My second card this weekend didn't turn out quite how I imagined it, but I went with it anyway. The absolute best thing about this card is the Strawberry Slush layer for the Apothecary Accents diecut. I cut that layer using my Silhouette Cameo and was so excited when it worked! I don't like the wide layers on the nesting framelits and now I can cut layers as wide or as narrow as I like. I tell you, this machine is way cool!
(For anyone who is interested, I die cut the frame in Basic Black cardstock, then scanned it into my PC. Once I had it in the Silhouette software, I just used the trace and offset functions to make it the size I wanted before I cut it. This blog helped immensely with the process.)
The inspiration for this card came from the sketch at CAS(e) This Sketch and the inspiration challenge at Just Add Ink, which is the cover of the new SU Annual Catalogue. I chose the glimmer paper circle banner and the dress color as my inspiration for this card.
I punched a whole lot of gold and silver glimmer paper circles using the 1/2" circle punch and the Itty Bitty circle punch. I then laid some cotton on the card base and stuck the circles randomly onto the cotton. A thin sliver of Strawberry Slush and the Apothecary Accents sentiment finish off this CAS card.
