I shared a few weeks ago that I was a lucky girly, but as I keep saying, I haven't been getting much time to play at the mo. However on Monday, I thought I'd switch on my "Brother Scan n Cut" and make a card I needed.
Now, I've made this style of card before but I have to say, even though this was the first time I'd made one the "SnC" it took a fraction of the time that the hand cut versions have taken and gives a much cleaner result.
Saving the design to the memory it's going to be the quickest of makes next time I need a card for an 18 year old!
If you've seen the brilliant demos that Mel and John have done on C&C you'll know that it's easy to weld shapes together, I did this, flipped them and reversed them then welded them together again to create both the front and back of the card in one piece. I then just cut the numbers out individually from DP, inked the edges, and added inky stitching before overlapping them on the front of my cut blank. (Does that make any sense?) Even the bunting was also cut on the "SnC" from sized triangles. The stars and tag were die cuts though I could also have cut them on the machine.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CWD, Shaped card,
PPC168, Anything goes,
MIM182, Anything goes. (Sadly this is the last ever Make it Monday challenge :( )
Thanks for stopping by,
