Here are the products featured in my two cards today:
First up is a birthday card for my Mom, who loves blended red and yellow tulips. I knew I wanted to make a '29 again' card since it wouldn't be polite to advertise the real number! :) The numbers from the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies were cut from white and stenciled with yellow to match the background panel which was cut with the ODBD Custom Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. The image from 'Tulips' was stamped in black, cut out with the ODBD Custom Tulip Die, colored with markers, then popped up with foam tape. The sentiment panel was cut with the smallest die from the ODBD Custom Circle Scalloped Rectangles, but was 're-sized' to make it shorter so that the 'again' sentiment from 'Celebration' would fit perfectly. (To resize this die, it was only cut half way the first round, then flipped around and re-positioned so that the scalloped matched, then cut half way on the other end.)
My next card was created for my hubby for our 25th anniversary coming up (good thing he doesn't read my blog!!) I chose the new Artistic Outpost Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection for both the background and for the numbers, since it was "manly"! The numbers were cut out of the designer paper with the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies, then matted with kraft cardstock. To create the perfect mats for the numbers, I traced the outlines of the dies onto the cardstock and cut out with scissors. Since there are no dramatic curves, this was very simple to do. The sentiments from 'Celebration' were stamped onto panels cut from the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies. The gears were cut out of rust and kraft with the ODBD Custom Steampunk Gears Dies for embellishments and both rectangle panels were cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. I love how all of the piercing coordinates!
Thank you for helping us to celebrate!!!!
