The card I made today was a total experiment. I was on the Technique Junkies Newsletter site and saw an advertisement for their Move It and Shape It CDs. Fortunately, you can link to the pictorial Table of Contents, which I followed and found a very cool Oriental Screen card. I thought I would give it a try. I didn't have the tools that the creator of the card used, but I came pretty close.
I used three different stamp sets from Mark's Finest Papers on this card -- Asian Delights, Mother's Magnolias, and Marsh Silhouettes (a brand-new set which will be released next week). I figured the most important measurement was across the top with the "scallops," so I cut a piece of black cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and then punched the border. It almost made it across. I then just trimmed off the edge and scored between the sections -- which are about 1 7/8". I then measured the centers at the bottom and punched out the "legs" of the screen with the label punch. I cut four red panels 1 1/2" x 3 3/4". I created the collage on a piece of white cardstock 3 5/8" x 5 1/2", which I then cut into four 3 5/8" x 1 3/8" panels.
Just to let you know, I fully intend to purchase those two CDs in the future. Technique Junkies Newsletter will be participating in StampFest Orlando at the end of June. I will definitely check out their booth!
