I did this little card yesterday. You might recognize the little skunk from my spring blog header.
I had a heck of a time cutting out my skunk with my silhouette. It would get to the tail then quit. I thought it was broken. So I typed some letters and it cut those, which led me to believe it was the file. I had to draw the little "stinker's" outline all over again.
Matt, my dh, draws all the illustrations for me. Isn't it handy to have an illustrator for a hubby?
The little stinker is in my computer and I can mass make this cute card now!! Great for stuff like Etsy, eh? Invites, Christmas cards... gotta love hybrid. :)
I stole the copy from a card I got from my friend Joscie, it says "I stink... you're sweet."
Here's the outside:
Close up, I used pop dots to give the skunk and the sentiment some dimension. Then to add a little sparkly zip, I put clear stickles on his tail, black stickles on his eyes and pink stickles on his nose.
And just a quick shot of the inside:
I sent this card to Jennifer McGuire along with my HELLO KATIE card, thanking her for her involvement with the card drive.
We have a busy weekend in store, I can't wait. I feel great... no more nausea, don't have to take those crazy meds. Yippee. We'll be spending the day in Ligonier Pennsylvania for their Fort Ligonier Days celebration. Big, big parade. I hope to get lots of photos. I love the parade there, it's the best. Really long, but so fun.
I'm taking my 18 year old niece along with us. Then afterward, weather permitting, I'd like to get her casual senior picture shots. I have some great ideas. I hope they turn out.
That's it for today. Take care, have a great weekend!!
