Every once in a while I like to do something different. I've made cards like these before, but this time it was a break from my standard A2 card size. I was kinda on a roll this weekend with challenges, and I needed a little something to mix it up.
Here are the cards, then I'll explain:
DTGD challenge to make a skinny card. Then after I made these, I realized that was a sketch challenge, so these were a bonus. :)
It all started with a piece of KaiserCraft paper from my "why haven't I put these away yet" pile. I figured out (quite by accident) I could get two layers for each of the four cards out of one piece of 12x12 paper with very little left over. I was pumped!
The bases are made from one piece of 12x12 Whisper White, cut into 6x6 squares, scored down the middle, giving four 3x6 cards. The pieces of pretty paper are 1/4" narrower than that, then 1/4" narrower than that. Can you tell my brain is tired?
While assembling the cards, I couldn't decide which pairing I liked best, so as is my nature, I chose not to decide and made two of each. I solved the problem of stamping onto the black paper by using a strip of the remaining piece as banners. I love how these turned out.
Since I failed to read the directions for the DTGD challenge, I'm entering these in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
