Silhouette Sunday 3D Cards
The challenge at the Silhouette Blog Weekly Challenge this week is to use 3D elements in our cards. I have three cards to share with you and in the last two, the 3D elements are on the inside of the card. My first card above was made with a floral card shape from the Silhouette America cutting files store and my favorite new paper: Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered paper from Core'dinations. It is kraft on one side and colored with kraft cracks on the other side. I added floral punches and pearls for the 3D elements. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.
I love this heart shape that spreads out as you open the card. I paid about 10 times as much for a circular similar die a few years ago and now for 99 cents (or less with my subscription), I can get hearts and circles and other shapes that surprise the recipient when they open the card.
My third card today is a birthday card I made for a special friend. I cut the friendship sentiment with my Silhouette Portrait cutting machine and attached it to a white piece with an embossed frame (Sizzix) and embossed butterfly (folder by Cuttlebug, punch by Martha Stewart.) But again the fun part is in the inside of the card:
Silhouette America store for 99 cents or less, make it any size or color you want and personalize the sentiment for the lucky recipient.
I am entering these cards in the Texture challenge at Nutcrafters and the Anything Goes challenge at Bearly Mine.
Stamping and Silhouette smiles, Karen
