PAPER-CUTS November 2012 Project Share

Oooooookaaaaay... as always, we'll be making a card (always handy to have a few card techniques up your sleeve, I think). Here it is:

I've used an embossing folder (a TRIPLE embossing folder no less - get me) to create those adorable hearts on stems along the bottom, and then it was simply a case of arranging those left over bits and pieces from the layouts into a pleasing design! And yes - those little embossed hearts at the bottom have been coloured in with a glittery red pen, but fear not - if you don't feel up to the challenge, well then that's what I'm here for; or of course, you could leave them plain!

And finally, talking of left over bits and pieces, check out our final project:

I know one certain lady who will be tickled pink that we're creating something in the dress form shape (;-D), and in this instance, it's a tag. Now... if you look closely, you'll see that I've machine stitched all of those strips of patterned paper onto the base card before die cutting the dress form shape. A classic case of lack of fore thought, as once the shape was cut and embellished, you'd hardly know those stitches were there, so rest assured we WON'T be getting the sewing machine out! If you like the look of the stitches however, there's always the option of doodling or stamping the stitch lines, I'll leave that up to you!

Anything you need to bring along for these projects? Some double sided tape would be useful and some strong glue to hold that cluster of embellishments onto the tag would be good. Other than that, it's all here at your disposal! Oh, and please remember, that if you're new, and you don't have a lot of kit yet, that's not a problem - everything you need is here to use until you get yourself up and running!

So, that's it then - I'm off to write up your instructions - not QUITE as much fun as creating the projects! Can you all keep your finger's crossed that my printer will play nicely this month...  see you all in a few days!  xxx
