Ah, now I am only one card behind this week I believe. I hope to get the other done this evening if things are favourable for me.
Day 170 – Vintage Plus Blue
I had fun with this card. I added my own sentiment onto this elegant graphic I downloaded from Graphics Fairy. I cut it out using my Silhouette SD. I painted her skin, hair and hat using watercolour pencils. I added glitter to the pieces beside her waist.
I cut the swirl out using my SD – I purchased it today from the Silhouette Store – every week they have a “clearance” bin, so I took advantage. This machine really can cut out some very intricate stuff so nicely.
The finishing touches were some pretty white lace topped with a sheer blue ribbon, a tiny tatted ribbon, then embellished with charms, a flower and my own tatted flower.
Day 175 – Mixed Drinks
Well, I went with the Strawberry/Lemonade theme in my colors and this is how it worked out for me:
The yellow background designer paper is from Mind’s Eye – Quite Contrary, an umbrella theme on the side you can’t see – I think it was called umbrella something. The happy birthday stamp is from Studio G – Michaels!
I designed my own cutting template – very simple rounded edged size you can fit nicely on the front of a 4.5 by 5.5 portrait 1/4 fold card. I designed slots for you to run ribbon through, this ribbon is 3/4 inch wide. I will put the template for this in my cutting files tabs up top of my blog, both in png and .studio format so you can make your own!
I made these little flowers by layering – inked the edges. The flower shape is my own, I will offer it sometime in the future. I embellished with a small gold gem.
Off to make 176. Thanks for visiting. Don’t forget to scoop the templates for this card.
