Inspired by Jean's Class
I really enjoy taking classes at Impress Cards and Crafts in Tukwila (Seattle), especially classes by Jean Okimoto who is on the Memory Box Design Team. Using a Memory Box die, she designed this card for us to make. I loved it so much that I made my own version for my nephew's 50th birthday.
This is Jean's card . . .
And this is my version . . .
The Memory Box die is "Wave Ribbon Collage" (#94005). Jean's version snipped the frame off to create the horizontal lines. The vertical lines are the negative pieces between the lines of the die. Those lines are weaved through the horizontal pieces and pushed together. Clever!
I used wrapping paper for the first run of the die; black cardstock was used for the second run of the die. My sentiment stamp was stamped onto black card stock with VersaMark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder; foam mount tape was used to adhere it to the base card.
Memory Box: Wave Ribbon Collage Die (94005)
Picket Fence Studios: What the Fluffy stamp set
Stampendous: white embossing powder
Unknown source: red droplets
Adhesives: foam mounting tape; Scor-Tape from Elizabeth Craft Designs
Black 65# card stock
Conqueror: 110# card stock in white (base card)
This die is going to become a staple in my "most used" die category because it makes a quick card design. Jean showed how versatile this die can be when we think outside the box!
