Today, for my Connie Can Crop design team post, I’m using a digital image by our sponsor this month, Sasayaki Glitter.
This particular image is named Shy in the Sky, and he sure is a cutie. I opted to use a Z-fold card to showcase him.
To begin, I brought the image into my Silhouette design screen; sized and reversed it. I traced it, turning it into a print and cut. The propeller was cut a second time, so I could pop it for added dimension. I colored him with Copic markers and added a bit of bling by Eyelet Outlet; an Enamel Dot on the propeller and Round Jewels on the wing, darkening them both a bit to match the card stock. Here’s a closer look at him:
The card base and band was cut from Night of Navy card stock, starting with the Pop Up Box Card cut file by Lori Whitlock. I used the Carried Away Designer Series Paper as the perfect backdrop for this high-flyin’ pilot. For the band, I took the traced outline from the image and welded it for additional support for the image. The inserts were included with the cut file.
I created a little banner to attached to the back of the plane and the remainder of the sentiment appears when you open the card.
And here’s a final look down from the top so you can see how the inserts are placed in the center square.
Before I leave you, I want to remind you about Connie Can Crop’s monthly challenge. This month, the theme is, “It’s a Guy Thing”. You can make any sort of project you want so long as it follows the theme. One winner, picked at random, will receive a prize from our sponsor. The team will also pick their three favorites…those selected will receive a badge for their blog or social medial…plus bragging rights!
