I’ve been wondering where I’ve been for a while … certainly not card making … until yesterday afternoon, that is, when I had a few hours away from ‘life’ to sit and play. I made a few cards, this was the second (but I’m posting it first as I’m about to run out of time on one of the challenges) …
I’m taking the latest Online Card Class, Clean and Simple 3 (One Layer Cards). Well, when I say taking, what I really mean to say is I enrolled. So far I’ve managed to fit in viewing Day 1 videos (from last Monday) and Day 2’s extra inspiration … the theme was faux effects, with three different techniques showcased … this one is inset die cuts. I used the colours from Color Throwdown (Grey, Celery, Tangerine) and as I used a couple of my fabulous Winnie & Walter words, I’m linking up at their Join In To Win party.
I’m the proud owner of just two sets of dies … one of them is snowflakes, so not really perfect for spring (although I can feel those of you still in the midst of the white stuff shaking your heads at that) … the second is Clearly Besotted’s Geometric Style. So it was Hobson’s choice if I was going to try out this technique. I did a sketch of the layout and starting from the right, die cut each rectangle. The rectangles were coloured with Promarkers, overstamped with one of the companion stamps and fitted back into the spaces. There’s a piece of light card on the inside, well covered with adhesive, to keep them in place. We’re supposed to use an inset die cut word for the class, but as I don’t have one, I stamped/embossed the sentiment (having compensated by making a fairly complex pattern already!).
I’m off to get this linked before the door closes (in just minutes!). Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
