I loved making these cards! The Superhero Images from Pretty Papers Pretty Ribbons were fantastic and tons of fun to manipulate and print out, and Tombow adhesives perfect for putting everything together. I’m a newbie to digital images and found out how easy it was! I did learn the importance of using good bright white paper to print out, it sure makes a difference. This first card shows Wonder Woman on Spring Fling Chevron paper. The Dots Adhesive was used to attach the panels to the card, and Foam Tabs to make the ‘Thanks for the Great Year’ panel dimensional. I also added Aqua Liquid Glue using the fine point dispenser around the ‘Kaboom!’ and sprinkled with glitter.
After printing the image out, I used an Irojiten Colored Pencil to add a blue shadow around the words and the hero figure to help them ‘pop’ off the background print.
The second card used images from the Superhero Collection and the Spring Fling Chevron paper. Layering the images before printing was easy, but I also printed elements, such as the ‘Zap!’ and ‘Bam!’ separately so I could cut them out and adhere with the Foam Tabs for great dimension. Because the card was for a teacher I found a great Batman quote to add to the inside panel. For this card I also used the Dots Adhesive, which was perfect for adding adhesive to the detailed cut out images. Did I mention Pretty Papers Pretty Ribbons also has cutting files for all their graphics? Sweet!
