My post for Connie Can Crop today uses the cute Bears Under Umbrella CF from our sponsor, Paper Crafting World. Every once in a while, I like to make two cards to provide you with a comparison of techniques. Here is a side by side comparison:
The card on the left converts the cut file to print only while the card on the right has all the cut pieces, shaded and glued into place. There’s a big difference; but if you’re short on time, the left card still looks good to the eyes of the recipient. Here’s a closer look at each of them:
I’ve mentioned numerous times how I think sponging the edges of paper piecings makes a big difference. I think you can appreciate the dimension it adds here. As an added touch on the cut card, I coated the raindrops with Glossy Accents. Here’s a confession. I didn’t realize until just now I never drew mouths on the bears…but they’re not telling anyone.
Inside the card, I flipped the image and had the two little bears floating in a puddle. In this case, I used the print only option on both.
I made this card for a friend who is going through a difficult time right now. I hope this will bring a smile to her face!
