Well, yesterday was World Cardmaking Day, and I challenged myself to produce 80 cards.....well I met my goal and I've been asked to give some instructions on how I created my cards.
The first one I'm showcasing is the Cardinal card.
I used 2 cartridges to create this card, the NEW Artfully Sent and Art Philosophy.
I used the cut found on page 27 on the sleeve key. It is set as a 7" cut, however with the Explore machine I am able to manipulate the size of the card, and made this a standard A2 size (4.25 x 5.5).
The card base is cut in New England Ivy Cardstock, and then backed with White Daisy.
The pennant is cut twice, once in Ruby (3.25 x 2.25) and then in White Daisy (3 x 2). I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Christmas stamp set (B1468) in Ruby Ink. The Cardinal is colored using ShinHan Alcohol Markers in Sap Green, Leaf Green, Marigold, Carmine and Bronze . I then fussy cut it out and popped it using 3D foam tape.
I hope you liked my card, and if you would like to purchase any of the supplies used to create this card you can purchase them here or you can contact me.
