Here it is, Die Cuttin’ Divas’ October sketch!
I turned it vertically and came up with this:
This gorgeous box office is from the Art Deco Cricut cartridge. It’s a birthday card for my son-in-law who is involved in theater. He’s a very talented artist as well and appreciates lots of different styles, so I thought this cut would be the perfect fit for him. I used the colors recommended in the handbook.
I used all the layers, including the shadow. It’s popped up using foam tape to give it added dimension. Since the card base is dark brown, I lined the inside with white so I can write the sentiment in regular ink.
I cut this using the Cricut Explore. It’s much easier if you don’t fight with the machine. I’m so used to SCAL and the Silhouette software, and really like those. I like how you can plan your mat, place all the papers on it at once, and cut everything all at the same time. BUT to do that with the Cricut Explore, it’s really a battle. So I just gave in and did one paper at a time, using the same upper left-hand corner of my mat every time. It was time consuming but less aggravating than trying to lay everything on the virtual mat and jumping through all the hoops to make it stay there. Luckily, I also had a project cutting on my Cameo at the same time so I didn’t get too bored . . . 🙂
Anyway, I hope you join us Die Cuttin’ Divas for our sketch challenge this month! It’s another keeper!
