Snip & Tuck

I think this technique is way cool and I give credit to Julie Davison and her blog is    Julie uses 12"x 3" and folds in half for a 6x3 card when done. Here are my takes on her styles and have made a standard A2 card and cut one to fit an elongated envelope I have as well.  That card measures 3 3/8 x 6 1/4 I have tons of envelopes of different sizes and I really like the idea of custom making a card for the envelope, so, that's what I did in the case of the Happy Graduation card.
So tada..

 Naturals White, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple & Ink, Gumball Green Ink
Crumb Cake, Naturals White, Early Espresso, Soft Suede Ink, Marina Mist Ink
More of a masculine take on this type of card...
After stamping the world, I took a blending pen and pulled it over the ink and coloured the land portion of the world then I took my aqua painter and some Marina Mist watered down and coloured in the water areas on the map
I just love demonstrating new ideas!!! We did these at last nights class.
Hope you like them.
There were only 3 of us last night and with that, I always seem to have time on my hands to make myself some cards. So, while I was sitting and talking, this idea popped into my head and I had to go with it.  What ya think?

Thanks for looking

  1. I love you snip and tuck cards and the one you made on the fly. Thank you for sharing the technique, but I notice there is a triangle shaped layer and was wondering how you did that.

    Lovely cards
