Card Patterns Sketch #117

  • Digital image – May Brit – http://maybritshobbyblogg.blogspot.com/ colored with Copic markers
  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey – “Eva” collection
  • Die cut – Spellbinder Nestabilities “Mega Ovals”
  • Satin cord – Morex Corp.

I made this card using Sketch 117 at Card Patterns. This is the first time I’ve used a digital image from May Brit–this is a really pretty rose.

Wild Rose Birthday

  • Digital Image – Designed by Catherine Scanlon
  • Sentiment Stamp – Inkadinkado “Greetings/Salutations”
  • Patterned papers – Kaisercraft “Chanteuse Collection” and BoBunny “Passion Fruit Flourish”
  • Die cuts made with Spellbinder’s Netabilities: Standard Circles Large, Curved Rectangles, Labels Twenty, and Labels Seventeen
  • Button – Bazzill
  • Ribbon and twine

I made this card as one of my lessons in an online class by My Creative Classroom. One of the new techniques I learned for this was called Letterpress, which involved inking a Cuttlebug embossing folder with chalk ink, inserting a die cut still in the die under it and then running it through the machine. So it is both embossed and colored with a subtile layer of chalk ink. You need to do this correctly or you’ll cut your embossing folder. If you have a question about the “sandwich” you use in your die cut machine, please let me know.
