Grid Technique Card


I was busy today preparing for my Technique Class on Wednesday…and this is one of the techniques we'll be learning.  The photo really doesn't do it justice!  I sprayed the card with Gold Shimmer Paint and the sparkle is sooooooooo pretty!


Here's how I did it…take a piece of cardstock (mine is 3 x 4) and place it in your paper cutter, angled like shown below, up to the 1/2" mark and score.

I drew lines on the one shown below so you can see them – just keep moving your cardstock over a 1/2" at a time and scoring your lines.  Make sure you keep your score lines lined up with the lines on your paper cutter – shown by the arrows below.

Turn your cardstock the opposite way and keep scoring - like shown below – again, keeping the score lines lined up with the lines on paper cutter – shown by the arrows.

Here's the layer – ready for stamping! I sponged in with ink to help show the grid lines.

And WAAA LAAA!  Stamp your images, sponge the edges, put your card together and mist it with Gold Shimmer Mist!!!


Shimmer Paint Mist: Use a hand sanitizer fine mist bottle (or any fine mist bottle) filled with rubbing alcohol.  The hand sanitizer is .25 fl oz.  Add 6-7 drops of shimmer paint.  Shake and mist your card from about 15”.
