I got an email from a reader who was wondering if I was selling the Split Initials. I hadn't really thought about it since I figured buying and shipping frames would be a little outrageous. She said she can take care of the frame end and just wanted the letters. After emailing back and forth it was agreed that it would be easier for me to have the letters ready to just mount in the frame. This way if there were any errors I could easily fix them and she didn't have to worry about transfer tape and messing up any of the pieces, as anyone who has worked with vinyl it is easy to mess up a little every now and then. Now all she will have to do is pop them in just like they were a picture!
I am using some clear acetate to put the vinyl on so a nice background can be added. I am also wondering how it would look with the couple's picture as the background, with the picture opaque and in black and white.
So far the only background paper I have done is the silver, she liked it in the one I had on my blog earlier this week. I think the possibilities would only be limited by your paper supply.
Now just to find some acetate sheets for a reasonable price and I might be ready to put these suckers up for sale as well!
I think it's a great idea. Love these and it would be pretty as a cardstock cut for an anniversary card, too.ReplyDelete
I did one with the Regal font, but I think I like this font better. Would you share the name?ReplyDelete
These are wonderful.ReplyDelete
You just amaze me Okie!!!! If I could harness just a smidge of your creativity and talent I'd be a lucky girl.ReplyDelete
Remember when we went to Norman and I took a trunk full of office supplies to see if anyone would want them? There were two boxes full of acetate sheets and neither of us could think of anything we'd ever use them for! LOL! Another reason to never, ever throw anything away!ReplyDelete
You can send me an "L" one, I see you have it already made :) How much $?ReplyDelete
I LOVE theseReplyDelete
Glad "someone" over on MTC forum was able to help you out! These look really nice and I like your idea of putting them on acetate sheets. I'm with Linda, never ever throw anything away! MeFlickReplyDelete
I am so loving these split initials ... the letter style and the ornate scrolly/vine/floral work around them is incredibly beautiful!ReplyDelete
Nice Initial projects. I have done one similar for a wedding gift and they turn out nice. go over to Bug Junkie - - I recently brought 12x12 acetate from her. She calls it 'better than arcylic'. i just made a project with it this weekend - it is a bit thinner than arcylic from cricut carts and cuts well with a new blade in my cutter.ReplyDelete
Here is her post
Love this design idea, perfect for gifts!! I personally want to gift myself an 'R', so I hope you begin with Z and work backwards on the alphabet. I'm curious what price you decide on - please be sure to let us know!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Have you tried Oriental Trading for the acetate sheets?ReplyDelete
So very pretty!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Bug Junkie sells BTA, "BETTER THAN ACRYLIC". It is a fabulous product. Clear and pliable. Would be perfect for mailing in a tube. Check it out.ReplyDelete
You can just send the "L" one to me Shirley!! lol These came out great and I'm glad that you were told an easier way to do them.ReplyDelete
