Before I introduce you to the new Runway Inspired challenge, I want to point out that I have recently added two new pages to this site. Cards for Healing and Classes. So if you have some time, go check them out 🙂
Now on to the challenge, we have a fabulous inspiration photo this week; one I particularly like as it has square/grid elements! Check it out:
Well, I was a bit unimaginative and just went ahead and cut out a number of 3/4″ yellow squares to work with.
Here is my second card that I made with those squares:
The grid pattern is a free digital from Mel McCarthy. You can view all her sets here at flickr.
The execution of this card was quite simple; I adhered the yellow squares to a piece of square clear sheet, then glued the black die cut on it. Added the label maker sentiment, then adhered my square panel with foam tape. Done within about 15 minutes.
I just mention that this was my second card. The first card had a similar design concept, but was a lot more time consuming; definitely not a practical way to make a card!
Here I first adhered the squares to a scrap grid panel and cut out the negative of the die. Then I adhered all the yellow pieces to a black panel. The tiniest of all pieces was the one at he bottom left corner of the top right square.
I stamped the Thank you (from Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Words) on gray card stock, trimmed and adhered to the black panel. Once again, the entire panel was raised with foam tape.
This week, the winner’s prize is a $15 gift card to Simon Says Stamp!
