Today I have a card to share with you I made from designer papers from Sherri Baldy Besties. I sat and looked at this paper for a very long time before I finally got brave enough to cut it out. The paper is digital, so even if I did mes it up, I would always have more to work with for the second take. However, it was still so pretty, it made it hard to cut into it.
I have to say, the sit and wait, stare at the pretty paper worked well for me with this card, Though, I do not recommend it on a regular basis. LOL
This is the paper I received this month to work with for this card.
So here is the card I came up with this for my card.
I have started to use my Silhouette Cameo to help me create my cards and scrapbook pages. I did the same with this card. I love the fact that I can create a shape and add a pattern to it. In this case, I was able to size and choose just the right part of the paper for my card, then cut it to the perfect size. I am also able to pick a color from the image to use as my background mat. In the end, I have a perfectly match card, with perfect sizes for my front piece and my mats. I am also able to perfectly place my pieces on the mat to ensure I have the card I want.
I have to say, this is one of the fanciest card I have made. I really like it. It is amazing what well design paper and a good cutting machine can do for creating cards. Each layer is separate sheet of paper.
Have a closer look at some of the elements of the card.
