What did I love about it? The stamping on the short panel and that great partial die cut image on the front panel. Maile does this neat thing with partial embossing and cutting all at the same time. I have to admit, I have not been successful with this technique, but a little light bulb went on and I realized I could do something very similar using my Silhouette Cameo (probably a million people have thought of this idea already), but it was new to me!
I was happy with this card, but now that I have discovered how to recreate Maile's partial die cut technique, I wanted to take it to another level.
Can you tell that Maile's card really inspired me this week? I am very excited to see what next week's inspiration card looks like...I'm betting CAS, but with a twist!
Cathy--you have outdone yourself with your brilliance. I love both cards. That first one--the partial die cutting and all those layers--truly a one of a kind beauty. And, your second card--just amazing for your son, and the flames coming out of the house, and the fire truck rushing up the road--just fantastic. I am so impressed with all that your Silhouette can do with you at the helm.
Cathy both of your cards are just fantastic! Love your beautiful welcome baby card. Yay for you creating the die with your Silhouette, one of my favourite uses for mine!
They're both so cool...
love the baby card with the medallion stamped on the cutout like that!
But I knew as soon as I saw the firetruck who this card would be for...
and it's so cool!
He's gonna love this one...
it's perfect! :)
Two fabulous cards Cathy! Love the little fire engine card and the clever cut away.
Your baby card is so sweet! The texture is wonderful and I love the little gem in the center!
Love both of these! Love the cut aways. Thanks for joining us at CASE Study this week!
Such a fabulous card! Love the engine going uphill to save everyone!
OMG I LOVE these! That baby one is amazing, and I just love the technique. I am dying for a Cameo! It is my goal to have one by the beginning of summer :) I don't quite understand partial die-cutting either. I'll think I have it and get to my CB and end up making a mistake. Your little fire truck card is beyond clever and so adorable..great for little AND BIG boys ;)!
