I finally have my camera back and can start blogging about the new things I have been making since getting my Cricut. I love having a digital die cutting machine, and am already looking at purchasing another with a larger mat and greater functionality. So far I am leaning towards the Silhouette Cameo as it is compatible with programmes like SCUT, doesn't require cartridges, and Silhouette have a massive online store with thousands of individual svg files for purchase.
First up is a sweet little card with a postage stamp edge that I created to be suitable for either male or females. Myy partner is from the States and I thought this would make a good general themed card for him to send back home for various occasions.
The card is created from plain white card to emulate a regular postage stamp, and the I aged the edges inside and out with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The postcards are taken from a paper by Kaisercraft which have been roughed up with a paper distressing tool, and the sweet little bear is from Teddy Bo, and he has been coloured with Copic pens.
I am entering this into the Teddy Bo Challenge this fortnight, the theme of which is 'distress it'.
