TLC316 ~ Let's make a Trellis~ on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is to make a card featuring a homemade trellis. My trellis was made with my Cricut Expression and Sure Cuts A Lot software. It is a free svg file found here. I used SCAL to resize it to fit the card and then cut it out with my Cricut. Then I applied 3 layers of Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) this gave it a backyard trellis look I think...what do you think? Then I added the flowers a pretty ribbon, the tag and bow and voila! Hope you like it!
My second card was made for TLC317 ~ Newsworthy ~ (03/21/11) which challenged us to make a card featuring newspaper somewhere in the design. I chose to use it as my main focus along with Hero Arts Clings stamp; poppy background. I used the embossed resist technique and think it turned out rather nicely, don't you?
