Hi all! I’m squeaking in with two cards today for the MFT Summer School lessons.
First up, is my card for the Rule of Thirds lesson, which was the first lesson.
I started with a Grout Gray card base and a panel of Neenah Solar White cut with Blueprints 13. I cut a rainbow from the traditional rainbow colors and a pair of clouds. I added sequins to my clouds. After piecing my rainbow together and gluing it down, I popped up my glitzy clouds at each end. The sentiment is from the Ala Mode set of the same name.
To see how I decided upon my card layout, here’s my rainbow on my grid of thirds.
So I cut my Hugs & Kisses cover up plate four times — Neenah Solar White, Razzle Berry, Pink Lemonade and Bubblegum. When I cut it with the white, I was fortunate that most of the x & o stayed in the die cut. I taped up the back side with scotch tape over the rows I wanted to keep (and replaced any x & o that fell out). Then I added in rows of pink. I stamped “miss you” from the Written in Watercolor set in Razzle Berry twice with my MISTI for a nice crisp sentiment. It sits within a Stitched Circle Frame of Razzle Berry. To finish it off, I added in sequins in all of the o centers in a complimentary color.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
