2015-06-26; Correcting a crooked image & ornamental iron 2


A few weeks ago I got together with my girlfriend and made this stamped image. It’s lovely and I love the sponged background, but I did stamp the sentiment just a bit crooked. How to fix that you ask? I wacked it up into pieces and made two (count em’, two!) cards out of the one piece.

Here you can see the stamped image that I started with. Very faintly you maybe able to see pencil lines around two sections. I had made myself a little template so I could see where the cutting lines should be.

And here are the two cards I made using that one stamped piece. I did add a sentiment to the second one. I’ll show you a better view in just a bit.

I used the Cricut cartridge Ornamental Iron 2 and cut at 4″. You can find this cut design on page 58 of the book. This gave me a finished card size of 4″ tall x 6″ wide.

Here is the orange version. Originally the sentiment was stamped a little crooked. When I trimmed it down to fit into the center opening of the card I was able to change the angle just a bit and make it look straight again.

This second piece did not have a sentiment so I added one from the Cloud 9 design set; Simple Thoughts-Friends.

    I didn’t think the sentiment was all that crooked and it was a beautiful card!!! But you made a great save and now have two great cards with the one design.

    LOVE the sponging background you have done and then made three beautiful cards out of it. Clever! Love it all. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Anything Goes!
