Updating you on a long overdo project. If it wasn't one thing, it was another... And so it goes. Finally had time to put together pattern papers and make this set of cards for a co-worker. Based off a card I did a while back.
Papers are mainly from my simon says stamp card kits, but i also included papers from My Minds Eye that I have had for a while now.
For some of the pattern papers I couldnt bear to part with, i took a cue from an Amy R tip -- cut a panel out of the middle so that it leaves a border. Really helps with keeping the bulk down on the card.
Card bases are a mix of neenah solar white, recollections (michaels) and Simon Says Stamp.
Sentiment is from Hero Arts inked in Momento Tuxedo Black.
Adhesive was all tombow mono multi (liquid). I prefer my tape runner, but haven't picked up refills yet. I always have a couple extra on hand, but also keep liquid adhesive when I'm a bind.
Embellishment bows are twine/jute from my stash - all michaels.
Rectangle dies are Spellbinders Card Creater (probably my MOST used dies).
Tag dies are from Art C. Really great stamp and cut set. comes with 4 small sentiment stamps and three varied sized tag dies.
For the banner cuts I used my rectangle dies. I tried to match the rectangle to the paper width and the i rotated a corner of the die so that it would fit inbetween my corners with the L-corner of the die would creater the triangle banner cut. Had to do some manuvering on my big shot to fit it, but overall worked well enough. I'll do a separate post to show the tip.
I am still eyeing those banner dies by My Favorite Things. For smaller banner cuts i dont have too many issues cutting them out, but for larger widths I struggle with the symmetry. Anyone else feel the pain? #thestruggleisreal
I hope you enjoyed my card set!
Thanks for stamping by.
