knew I had to try some ink blending to accent the elements of the A-maze-ing Card Kit!  Here’s how I created my project:

 

  1. Trim an A2, horizontal, top-folding card base from Smooth White Card StockScore at 4.25”, fold in half and perfect the crease with a Teflon Bone Folder.
  2. Die cut an image panel from Smooth White Card Stock using the rectangle die from Blueprints 1 Die-Namics.
  3. Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool, blend some Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress Inks onto a panel of Smooth White Card Stock.  Trim a narrow strip from this panel to fit the the length of the image panel.
  4. Trim a narrow strip of Black Licorice Card Stock the length of the image panel.  Stamp the sentiment from the You’re A-maze-ing Stamp Set using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and heat emboss it with White Detail Embossing Powder.
  5. Die cut a circle from the image panel using the Circle Shaker Window Die.  Temporarily position the image panel onto the card base.  Use the circle aperture as a guide to adhere the black maze shape to the card base using Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive.
  6. Die cut the Circle Frame Die from Smooth White Card Stock, and leave the resulting die cuts in place.  Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool, blend some Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress Inks around the circle frame die cut.
  7. Die cut the Circle Frame Die from double-sided adhesive.  Adhere the die cut to the back of the image panel, around the circle opening.  Adhere a Circle Shaker Pouch into the circle aperture.
  8. Drop a Maze Sphere into the Maze Shape.  Adhere the image panel to the card base using foam tape.
  9. Die cut a heart from a scrap of the previously ink blended panel.  Adhere it to the center of the Circle Shaker Pouch using tape adhesive.  Adhere the ink blended circle frame die cut to the image panel, around the outside of the assembled circle shaker pouch, using foam tape.
  10. Adhere the sentiment strip to the rainbow strip using tape adhesive.  Adhere the strips to the image panel using foam tape.
