It's a Friday and I have the weekend off! Trying to tie up some necessary errands today so I can fully enjoy Saturday and Sunday. Summer is winding down and I find myself looking forward to those delightfully crisp autumn days.
I made this card a few days ago using two designs from Silhouette. I like to make birthday cards to have on hand....so you think I would be better about getting them in the mail. I have been terrible this year about getting cards out. I did post one card on facebook and said it was for all my facebook friends who had birthdays in August. Isn't that the laziest thing you ever heard? I am going to do better next year!
Am I the only one who has this issue? Will anyone else confess to something similar?
Back to the card. Here are the designs I used to make the card:
I printed the card in white.
On the Silhouette, I cut the teardrop edge away from the rest of the card and copied it 4 times and filled it with the different colors. Cut those out and layered them in a staggered fashion to the bottom of the card.
I changed the colors on the birthday banner, printed them and cut them out on the Silhouette.
They were adhered to the card using foam tape.
The next project I have to share is not a completed card. I was given a card with a beautiful quilt pattern on the front and I wanted to try and create that look on the Silhouette. I wasn't able to find the pattern I wanted in the online store but I did find this design:
And here is what I created by duplicating the design
I made the background by offsetting the quilt pattern and only cutting out the border. I cut that out in white and cut the design out in pp. Then ran it through my cuttlebug using an impression plate.
That is as far as I have gotten. Not sure exactly how I will use it. Have any ideas for me?
Did a little shopping today at "I Love Mementos". Have you seen the new LaBlanche stamps they are carrying? They are fantastic, can't wait for them to get here.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for visiting!!
