cut-ups

I have a shape for you today. These will make lovely little pieces for messages or sentiments and images.

I have been making this shape for years ever since I first bought CorelDraw! 5. That is a fun(!!!) program! And i would combine shapes to come up with other shapes and came up with quite a few.

 autumncard 

flower (nested_flower_3d_C00365_21585) and text frame (under cutting files in right hand column) were cut on the Silhouette Flower was colored with glimmer mists Tiger Lily and Old Lace. The center is gold mini-micro beads. I cut 6 petal-layers all at different sizes as follows: 1.55x1.77, 1.50x1.72, 1.22x1.39, 1.01x1.15, 0.98x1.13, 0.81x0.93. That’s so you can make sure the flower is the right size for the card. If you are cutting for something else you might want a larger size.

Leaves were stamped on water color paper and painted with water colors then cut out by hand.

Top layer of DP (Scrapper Dashery - IF, 12x12 from frantic stamper) is 3 3/4 x 4 1/2”

Mat layer (Basic Grey’s Kioshi – Plum Blossom, 12x12 from frantic stamper) is 4 1/4 x 5 1/4

Card Base (Bazzill Winter Collection) is cut 11 x 4 1/2 front is 5 1/2 x 4 1/2”

Sentiment is my own (feel free to use) and handwritten. Vintage Photo Distress ink was used with Tim Holtz’s applicator for the mellowing of paper.
