Hi all! I’m back with more from my CAS class. This lesson was about white space and I chose to create my cards based on the 2 from Maile. Here’s the first:
The image and sentiment (as well as the image from the next card) are from Cyber Cafe from Paper Smooches. I stamped the cup on patterned paper, cut it out and mounted it with foam boosters. The sentiment was stamped underneath and I machine sewed on a thin piece of matching paper to the bottom.
Here’s my second card:
I stamped the sentiment first and then stamped the beans around it with 2 different shades of brown ink. Finally I machine sewed on a hand cut strip of patterned paper to the side.
On a side note: I recently came across the blog of Marcy Penner and am completely in love with her style!! I can’t possibly even imitate her creativity, but I will be trying to find little bits and pieces of her style that I can replicate in my own works. I got the sewn-on strips above from her and love them! TFL!
