Here is the card I finished today. Let me know what you think.(click on images to enlarge)
I designed the card base in Studio using offset so I could have a pattern surrounding my duct tape shapes. Originally I had wanted to use half circles on the edges but I could not figure out how to do it.
This is the inside of the card. I inked my folders before embossing the duct tape circles. I used pigment inks which I don't seem to have a lot of. Guess I'm going to have to put those on my wish list. The folders used were Swiss Dots,Divine Swirl,Damask,and Paisley. These were the folders I have that I thought would work the best for this project. At first I was going to just go with the Swiss Dots but thought the other folders would give the card a little more character.
I have not yet taken the time to see if I can dye the duct tape with ink or not. Since I goofed and bought gray card stock I decided to leave the duct tape the color it was when I bought it.
I hope I have inspired you and now that I know I can cut duct tape with my Silhouette I'll be using it more often. Especially the pretty pattern and colored duct tape. I can see using it for cards that are going through the mail instead of being delivered in person.
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
