I was so excited to get the Slim Line Die-cutting system from Picket Fence Stamps. 8 dies and so many possibilities! as soon as I saw the set, I knew what I was going to do first!
Picket Fence Slim Line Die-cutting system (SDCS-100)
Black cardstock (American Crafts Smooth)
White cardstock (American Crafts Textured)
Distress Inks (see images for colors)
adhesive (Score Tape
White Gel pen (Sakura)
Susanna Font* (Creative Fabrica)
electronic die cutting machine (eclips 2 and eCal3 software with pen tool)
Die cut the slim line card front using the narrow rectangle and the tree line dies using the black cardstock. I set the treeline die about 1/2 inch down from the top of the rectangle.
Create you sunset background using the distress inks, blender tool on the white textured cardstock. Blend the colors as shown in the images below.
Adhere the sunset image behind the trees cutout.
Using your electronic die cutting machine and software and the Susanna font, create your sentiment. The sentiment measures W 1.594 x H 0.630 (inches) Make sure that you've set the text lines to DRAW. Place the sentiment as desired on your card. Proceed to the cutting window, making sure you have the settings to DRAW, and you're using the pen tool, draw the sentiment on your cardstock.
This is a very simple card front and easy to complete in just a few minutes.
A stack would be easy to put together in a short period of time... and you could create a number of sentiment to go with your backgrounds. Try a galaxy or a starry night or a snowy night. Add a little "snow" to the trees for more dimension and interest.
