Sadly, powder blue tuxes have been put out to pasture, and yet, not THIS substance...
treat cups for reasons not even known to ME, my nearly asleep brain put that STUFF into THOSE CUPS, and your tutorial for today was born.
First, make a white card base, punch a 1.75" circle, insert your Sweet Treat Cup and put a little gel into your treat cup. Since this heinous affront to hairstyling comes in all sorts of garish colors, you can use it for any occasion. I of course, chose blue, and you'll see why.
I put too much in the first few times I tried, so be sparing. It doesn't move, so you can look from the other side before adding more. Also, you don't want it all over the cup, so be careful when squishing it into there. I put my cup down on top of my stamped image first so that I knew how much room I had to play with.
It's pretty in this setting, yes? Has kind of a little Hope Diamond vibe working, it does. Now look closely at the pic. The next step is to remove the backing from the adhesive on the treat cup and attach a 2.5 x 2.5 piece of window sheet. This seals the gel in there. Before you put it down though, add a glue dot on each corner to tack the corners to the back side of your card front.
Next, take an empty cup, put it on top of your image and trace around it. Cut the image out, and attach to the back of the window sheet so that your image shows through the cup to the front of your card. Mine is the whale from Animal Stories.
Now on my card, I cut a 4 x 5.25 piece of white cardstock to cover all that stuff up so the inside of my card is all clean and pretty.
Finally, I used the Swirly Big Shot die to cut the "waves" out of Ballet Blue, using both the positive and negative space, and Smarty Pants for the greeting.See - you're never too old to do goofy stuff with hair gel.
Loveyameanitbye. Oh wait - gratuitous kitty pic. :)
