Wow, I'm busy now. I just took on a month with 4 Crafty Chicks. And indeed it's a CRAFTY place! Please play and visit. Our challenge this week is highlighting the use of our die cuts. The DT examples are gorgeous! Check them out here.
My card is layered like a wedding cake. It must be an inch thick! I dug out discontinued embossed floral papers. (Been sitting on them for years) Die cuts used were Spellbinders, Labels 18, Labels 4, and Fancy Tags. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the doily layer. Rough, true... have you tried it yet? Cut lots of squares 7", 6.5", 6" etc, for practice with your border punches. Lots of messed up squares when you start out, but keep it up, you'll find the right size and border for doily making. The die cuts layer up beautifully! Yes, I've used lots of pop tape. I remembered a lovely phrase that I printed out before die cutting. Every thing I computer design as a stamp or sentiment I save, and call it a "Vicki Stamp". My personal digital stamp collection is getting huge! Oh goodness I can't forget the cute little butterfly! It's a left over too. She is cut out from scrap paper and covered/heated with UTEE. So she's all shiny and her wings are frozen in a 3-D pose. Too cute. I have a UTEE projects here & here from an earlier post.
I had a ball creating this card! It came together so nicely. Please visit my other creations if you like my style. Always looking for a few more followers. I hope you are going to play at 4 Crafty Chicks this week too!
Thanks again for visiting, Happy Holidays!
