I experimented a little with the Sweet Silhouettes Dies recently. Don't you just love that tree! The card I have today is a little out of my box. You'll have to tell me what you think about it. I am not an orange person, but something does draw me to this card.
Besides the tree, my card features the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. I used it for the whole card. Let's see how it was made.
The card base is Terracotta Tile cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. I added a layer of the Woven Threads paper in the Terracotta Tile. This paper adds just a hint of texture to the card. I cut this layer 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 to cover almost the entire front of the card.
The tree was cut from the Peacock patterned paper from Woven Threads. I added it to also cover much of the front. For this I used my Silicone Craft Sheet, a small glob of Multipurpose Glue, and a sponge. Try to hold the tree in one place so you don't get glue on the front.
Using the Layering Squares, I made a frame for the lower left of the card using yet another pattern from Woven Threads. This is glued directly to the card front.
Now stamp the saying from Woven Heirlooms in Pretty Peacock on the Sahara Sand paper from Woven Threads. Cut the saying apart and glue down the center of the card.
Finish up with a bow of Linen Thread added with a glue dot.
I will say that this is a close up card. It just doesn't show as well from a distance if that makes sense. The words would show up better on Whisper White, but that wasn't the look I wanted.
Here's the inside of the card. Now, I love this! I should probably make it the outside! I might work on some version of that. The Sahara Sand paper is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Add parts of the tree cut from the Peacock paper. These are still all from Woven Threads. The saying is part of Woven Heirlooms. Hint: To get the tree coming from the right side of the paper, turn the paper over and then cut.
I would really be interested in what you think of this card. Be gentle.
