I love the theme for this week's challenge at Scrapbook Sisters, "Off Centre", it gives you something a bit different to think about. I do have to apologise that it's another card with a number on and I won't give out any prizes if you can guess the ages of at least two of my children as they keep asking me to do number cards for their friend's birthdays.
So on to my DT card:- I used a repositionable tape to place my paper on my card blank and then used an Xcut star Die through the cuttlebug to cut an aperture from the card front. I removed the design paper then placed the larger of the nesting dies centrally over the original cut,inking the edges of all cuts before gluing the paper in place. This left a frame of cream card showing. (I hope this makes sense) I then cut my numbers using the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook,cutting a 1/4 inch larger in the black to give a funky look when the two layers were placed together using a little Pinflair gel.
I then added another star and button tied with hemp.
The back of the card has another die cut star for the greeting to be added along with some paper off cuts and some inky stitching. The inside of the card is layered so that the black shows through the aperture.
I've reached the conclusion that to cut down on the ever growing pile of off cuts and remnants that I'm going to start making tags as I go and enjoyed layering up a little collage of offcuts under a paper clip ( I did glue them down too!)
I also embossed the black base star.
I'm using the card for the following challenges:-
