Here is the card that I made to take to convention. Ã‚Â I am thrilled that I was able to make 72 cards! Ã‚Â I will post some of my favorites! Ã‚Â So something kind of funny….I had this post all ready to go except for the picture. Ã‚Â Now I sit down to finish up and I have everything packed, including all these cards…deep in the back of the van…in a box…in the bottom of the cooler… Ã‚Â So… I happened to keep this one. Ã‚Â The cards for convention are the same with the exception of the embellishments. Ã‚Â I used the Black/Grey sparkles instead of the bubbles that you see here.
Supplies used: Pirouette stamp set, Hello Blooms stamp set, Slate Ink, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection,Ã‚Â Whisper Cardstock,Ã‚Â Black & Grey Assortment Sparkles,Ã‚Â and Slate Satin Polka-Dot Ribbon.
For some of the cards I used up the rest of my Grey Flannel Cardstock. Ã‚Â It is a similar light grey to the new Whisper.
I didn’t realize until half way through that I could have saved some paper with this project. Ã‚Â I cut the 12×12 sheets of grey to use as card bases. Ã‚Â What I later discovered is that even though the Pirouette shape didn’t quite fit on the scrap I had leftover, it was enough since I was cutting part of it off the edge of the card anyway. Ã‚Â I finished the rest of the cards this way and was able to make a few more than I would have otherwise. Ã‚Â When I attached the stamped Pirouette image, I let it fall off the edge of the card, then I used my Cutterpede trimmer to cut off the excess. Ã‚Â This worked perfectly because I could butt the edge of the card right up to the blade and cut it straight, much faster than trimming with scissors.
