Remember cassettes? You might, if you’re as old as I am. When I played around with a texture medium I had lying around, I found I could make strips that look like the tape inside a cassette. I found the perfect stencil to make the card I wanted and got to work.
First, I stenciled the cassette on white cardstock with neon inks, then cut it out.
For the layering pieces, I cut a rectangle from blue cardstock, then sprayed it with some sparkly colored sprays. For the second layering piece, I cut a piece of patterned paper.
For the background piece, I cut “You rock!” from teal cardstock using a Silhouette machine, then I cut the cardstock to the size of my card base (A4). I coated a piece of white cardstock with purple texture spray, let it dry, then adhered it to the underside of the teal stock. Then I flicked more purple texture spray onto the piece. I also cut the music notes with a Silhouette from black cardstock, then covered it with purple iridescent texture paste.
For the “tape,” I applied some texture medium to a craft mat in the width and length I wanted the piece to be, then let it dry. Once dry, I could mold the tape to make waves, like real tape does if you pull it out of a cassette. If you’re too young to remember, you’ll just have to trust me.
Finally, I adhered all the pieces together.
Thanks for looking!
