Todays Cards

This card was done using this weeks Splitcoast technique email idea for making shadow box cards. this should take you to the tutorial page here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/news/comments.php?id=554_0_1_0_C The gist of it is to score each side of the cardstock at 1 inch and 1/2 inch from each edge on both pieces (with both pieces being the same size) I'm thinking i will try this again. hopefully soon and make the bottom piece one inch wider then the top piece and score it three times so that some of the back wraps around the front. (this would be cool if you used like a double sided heavy printed paper for this I'm thinking) there is some printed paper from Rubber Soul on the inside under the giga scalloped punchie, I used the green part that was cut out of the front "window" for the mat on this. There are 1/16 holes punched in the scallops. This Card Won Project of the Day at Creative Express! The Cake and candles stamps are from Stampin'Up and the Happy Birthday is from MySentimentsExactly. the sentiment is stamped on a small scalloped punchie from Family treasures. The Paper flower on the punchie is from Impress. The scalloped ribbon on the edges is from Hero arts and has 1/16 holes punched where the white spots would have been. This card is only 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches when flat. This card is also A-2 in size and has a couple of new Amuse Art stamps on it. the ribbons are wrapped around the brown card stock then the scalloped punchies are up on pop dots. I colored the birds with markers then added white gel pen dots for the eyes.
