Happy Saturday and welcome to my blog! If you came here from Nicole’s blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.
Today the Design Team is sharing some wonderful made with love projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. I love that Lisa has so many punny designs in the store – it fits right into my idea of fun!
Here’s the card I decided to make for my hubby for Valentine’s Day (he doesn’t usually visit my blog, that I know of, so hopefully I’m not ruining the surprise) I used the Safari Love Cutting Files (which has all kinds of cute wild animals and the wonderful sentiment) along with the A2 Card Bases 1 Cutting Files which I think is an elegant design for a Valentine’s card.
What a cutie pie, huh? I love the little lion and the sentiment is perfect for me! I love all the layers that Lisa incorporates into her designs. It makes it so easy to create dimension and it’s also so easy to assemble – all the layers just go one on top of the other!
Here you can see where I chose to add dimensional adhesive. I also folded the edges of the mane up to add some texture. The lion’s body was done with print and cut for the yellow parts and just cut for the black and brown parts. I also used my new Wink of Stella black glitter marker on the lion’s eyes and the Wink of Stella clear brush marker on the heart in the sentiment – I need some practice with that because it really came out thick and had to be dabbed off a bit.
On the inside I created my sentiment by layering the two bottom layers of the lion image with my sentiment, ungrouping and editing the sentiment to be as wide as possible and then used the Divide command on the modify menu in Silhouette Studio. After I divided I had to delete the lines that were outside of the letters, change the fill colors and then do print and cut with cut settings set to cut edge. I like how it turned out and the pun makes me smile (hopefully, my hubby doesn’t groan;-)
I hope you’ve enjoyed my project! There’s lots more goodness to come!
