On different note--my friend Jill came over last weekend and we did get to craft some cuteness. We started a card set with the Country Life cartridge, and I finally had a chance to finish the cards up today.
|Standard A2 sized cards.|
|I cut the countryside at 3 3/4", so it would fill in the card front|
and give room to stamp my sentiment. I centered the sun and
then I just trimmed the excess off with my paper trimmer.
|I added some stitching and creamy brown Chalk ink to the edges|
for a little depth. I popped up all of the animals with pop dots.
|These little lambs with their black faces are so cute! Now the|
handbook does have a cut layer for the face, but honestly the faces
didn't cut very well at this size, and they looked cuter left black.
|I went back and added the horse's eyes with my black Micron pen. I|
used the Swiss Dots embossing folder with my Cuttlebug for a
little texture on the sun.
