Tomorrow is our 20th Anniversary. I created two different cards and used our wedding colors. I can't decide which one I like better. The first card I welded numbers from Varsity Letter for the year we got married and the current year. The second card I welded the shadow layer from You and Me from Phrases.
I welded the numbers from Varsity Letter. The numbers are 2 inches tall. I started out welding the numbers together (like the bottom left part of my mat) and then I copied the weld. I flipped it and welded it to the top of my first set of numbers.
I used Hide Contour to hide the inside of the 9s and 0.
I put the skinny layer on my mat as well. I realized that I used the wrong skinny layer AFTER I ran them through my Xyron!!!
Here is how my welds cut out! I have been having trouble on and off with welding on my Gypsy. When I separate my welded cuts onto different layers, it seems to cut just fine.
Here is the correct skinny numbers!
#1 all put together.
Not onto the second card:
I used the cartridge Phrases to create this card.
I put all of the pieces on my mat at 4 inches. I copied, flipped and welded the shadow layer to create my card base.
I used the same cream, green and orange (peach) cardstock to cut out the pieces.
The first card was more challenging to create (thanks to Gypsy) but it really reminded me of the challenges of being in a marriage. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it just right! The second card reminds me of Lady Gaa Gaa's song You and I. Love her voice!! Plus we live in Nebraska, so Mike is my Nebraska Guy!!
Now I need your help as to which one to give my husband!! I appreciate your input!!
