Speaking of creating, see what you can create using the Freebie of the Week.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I decided to make a card celebrating love! I worked with two adorable cut files which were "made for each other", literally.
I used Dinosaurs in Love and the You Make My Heart Saur Title, as well as a digital pattern from the Love is in the Air Paper Collection, one of my favorites.
To create the card base, I used a Silhouette store cut file. This shaker is a little different in that it's built to the inside of the card. I didn't want to obscure the title in any way, so I made this shaker understated, putting just a handful of hearts in various sizes.
I converted the You Make My Heart Saur Title to print only as I didn't want the shaker contents to get stuck on anything. I attached it to the inside of the card with mounting tape. I adhered the acetate to the back of the patterned paper before attaching it to the card front.
I cut the dinosaurs from scrap paper...always nice to reduce the stash of scraps! As a result, though, the light green layer was textured and the light pink was not. I wanted to create texture, but nothing as deep as an embossing folder; so I ran it through my Big Shot between two very well used cutting plates. The result was a subtle texture; just enough so it didn't stand out next to the green texture.
After I assembled the happy couple, I added some Wink of Stella in their spots and Glossy Accents on the hearts. After I attached them to the card, I found the top of the card to be little "needy" so, using the heart included in the title cut file, I cut three hearts for across the top. Of course, I just had to add more Wink of Stella to them and randomly on the plaid pattern as I'm addicted to using it.
Inside, I took pieces from the title again and created a sentiment to coordinate nicely.
