Parents’ Day was July 22nd this year. Designers from Paper Crafting World are showcasing projects that celebrate parents.
I decided to make two note cards. You might know that I send monthly notes to one of my aunts and one of my cousins. These note cards are for them!
It’s a window card! Here is how I made it:
First, I created a 8.5 x 5.5 inch rectangle using the Sure Cuts A Lot shape library, then positioned the half-circle from that library on top of the rectangle where I wanted it. I highlighted both shapes and clicked Path, Exclude. This gave me the opening in my card.
Next, I imported my butterfly and, before I ungrouped the file, I moved it over the opening in my card and sized it so the base (largest piece) overlapped the opening.
I ungrouped the file and moved all the other pieces out of the way.
Then I selected just the card and the butterfly on it, clicked Path, Union.
I copied and pasted this card and set if way to the left of the virtual mat so I could cut a mat layer for the front of my card.
After everything was cut out, I trimmed 1/8 inch from all four sides of the mat, then ran it through the cuttlebug, assembled and adhered the butterfly. Here’s a closeup:
Now it’s your turn to show us your parent projects. Link them up over at Paper Crafting World!
