Hello from the sunny PNW where we are longing for rain! This is Christine from iamcocoasmom.blogspot.com with my latest post for Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady.
of my favorite 'freeby' sites is Bird's Cards. She designs amazing
cards, freely shares her files and responds with variations on her
designs at the request of her followers. Crafters are the nicest
I have been waiting for a chance to cut this file for a "Special Day"
bendy card. Unlike the more elaborate three piece bendy cards
available from the Sil store, this card is just one piece with a single
top layer. I needed to resize the card after uploading it to DS so that
it would cut on a 12 inch mat. I made the card 11.1 inches wide and
then ungrouped. After selecting the card, I attached the score lines
and changed the color of the top sentiment layer. Easy peasy! I chose
to use the Graphic 45 By the Sea stack and it cut beautifully.
Lovely, but it's not exactly 'special' enough for my sister's birthday
card. I wanted to add more dimension and so cut a strip of coordinating
paper 5 3/4 by 1 inch and scored one end at 1/2 an inch and the other
at 1/2 an inch and at 1 inch. I attached it inside the bendy front:
and after fussy cutting some of my favorite images from the stack, I collaged them to the inside of the card and to the strip.
better! I kinda like this shadow box effect. I tied the card with a
twine bow and a compass charm from Tim Holtz and called it done.
forget to pop over to Bird's Cards. You'll love her inspirational
designs. Thanks for visiting with me today and thank you Sheila for
the opportunity to share. : ) Christine
