I needed 2 anniversary cards in a hurry, and these are what I came up with. I also used them for a challenge, so I completed 2 tasks at once.
I used Sharon Mobley’s File Fancy Mats 2, RM00148 and Fancy Borders 2, RM00145. This is for a challenge on the VDBC Forum, to use either a digital or hand stamped image and color it by hand. I colored my stamp using the Gamsol and Colored Pencil technique. After coloring my stamp I applied some Stickles to the image, I also hand cut the image and applied Scotch Mounting Tape. Attached the ribbons to my cards using Fiskars Glue Dots. The stamp is a Hero Arts Stamp – Hydrangea. I love this stamp and us it frequently. I also applied some Stickles to the border under the matted stamp, which was cut at 8 inches and trimmed to fit my card.
For the inside of my card I used a Inkadinkado Stamp set called Fancy That, stamped in green ink from Martha Stewart. The mat is one of Sharon’s, Fancy Mats 2. It is a square mat but I stretched it out into more of a rectangle slightly to fit my 4 by 5 1/2 card. I cut the mat at 4×5 and as you can see it cut fine, (using my Cricut, no choice right now). I placed my ruler alongside my card to show you how small the holes cut. I find Sharon’s files cut well on the Cricut, and as I said before not because I’m on her CT, they just do.
