February CC: February Belle
o you recognize the papers and elements used in the card above? I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with making and using templates for card design, and decided to take my kit for January, “Sweet Pea” for a test drive. It printed beautifully, and the inner lining looks fantastic! (Second scripture on the inside – click “Cards by Carol” image above for more details) When printing inners for cards, use presentation quality typing paper with a slight sheen and a good weight for an outstanding result.
nce again, chasing the terminator to post February’s Color Challenge! I found this swatch very challenging, Kimmie, thank you very much. Can I send you my bill for replacement hair (clutching of locks) and cocktails (solace and comfort)??
These colours are really, really not my thing, but then that’s precisely why I take part in these challenges. Because they are, um, challenging. Outside of DCZ. (Designer Comfort Zone) After much pummeling (and clutching of locks – see above), I was eventually able to come up with something that uses these incongrous colours but is still “me”. Another cocktail, anyone?
And the results of a little card templating with this kit…
This is designed at 145x145mm to be printed on 148x148mm card blanks which are available here in Europe. Just under 6 inches square. The beauty of using digital supplies for cards like this is that you can resize them to perfectly fit your design/template. For instance, the paper with the three heart buttons (courtesy of Deb, the Scrappin Cop) is resized to position the buttons just where I wanted them. The top right cream paper is “inked” digitally using a cute, quick technique. Newbie Note can be arranged if you are interested 😉
