It feels like FOREVER since I posted something fun and creative! Summer is flying by! Well I have been working on this card for a couple of days. It's so cool! It's called a Cascading card and you can find the instructions here (try it-it's not as hard as it looks!). Mynnette does an awesome job of showing you the steps.
I am entering this card into Mynnette's Technique Tuesday: Cascading Card and Simon Says Stamp and Show: Anything Goes-No Rules! Woo Hoo! No Rules just right! ;)
So here's my card. Scroll on down, and I'll show you some highlights.
I bought Tim Holtz's gear die last week and couldn't wait to use it. This was the perfect card for it! I haven't made a cascading card before. As a matter of fact of was thinking that maybe I should add a little diversity to my card making and then there is the challenge of making a different shaped card. It was meant to be! I also used Tim Holtz's tissue tape (I LOVE it!) and one of his metal sayings. I used Distress Stain on the lace to change up the color and used various Distress Ink to make the front more interesting.
Here's a closeup of the front.
Here's is an aerial view. :) It shows the different levels of gears. This card was a lot of fun to make. Thank you so much for stopping by! Until next time my friends...I have to get in gear! (I know I know) ;)
