This Note Card set was created as an entry for at Monica's Creative Madness "Cameo Creations Challenge #4."
I created this card:
With the flowers, I ungrouped the image and just pulled the flower out, so I could color it in a variety of colors--the inside being yellow and orange, different shades of purples. After I was satisfied with the coloring, I changed the line color to accent each flower. THEN, grouping the images for the flower petals, I duplicated about 5 flowers. Each flower I duplicated, I toggled the "transparency" level which can be found via the "FILL COLOR" window. I clicked the "Advanced Options" at the bottom of that sidebar window, and then moved the transparency slide back and forth for each flower.
After printing and cutting with Sadie, I took the leaves portion of my PnC and ran them through my Xyron Sticker Machine. I just knew it'd be easier to adhere them to the card if they went through that machine.
I threaded Close To My Heart's "Waxy Flax" through 3 small buttons, and added some sticky dots to the back of the buttons so they'd stay on the card.
I looked at my card and said, "Voila! It's finished!" Um....
NO this is NOT going to work. WHY?! Because the 3 requirements for this challenge at Monica's blog were:
Guess what-- this is a rectangle card. *sob!* boo hoo, I really was so proud of this card...but NOPE, back to the drawing board. I went to sleep, frustrated but determined to submit an entry.
