I bought a new Design Card for my Slice the other day. International Travel. And now I'm obsessed with cutting camera shapes. The first thing I usually do with a new card is take some scrap paper and cut my favourite shapes in every available size. Often they turn out much bigger or smaller than I had expected and it's useful to mark a size on my samples and hold onto them for reference.
Once I'd done that, I made some cards. As simple as they come, just the die cuts and some little 4x4's. It was fun to play with scale, though, and see how I liked the bigger and smaller shapes. And keeping the front plain helps me think more about what i'm going to write inside.
You can see that I choose summery colours and added a bit of a golden haze to my photo - I'm pretending that the sun is shining here.
Using up some really old rubons, too: sharper looking than my stamping. Though I am looking out for a nice set of greetings stamps if anyone has any suggestions?
Many thanks to everyone who left a comment on Monday's post. It's especially grand to hear from a few new contributors! Seems like we all have as many ways of reading and enjoying blogs as we have of blogging ourselves. Long may it continue.
