Day 185 – 365 Cards
We were asked to: “Create an unusual card shape”
So I made:
Totally impractical, this card measures 6 inches tall and two inches wide – don’t put it by an open window or it will tip over and spill soda all over your carpet!
I created a vector from a photo of the bottle, adjusted and sized it. I traced it in my Silhouette software and asked my machine to draw it using a pen. Then I used watercolour pencils to color, blending with a paper “stump” I embossed the cap in black.
You can’t really see it here but the liquid has glossy accents schmeared all over and its shiny. I cut the card base out of two slightly enlarged bottles which I mirrored and welded together. Really is a cute card! I will write “just POP-ing by to say hi!”
When I was making this card I was also cooking bacon. Multi-tasking is my middle name. My sister Nina was concerned I would get grease on my project but I assured her that I had a finger bowl of soapy water at hand, and that it was gentle on them too. Remember Marge in the old Palmolive ads? I am dating myself for sure. In case you never had the delight – here’s one of the commercials, so fun!
By the way – something FISHY is going on over at Nina’s blog…
