PTI MIM #151: Drop Shadow Die Cuts

Betsy Veldman showed us how to double cut our dies and offset the layers to create some depth for PTI's Make It Monday here.

Since I needed another teen birthday card for another young man, I chose the "happy" die from Pretty Peonies, the numbers from By The Numbers dies and the "th" using Block Alphabet dies. My card base of SU's basic gray was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and PTI's Polka Dot Basics II and corners rounded. A Basic Black layer was then covered with Soft Stone embossed with the Woodgrain Impression Plate. For "Happy" and "th" I used the same two colors but alternated them: Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides and stamped the design on the bottom layers using Ocean Tides ink. The "13" was die cut using SU Bravo Burgundy and Soft Stone with a design from Half & Half stamped in Bravo Burgundy on the bottom layer and popped up using SU dimensionals. For the finishing touch I punched three small stars from Basic Black and added Glossy Accents to make them shine.
