The Cutting Edge Challenge #3

It’s time for the another Cutting Edge Challenge! Our inspiration this week is an amazing card created by Design Team member Lisa Addesa.

There’s so much about Lisa’s card that inspires me! Here’s my take.

Challenge3I was drawn to Lisa’s card’s design, featuring an embossed card base and a card panel with negative die cut hearts in rainbow colors. I substituted the hearts with stars, and I made the panel black rather than white. The yellow, green and orange stars on my card are negative cuts – I ran the panel through the Big Shot with three different star dies. I then backed the panel with circles cut in those colors. The pink and blue stars are adhered to the top of the panel.

We’d love to have you play along! Head on over to The Cutting Edge Challenge blog where you’ll  find inspiration from other members of the team, the rules and regulations and the InLinkz tool for you to link up your project!

  1. Creative layering for your stars. Your card has so much dimension without being too “fat” to send. I like the embossed stars on your white base. Did you use an embossing folder or embossing paste? Either way they add a nice touch.

    1. Hi Heather – it’s a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I tried dry embossing with a star stencil but just wasn’t able to achieve the depth I liked with that method.

  2. Jean I just found you, thanks to Jennifer McGuire, I am so impressed with your cards and have signed up to receive your blogs. You are so fresh in your designs and so simple and cute. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us.
