Hi everyone! I am so excited to share my exciting news...........
I made the Top 20 in Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2014 card contest!
I'm so excited for this journey again! You need to check out all of the talent in this years group! Amazing!
You can see the Paper Crafts post HERE! You can vote using the link on my side bar!!!
This contest works just like American Idol and we rely on votes to make it to the next round. Today starts Round 2. The theme for Round 2 is all about DIECUTS.
You can check out all the details on the Contest page HERE.
I've used "diecuts" for the focal point, as a frame, and for the sentiment. This card has LOTS of dimension that was hard to capture with these photos.
I diecut two Stitched Mats: Rectangles: one in vellum and one in clear cardstock. After diecutting all my Stitched Butterflies in various patterns from my FAVORITE 6x6 paper pad this spring, I arranged and adhered them to the vellum. Adhering some Sparkling Clear sequins to the centers of the butterflies, I let the glue dry on that panel. With this same stitched rectangle and one size smaller, I diecut a "frame" and backed it with that clear cardstock rectangle panel. Once the glue was dry, I layered my "frame" over the top of the vellum butterfly panel. This whole panel was then added with foam adhesive over a silver foil mat. I was going for a shadowbox idea by using the clear cardstock.
For even more dimension, my sentiment was diecut 5 times with white cardstock and once with silver foil. After glueing all the diecuts together, the silver foiled sentiment was adhered slightly to the right on my frame.
And there's my version of using DIECUTS! I hope I've shared enough to sway your vote!
