Die: Quilt Cuts 2 (WPlus9)
Other: glossy photo paper; snowflake punch
Just 'cos I haven't been postin', doesn't mean I haven't been lookin' (& investin'...). Yes I have taken a break from the tyranny of the paintbrush to use my lovely new dies that came in the post last week from WPlus9. They are fab; lovely geometric quilt cut designs, just right for an obsessive such as myself!
This card was inspired by the Runway Challenge this week, & also CAS(E) This Sketch:
I didn't have any red stripey paper, so I drew some lines in Silhouette Studio & printed them out on glossy photo paper. I also did the sentiment, using CAC Pinafore, Book Antiqua & Century Gothic fonts.
I placed the die on the paper to ensure that the stripes would run in the direction I wanted, then arranged them as shown on the kraft strip. The red & white bands are also on glossy paper.
The kraft was embossed using the scoreboard at 0.5 inch intervals.
Having put it all together, it looked a little bottom heavy (don't we all?), so I added the snowflakes to balance things out.
