I ordered a new textured plate recently … an Ezcut impression metal plate. The problem is … I am not quite sure how to use it with my Big Shot … so if anyone has any suggestions … I would appreciate your help. This edge-ing took several tries & different sandwiches before I got an impression! It wasn’t very clear … but perhaps that is how it is supposed to look? I realise it isn’t a die cut … but I had hoped the impression would be a little more distinctive!? The edges for each of the three borders were ‘fussy cut’ … took a little time … but the result was worth it!
I pulled out my trusty “Very Vintage” jumbo wheel stamp for the background … the perfect stamp for layering with other images! Sorry … I forgot to add it to the card recipe! There is a little bit of hand colouring with the Pool Party marker on the Very Vintage background. The designed is CASE-d from Sylvia-Anne from Poppy’s Papercraft Patch. I just loved her card! I changed the design a little … but basically it is the same. Sylvia-Anne’s card is a different size & shape … a little more square.
A very busy weekend … Birthday BBQ brekkie at the beach for my M-I-L … 2 X knockout semi-finals soccer matches for the BIG BOYS! Birthday dinner @ “The Steakhouse” for my nephew’s 18th! Then after church on Sunday … we will have Gav’s mum & dad over for Father’s Day! So … don’t be surprised if you don’t see me over the weekend! Hope you have a lovely weekend!
