I wanted to make a 'leaving card' so chose this Precious Moments image which seemed 'just right' & paper-pieced the jacket with matching papers (Nitwits) & coloured the rest of it using Promarkers. For the image's base mats I created a special 'named' cut-file, cutting it twice & off-setting one of those layers when layering up to give a 'shadowed' effect. I actually used cut-files for most of my layers using the print & cut feature - going with a combination of both rectangular & faintly rounded-rectangles and created my circular sentiment also using the Silhouette Cameo software.
|..& on the inside.|
The Cameo also cut my card-base in yet another file I had created myself, (well, that is the fun of the Cameo is it not? LOL), including the back of my card of course & I was very good & 'controlled' & managed to keep the insides nice & flat & without too many layers. I also added a sentiment - leaving room to add a hand-written signature later. I have also made a 'Leaving' box for this particular card which coordinates rather than matches the card (& have added the link to it if you happen to be interested).
Thanks for taking the time & visiting my blog today.
