Hi there!

I hope you are all doing great on this beautiful Wednesday!

I have a card to share inspired by the sketch at Less is more .





The moment I saw this cutting file ( Design ID #96969 ) in the Silhouette store, I fell in love with it! Yes you read it right the first time, it IS a cutting file! But I soon realised after downloading it, that there's a lot of small detail for the scale on which I want to use it (that is for card making of course )

So what to do...

I decided to use the fill option in my Silhouette programme, followed by the print and cut function. Instead of cutting it after printing, I replaced the blade with a Silhouette sketch pen, and created the colored outline for visual interest and to make it pop!

I love the effect of the outline sentiment when you use the sketch pens!

I added 3 enamel dots to finish off the card.

This is the sketch:

                                                       


Thanks for visiting me today!

Love this Hannelie!! I saw this in the store, and thought the same thing you did -- too many small pieces, but with your changes, this is incredible!! Absolutely love the polka dots and the colors you've chosen for this beauty. Fantastic card. The enamel dots finish it off perfectly too. Bev

Absolutely gorgeous, Hannelie! I wanted to see the detail, as I saw this on instagram. So is it a one layer card? Stunning!

I can see why you fell in love with the gorgeous image. How very clever of you to make the adjustments to the file so you can use this for cardmaking. Amazing card Hannelie and thanks for sharing your creative process.

Geri said...

Yep...I also noticed this in the Silhouette store and like Bev, I ran for the hills thinking that there was No Way I would get a clean enough cut! But you, my dear clever friend, figured out a beautiful solution. Looks amazing!!!

Joe, vrou, wat 'n absolute unieke skepping!!! Ek wonder wie het daai briljante prentjie geskep wat jy so meesterlik vervolmaak het vir 'n kaartjie!!! Perfek so met die polka dots en die pienk omlyning!!! Die sentiment is so oorspronklik soos net jy dit kan doen!!! 'n Wonderlike stukkie kuns, vrou!!!
