Hello there! Caroli here and today I’m again playing at the Locker Room and want to show you how to make a simple card in minutes using one of the gorgeous cutfiles from 17turtles, our sponsor this month.
When I saw the cut files Juliana Michaels spcially created for november kit I fell in love whith this gorgeous swirl grid, and i thought it would be a good idea to use it for making a card.
I wont lie, I’m not a card person, but I am working in order to improve that and challenged myself to make a simple card using the lovely cut file.
So, first I cut the swirl and placed over my card in order to calculate where to cut the grid.
Once I decided my work area I cut the swirl and placed some patternet paper behind it. I used the lovely papers from Lemon Owl included on my november kit.
Although it’s a simple card, I wanted to add some layers and so I did using the gold printed vellum from Studio Calico, also included in the kit. This is one of my fave items on the kit!
Once I adhered the vellum I also glued the decorated swirl over it.
Now it’s time to include a sentiment, and I used one of the banners included in the embellishments sets by Lemon Owl. Since I am using a lot of white and soft colors I though that black would be the perfect contrast.
Finally I added a wood bit from my stash and tha’ts all! My card is finished and ready to be sent to comeone I love 🙂
I hope you like this idea and give it a try! Remember we still have our November challenge up sponsored by 17turtles and you can win a US$25 gift certificate from their store! Have a nice weekend everybody!
