For You

My local post office is getting really picky about "bulk" on the cards I send, so I'm finding more ways to send mostly flat cards that still have lots of interest.  Today's card fits the bill and works for the following challenges:

CASology: Pink
CAS on Sunday:Flowers
Addicted to CAS: Inlaid Dies


I used CTMH Artistry and Design Space Basics (free) to weld the flowers and rectangle together.  Here's the file if you have Cricut Design Space. I loved this so much, I cut four at once and have been playing with different ideas.

After cutting, I removed the entire image from my mat and poked out any hanging bits of paper. I then cut a square of CTMH Kaleidoscope paper into two triangles and glued them into the corners. Next, I peeled off the center of the cut out and glued it just where it overlapped with the Kaleidoscope paper. After stamping my sentiment (CTMH Happy to be Friends) in Gypsy ink and securing the ribbon with tape, I used lots...and I do mean LOTS...of foam tape. I got very close to the edges so the border and inlaid piece are secured together with the foam tape.  I forgot to take a picture, but I'm telling you, the back of that top panel is almost covered with foam tape.  There's a time to conserve and a time to got hog wild.  This is a hog wild kind of moment.

I don't know who this will go to or for what occasion which is why I used the generic sentiment.

Until next time,
Becca

  1. Using a lot of foam tape is expensive. Whenever I need to cover the entire back of the card front I use a piece of foam sheet and add adhesive to it. Great tip from Jennifer McGuire!

    Thanks so much for the inspiration and sharing the Design Space file.
