Just a quick simple card for today.
I started out with this Hello Adventure die cut file from the Silhouette Design Store.
I welded it to a circle, with an offset circle set to a dashed line to create a stitched effect. I then created a rectangle with an internal offset, also with a dashed line. You can download the cut file for the card front below, but it won’t include the ‘Hello Adventure’ element since it’s not mine to distribute.
I cut out two of the card fronts with the Silhouette Portrait using white card stock, using the second one just as a mask to ink up the card. This wasn’t entirely necessary since the rest of the inked card stock is hidden behind the front panel but I prefer this way so that I don’t waste time inking up something that isn’t going to show.
I used my mini ink blending tool and three shades of Tim Holtz Distress: Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Mowed Lawn. I did end up blending quite a bit of Mowed Lawn over the Cracked Pistachio because I wasn’t thrilled with how it looked.
All that was left was a matter of assembling the card, gluing it all down using my Tombow Stamp Runner. I cut out a 5.5 x 8.5 card base out of kraft card stock, perforating it with the Silhouette Portrait to create my score line.
