It's 10:15pm. I'm supposed to be packing for a last minute road trip. The kids go back to school next week and Hubby and I are trying to make the best of their Summer Break and yet I can't resist the temptation of a last minute notecard.
"Use me....use me.....", my Cameo beckoned.
Urgh. I'll make something fast.
There are 50 sets in the LD Simple Shape Super Plus Bundle, and I just noticed Garden Fairies. The fairies are so pretty! I wanted to cut something small and I wasn't confident that they would work for what I had in mind so I picked a butterfly instead.
The card design took less than 5 minutes to put together:
- Import butterfly and reduce by 50%. Make an offset.
- Draw two rectangles, one at 4.25"x 11", and another at 3.75" x 5".
- Position everything where I want them to be.
The cutting and drawing took a little longer because I had to change the settings each time I replaced the blade with the pen. I also added a vellum layer to back the card front. Drawing the details on the backing vellum adds an interesting dimension to the whole card.
By the way, if you are new to my blog, please click here to see how I use my Cameo to draw.
Making the card took only a few minutes so I ended up making another with a flower image from the same Garden Fairies set. I'm putting these cards aside and leaving them sentiment-less. I like them blank like that but if I want to, I suppose I can stamp in a greeting later.
The Simple Shapes are only $49 for 3 more days and the bundle will go back to its $150 regular price after Aug 31. If you have not purchased your bundle, click HERE to get 'em.
