I printed my images out on 100# Avon Brilliant white, which is a nice warm white. I kept it to original size as the ATC size image is perfect for this project! (Designs by Nicecrane)
here they are printed and cut, I edged the images with a dark brown marker
I dry embossed the image background papers and tried ecru and black inks on the raised surfaces. I went with the black.
Here my 160# pund Dane decided I was taking out for a walk, he got between me and the desk chair and planted himself! He won, we went and walked a couple miles.
I cut my card bases out 80# Strathmore Wedding White (another light ecru color). To make this an A6 size card - 4.75x6, you'll need to cute your cardstock into 8.5 x 6.
Score on the 4.25 line and again on the 61/3 line.
I did two sheets at a time
Next I pulled designer paper and cut it to fit. I quartered 12x12 sheets and the for each image cut one 6x6 piece into 6x 5.75, the I cut that peice -5 7.75 x4 that left me with strip the perfect size to fit on the out side of the card (2 x 5.75)
A background layer for the focal image
While working on these I kept the designer paper with the focal image and worked one card at a time.
Here you can see the designer papers glued in place along with my sentiment. One thing you have to remember when putting these things together, only glue the back left side of the focal image!!!
Here is the rest of the set!
There is the set!! I think it took me longer to post this than it did to make the set and walk the dog!!
I like this style of card it is a little less common and easy to whip up!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you made it through this long post!!!
