Bold Sentiment Cards by Lorena

Welcome back to our celebration of 17 Turtles Digital Cut files!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for another dose of inspiration on how to combine SRM products and the awesome 17 Turtles digital files? Lorena here with a couple of cards using the This is Magic cut file and lots of SRM goodies, too! The cut file I'm using is chocking full of lovely script words that are perfect both for cards and scrapbook layouts.

Here's my first card:

I started creating a rainbow background using SRM's Punched Pieces (medium size). Next, I die cut the word happy from the This is Magic cut file, covered it in embossing ink and hear embossed it using a black sparkling embossing powder. You should see how much it shines in real life!!! To complete the sentiment, I used a sticker from Sentiment/Thinking of You. I adhered the stickers to a piece of cardstock and made some very detailed trimming around it.

For the second card, I started with a stenciled background. Of course, I made my own stencil using SRM's Heavy Weight Stencil Sheet. As I've said many times, I adore this product :)

This time I used the word Hello from the digital cut file and, like on the first card, I covered it with heat embossing powder. I added three layers of embossing powder and the result is fantastic! Looks like a giant enamel word! To complete the card I used a sentiment and a butterfly from We've Got Your Sticker/Hello. I love that this sheet has some white sentiments too!!! I also modified the butterfly center using a Copic marker and embellished it with rhinestones.

Creating these cards was super fun! One of the things I like the most about die cutting words from digital files is that you can make them the size you want. I hope you'll give this a try and have some fun combining digi files with SRM goodies! Thanks for visiting!
