|It's a Girl! Card |
Designed by Martha Lucia Gomez
Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here with you. Today I want to share an It's a Girl Card that I made using one of my favorite colors of Makin's Clay®: red, and some special tools. For this I created red dresses using clay cutters and tools from Makin's Clay®. Let me share with you how to made this.
Product list:Makin’s Clay®

Beacon™ 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue
Oh Baby Stamp Set by Joy Clair
Puffy Clouds by Memory Box
Sizzix® Big Shot™
VersaFine Onyx Ink and Distress Ink.
The first step is creating the embellishments for your card. For this, take small amounts of red clay and roll it to about 1/8" thick. Use the Dress cutters to cut assorted sized dresses from the rolled clay. Let dry.

Using white clay and the Ultimate Clay Extruder™and round disc #5, extrude clay and let dry slightly, then cut and gently flatten to create the buttons to decorate your dresses.
You can make the holes of the button using the Fine Point. If your clay is fresh you don't need any additional adhesive to attach the buttons. If the clay has dried, use a clear drying adhesive such as Beacon's 3-in-1.

To create the clouds, roll a very thin sheet of white clay. Let it dry and then die cut with clouds dies and the Sizzix® Big Shot™.
Give color to the clouds using Distress Ink applied with a blending tool.

Create the base of your card and a second layer using Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock. Stamp your sentiment over the whisper white layer using VersaFine Onix. Choose the clay dresses and clouds you want to use to highlight on your card front and mount the embellishments using Beacon™ 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.
