This is a real simple card today and is using the Hello die I used earlier in the week. This was one of my Demo's form The pick of the day shows with Sue Wilson and I used it as a quick demo.
I simple die cut the Hello expressions die in the centre of an A5 piece of card stock (finished card is 5x7") without the outline die in place. Next I stuck a piece of acetate behind this and added a mount cut with the outline die that matches and is included with the Hello.
To make the striped background I added blobs (there no better word lol) of PVA pearl glue in Cobalt and silver on the reverse of the acetate and using a piece of scrap card I dragged the PVA across the acetate to create this striped effect. I sealed the piece by adding a further piece of acetate and foam mounted it onto a piece of Periwinkle card stock before adding to the finished card.
I think this is a great additional use for your colours of PVA glue pearl form Cosmic Shimmer as you can alter combinations and effects to get loads of different translucent backgrounds.
