Wednesday is card sketch day on Splitcoaststampers. I am enamored by the one posted today.
The only way I could think to reproduce this was to trace the sections and cut them out individually. A little time consuming, bordering on frustrating to get all the curves right so they fit together.
I developed a short cut eliminating half the curved cuts.
Piece 1 is curved and will lay on top of piece 2 that has no curved cuts and can be a rectangle only. The curve of piece 3 will lay on top of piece 2, and the curve of piece 4 will lay on top of piece 3.
This is the first card I did with my individually cut pieces – 5 cut curves. I cut only 3 pieces of paper and pasted them to the cream card, on which I had heat embossed the image. The sentiment was also heat embossed, cut out, edges inked with Green Olive from Fun Stampers Journey and popped up with Journey foam squares.
The stamp set is from Fun Stampers Journey found here by Kristy. They are a really cool new stamp and die company, worth checking out.
I am looking forward to making more cards from this sketch!
