Psychedelic YOU

Psychedelic You

Hi All!

Today’s card is pretty simple but the look is bold. It would make a great masculine card. I’ve stacked two die words of black and white many times (see these cards and this card as examples), but I thought it would be fun to add a few more colors to the mix. The stacking looks a little psychedelic, don’t you think?

I’ve used this die many times – it’s very practical. Here is a close-up of the die stacking:

Psychedelic You

I added some fog cardstock at the bottom to break up all the white space. I love this cardstock because it’s neutral and perfect when you want to add “something” without creating a distraction on your card.

Enjoy the video!

    Fabulous card, it can work for a Graduation card maybe doing it with the school’s colors.
    I need to get me one of those “Pick Me Up” sticks, they seem to help a lot when gluing teeny, tiny stuff.
    Thank you for sharing, Darlene.

      Great idea for graduation Maria! Easily put Congratulations or Celebrate as die or leave as is!

    I LOVE that stacked “you,” Darlene!!! It just looks so cool as is. I think it was a good idea to leave off the red & orange. Great CAS design, too. I don’t have that particular die, but I’ll have to see if I have something else I could use. I even marked this card as a favorite before I read the post or watched the video–that’s how much I love it! 😺 ~ Andrea

    How fun! Great graduation card. I have the You die. And now, I have a great idea. Thank you!

    Has anyone else had any trouble getting your pick up stix to come out at the bottom? I’ve twisted it but it just won’t come out for use. I can get a little at a time, bit I’m doing something wrong or have a defective tool. Since this is my first one, I can’t compare it to another. Anyone else had this problem?

      I think they’re all like that Myra. I pulled mine apart a long time ago and just now I did it again. I had to use pliers to separate the “pusher” from the bottom piece and to do this I had to use a drop or two of baby oil. Once you pull it apart, then you can use a skewer to push the putty so a little more can come out. Hope this helps.

    I really like this card Darlene. You have given me two ideas for our Granddaughter’s Masters Graduation card and our Grandson’s 21st Birthday card. Thank you so much.

    I like this very distinctive card. I’m also so glad that the SSS YOU die was one of my recent purchases with my $25 voucher! It hasn’t arrived yet but I will be sure to use it as soon as does.
