Happy Friday! Here’s one of the cards from last month’s Fun & Fab 4th Friday card workshop.
I used the same stamp and card layout as I did a year ago with this card.
Wanting a little different background, I grabbed my Artbooking handbook looked for an elegant overlay. I found this damask one.
I sized it in Cricut Craft Room, but it wasn’t really going to fit on an A2 card perfectly. And then I noticed I was almost out of Smokey Plum cardstock. To stretch my paper stash for 12+ of these cards I squashed the design so it was only 3” wide while keeping the height at 5.25 inches tall. This allowed me to save a bit of paper and get the Smokey Plum label shape to fit on the same 12x12 piece of cardstock. This is how it looks in CCR.
I was able to fit 6 overlays and 5 label shapes on one sheet of paper! The 6th label fit nicely on a scrap. No worries there!
After cutting the overlays on my Cricut, I cut them roughly in half with my scissors. (Don’t use a paper trimmer! It could tear the overlay and perfection isn’t needed.) I lined up each half to the edge of the card and covered the gap with the For Always B&T paper. Once it’s all adhered together really well, nobody will know that this is what it looks like on the inside!
I embellished the Seam Binding Ribbon bow with a new embellishment from the Mini-Medley Accents from the Rosewood Collection. I love this collection and it has just a touch of pink that compliments the Smokey Plum so nicely!
Love this card? Here’s the Cricut Craft Room & Gypsy files for you! Please show some blog love by leaving a comment before downloading this file.
I exported the Gypsy file from Cricut Craft Room. I did not proof it on my Gypsy. It should work but I’ve heard that they don’t always convert correctly.
Hope you have a crafty weekend!
