I have an order for some Thank You cards from a dear friend so I decided to marry it up with a challenge, a new one, just coz. Coz its Monday and one does not want to do the usual Monday stuff.
The rule is - a shaped card, anything but square. There’s some funky digital stamps to be won by KennyK’s so you might want to join in! And Scrappers Delight is also providing a prize to a lucky winner for a $5 coupon to spend in their web store.
Here’s my take on a shaped card:
I used my MASON CUT which is a freebie here on my blog from a ways back - but instead of CUTTING it, I drew it with my Silhouette Sketch Pens. Granted I did have to modify a few bits to get a cut around afterwards and then I married two two “jars” together to make the card base.
The original post for the Mason jar is HERE if you’d like to revisit it and download via the link. Not ALL the files you see here today are in it but the basics are.
The glitter is from some stick and peel glitter sheets my friend Mel O gave me - I had no idea they were sticky so I was hugely tickled when I found this out, it saved me tons of work. I cut the lid shape with the sparkly and the lettering and set the lettering inside the SWEET which was already drawn in using the sketch pens.
I always default to my dear old manual typewriter for sentiments in a pinch and this time I typed out the “you’re so…” onto some parchment because I wanted the “jam” to show through a bit. I typed onto the parchment, then I turned the paper over and because the paper is semi transparent I was able to see where it was and place the tape on it. Then I trimmed it and pasted it onto the front. I’ll definitely use this tip time and time again.
Ah well, if one is going to invest a bunch of time into designing a card then one should make a half dozen batch, right?
Thanks for taking the time to visit me today. Stay tuned for some cool DIY posts coming up - I’m on a roll!Blogger Labels: Card,Challenge,Thank,friend,Cards,KennyK,Scrappers,winner,coupon,Here,MASON,freebie,Silhouette,Sketch,tons,SWEET,paper,batch,Thanks,Stay,sheets,sentiments
