And here is my inspiration for the sketch, and yes, I went from round to oval, but I think that's what you call 'creative license' or 'artists interpretation'! :o)
And here is my take on the sketch . . .
And of course, here are all the details . . .
- Patterned paper is from Prima Marketing, Shabby Chic Collection "Sweets"
- Card stock is from Die Cuts With a View
- Stickles 'Crystal'
- Prima eLine pearls
Tips, Tools and Techniques:
- Cut patterned paper to size and adhered it to a ready-made blank card using Glue Glider Pro and PermaTac adhesive
- For oval I used my Cricut Expression and A Childs Year cartridge The darker pink scalloped oval is
using Monogram feature, cut at 4 1/2 inches, and the pink oval with 'LOVE' cut out is using Monogram feature, also cut at 4 1/2 inches. Once the two pieces were glued together, I added the stickles inside the letters.
- For hearts, I also used my Cricut Expression and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge,
set at 1 1/4" for the two smaller, and 1 3/4" for the larger. I then scored the hearts down the center, added stickles to the outer edges and a pearl to each.
- Brown ink was lightly applied to the outer edges of the card for a little finish to the edges.
Once again, I have to say that I didn't think I would ever use the A Child's Year cartridge, but I keep coming back to it time and again! There are so many things you can do with the different features available on it! To learn more about choosing your cartridges, read Number Four on my post HERE.
Thanks for stopping by, and come back next week to see another project made from one of my sketches!
Be Joyful Always! Becky
