Finally, we reached the last two cards of the this workshop found in Wishes. The cutting diagrams on page 68 made cutting and assembling these cards a cinch. The best thing is that with the diagrams you'll end up with 20 cards -- two each of ten designs.
Here is the ninth card:
And last, but not least, is a fun card. I've been reading that mustaches are fashionable right now. So of course our Artiste Cartridge Collection is going to include one!
The saying has been inked in Twilight ink and then rolled in Pacifica ink. I did stamp the saying on a Artiste cut out because I thought the White Daisy Dimensional Element would be too bright. The saying is stamped, instead, on Colonial White paper. For the underlying mat I cut another word bubble out of Cashmere cardstock 0.5" larger than the saying size (the size of that is found on the stamp carrier). I simply cut the tail off. I cut the tail off because it didn't match up correctly with the saying tail. And I didn't want to have to "guess" the size of the oval. I could have found the oval on the Art Philosophy Cartridge and increased the size too, but what if the shapes were slightly different. Also, this way, I didn't have to change cartridge.
The Sorbet cardstock is direct to paper ink distressed with -- you guessed it -- Sorbet ink.
And that's it. Wishes is a great book to own if you like making cards. It can be found online as we no longer sell it. However, I'm delighted to tell you we have an alternative. We now have a new how-to publication called Make It from Your Heart which will come out with every new Idea Book. The cost is $7.95 plus shipping and tax, has 16 two-page layouts, two one-page layouts, and 12 card designs. The publication has updated artwork and plenty of tips to keep your creative juices going.
