Today's class project is a buckle card. Well, I made one of these years ago, right? WRONG! I made one of these years ago. The one we made today is different. Wanna see? Lookie:
Julie showed it to us on the class video.)
Here is the unbuckled front:
Let's look at that front again:
Moving on, let's look at that side panel:
The handsome tape down the right edge is some Basic Grey paper ribbon tape I've had forever, and I've just used about 4" of it. (go me)
Now, let's talk about the innards:
I don't usually do the insides of my cards, but it was part of the lesson, so I did. We were just supposed to stamp on the inside, which I did, but I stamped it upside down!
GAH!I even practiced on my grid paper, and I still did it upside down on the card. But that's okay! It gave me the opportunity to stamp it again and employ one of the techniques we learned in the A Cut Above class -- to extend the length of a die.
The lesson here is LISTEN TO THE INSTRUCTOR! But I've gotta tell you, I really like this buckle card better than what I thought we were going to make. :)
In other news, I'm still wrestling with the Silhouette software, trying to bend it to my will. I'm losing. The Edit Points project has me all frustrated, but I shall persevere! I SHALL! *shakes fist*
Thanks for stopping by!
