Better late than never...

Last week's SCS Try a New Technique Challenge was to create a cut out card. The original challenge can be found here.

I started with a standard sized Groovy Guava CS base of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I cut my other layers as follows... Basic Gray 4" x 5", Soft Sky 3 3/4" x 4 3/4", Whisper White 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". Once I had all my layers cut out, I stamped my Elegant Insprations sentiment in Basic Gray on the Whisper White CS. I also stamped the flower image from Garden Silhouettes onto the Soft Sky layer, lightly traced a rectangle with my pencil, and used my precision tip scissors to cut out the portion of the stamped image inside the rectangle. Once that was done, I used my paper trimmer to cut out the remainder of the rectangle. I adhered all of my layers together, used my Signo White Gel Pen to give the flowers a little more detail, and attached the brads and Basic Gray Taffetta Ribbon.

Stamps - Garden Silhouettes, Elegant Inspirations
Ink - Basic Gray, Soft Sky
Paper - Groovy Guava, Basic Gray, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Miscellaneous - Basic Gray Taffetta Ribbon, Silver Brads
