After lunch and a bit of football I was back at my crafty desk. This time I am playing along with Muse. Laurel Beard was our muse this week. Her card is pictured below.
I was inspired by:
Panel on top of a card base
I used Wplus9's Festive Greetings (cause I gotta have the lights!) and Altenew's in line Alphas.
First I stamped and colored a bunch of light strings. I tried to keep the colors in order but it didn't happen. Next I laid out my dies, measured made sure they were straight and ploped them down on my cutting mat and sent them through. Since there are 2 r's I had to leave space to cut the second one on the next pass through.
Somehow during my placing the dies on the cutting plate the first r went wonky. Fortunately with a word like merry it can be off kilter, and I think it adds to the festivity of the card. So I purposely cut the second r off kilter as well.
I mounted the die cut letters onto black fun foam and replaced them into the panel once it had been adhered to the card base. Lastly a bit of shimmer for all those bulbs courtesy of a Spectrum Noir shimmer brush pen.
Thanks much for coming by!
