Ahhhh, ‘45s and albums, remember those? An Eighties gal through and through, I had to try out this great stamp set from Avery Elle called For the Record and put my own “spin” on it. How fun is that huge record?
I wanted to capture the shininess of a fresh new album, so I heat embossed the record using Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossing powder. The stamp set has multiple sentiments to add to the front so I chose “one of a kind”. The embossing really adds a realistic texture to the stamped image. I used the separate die set to die cut the record (and sentiment later on.)
For this next step, I kind of experimented. I wanted the background of the card to have a fun laser beam style like some album covers back in the Eighties sometimes had, so I grabbed some neon inks and blended a trapezoid using some Post-It tape. I settled on Hero Arts Neon Yellow and Green inks to blend.
I ended up trimming out my trapezoid and adhering it to the front of an A2 sized white notecard arranging my record and sentiment over the top.
This was such a fun card to make, I hear my old record albums calling my name! Thanks so much for joining me today :).
