I wanted to see if I could do it. I wasn't sure I would be able to go through with it. But I did it. Or maybe I should say I didn't do it *okie thinks for a minute and decides she has managed to confuse herself once again*. I DIDN'T INK! I DIDN'T DOODLE! After years of compulsive inking I managed to make a clean line card.
I got the layout idea from the gallery at Splitcoast Stampers. I needed to use the striped paper because it is another sheet from the stamp club challenge and I will have to take it with me on Thursday night when Linda, aka LGuild, and I go to stamp club.
I cut a piece of white cardstock at 4 x 5.25 inches and then slide the top part of the cardstock into the bottom part of the Season's Greetings A2 Cuttlebug folder. I left approximately a 2 inch gap and then slid the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder at the bottom piece of the cardstock and then ran it through the Cuttlebug.
I cut the striped paper at 2 x 4 inches and then placed it on the blank part of the white mat I had embossed. And then just lined up the half piece of shadow frame with the top of the striped paper and then pop dotted my matted wreath on top of that.
The circle that the wreath is on is from George and the curvy frame and shadow are from Straight From The Nest. I only cut two of the maroon and then cut in them in half. This saved paper and since I was only using half it just made more sense.
I used the Cuttlebug Wreath cut and emboss set. For the bow I just cut some pieces slightly larger than the bow and cut then embossed, this way I didn't waste my marvelous mica paper!
I didn't think I could do it, but I did it and ya know what...I REALLY LIKE IT! So what do ya'll think of my clean line card?
