The second challenge is a new challenge blog dedicated to my favorite tool...The Silhouette! The blog is The Cameo Spotlight and this week's challenge is to make a card with a summer theme and I had fun doing just that!
I don't usually do square cards because they require extra postage but I was game for the challenge. For my card, I tried a little something new. I sized and cut the Wave Border shape on two different sheets of cardstock. I then adhered the two cuts together to make a thicker wave to use as an embossing tool for my vellum. Using my wave, vellum, rubber mats, and my die cut machine; I created an embossed wave pattern on my vellum. I then inked the back side of my vellum to give it some color. Just another way to make the Silhouette all the more handy! To make the duck floaty, I created my floaty shape with two ovals and merged it with the duck from Lori Whitlock. It made the perfect little summer floaty! Check it out:
