Hi Yall' I hope you are hanging in there with me as I get back in the groove, reacquaint myself with my craft room, and dodge a few boulders this week! I know not all of you have a Cricut Imagine, but if you do here is a card showing several ways to customize your cuts....if you don't maybe these ideas will come in handy when working with tags, and printed papers...so don't leave just yet...stick around and take a look! :)
Stitching a printed layer adds texture, and visual interest, plus takes away the "carbon copy" feel of printed images. Adding elements such as this fringie-ish trim, and quilled flower add luxury to the project. A chain, and foam tape to pop the bird cage away from the bird give the image a more "realistic" spin. Stamped, printed, die cut, it doesn't matter...if you add embellishments to them they become your personal artwork, and not just another cookie cutter image.
Check out the metal effect I achieved by inking the cage in a metallic ink and embossing powder! I know its another one of my "more is more" cards, but when you are having fun, more IS more!!!
Don't jump ship on me just yet my friends, I promise I will be back to a regular schedule after Labor day....in fact lets do this right! I will be announcing a holiday giveaway on Friday AM !!!
