Here is today's card:
The base card is measured at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I ran it through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder. For the frame, I used my gypsy along with Elegant Edges. The image I used is located on page 48 of the manual. I took the <Scallops> and stretched it out to measure 5 1/4 x 3 1/2.
Then I used the Sentimentals cartridge. You can locate the lamp on page 40 of this manual. I cut the image and lamp shade at 2 1/2". I also ran the lamp shade through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.
I attached the pieces together of the lamp with my ATG gun. Then I went ahead and wrapped a very thin white ribbon around the shade and tied a knot.
For the lamp post, I wanted to add some character to it. So I found this really small stamp from Hero Arts Clear Stamps "Everyday Sayings". Got out my white ink pad and stamped it right on top. I adhered the lamp to the frame with foam tape.
This saying was not a stamp, instead it was computer generated. The font I used was CK Cute at 28". I added some dots along the side of the "B" with my black zig pen. This took some time because I needed to figure out where I wanted the saying to be placed before cutting the frame. So this part might take you some time.....
For this, I used three different sized clear rhinestones. Got out my Bic Mark It Permanent markers and colored each one with the black. The red circle is just some cardstock. I used my Studio G circle punch and punched it out. I think I got it from Walmart, if not, Michael's. Then everything was glued down to the frame.
For my final touch, I wrapped some black ribbon around and through the scallops and tied another knot. Then I put foam tape behind the frame and adhered to the main card.
