Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!
Today I am sharing my second card for my guest designer spot at Tuesday Throwdown!!! This weeks challenge number 93 is to use stick pins on your project!
The lacy edged panels I cut using my Cricut Holiday Cakes cartridge. I ran the orange pattern paper through my cuttlebug, embossing it with the D'vine Swirls folder, then dabbed a little orange ink around the edges and on top (mostly to help cover the white that broke through :) ).
The center label is cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge and then embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. I printed off the heart frame that was provided by this weeks sponsor-MyGrafico for the design team at Tuesday Throwdown. It's printed on glossy photo paper...I'm trying different papers for my stamps and digital papers to see if they will provide better quality printouts than just regular card stock. While the image printed great, I'm not sure I like the shine that glossy photo paper makes...
The sentiment is a cut file I created and then cut with my cricut, shadowing it with a white outline. I then ran over the edges of the blue letters with a blue colored pencil to help outline it and give it an edge against the white...without that outline, it just looked blah...it took me awhile to figure out what the problem was. I kept looking at the sentiment, knowing something was wrong but couldn't put my finger on it right away :)
For the final touch, I added some small orange dots to the corners of the blue paper and sprinkled them with tiny beads as well.
I hope you will join us this week at Tuesday Throwdown!
