The challenge this week at Less is More is really a doozy! I really had to put my thinking cap on for this one! The challenge is to create a card relating to technology! I know we use technology every day, but how to put that on a card!?
Here's my take...and since it was so difficult for me...I only finished 2 cards!
The image for this first one was cut with the Cameo. I used part of a cut file from Silhouette called computer buttons. I cut out the portion for just the pause button, placed it where I wanted it to be on the card, then created the computer generated sentiment and made it curved to fit around the button. Then I printed the sentiment on one side of the card stock and cut the button and tag from the other side of the card stock. I colored the cut pieces with several shades of green Copics. I also colored a small piece of card stock with a silver pen to put behind the button and then raised the button off the page with foam tape. I added a sentiment to the top tab portion of the button with a white Signo pen.
It looked a little plain, so I added a fine line of silver around all four edges of the card base.
For my second card, I thought about how often my grandchildren share their photos with my via Instagram, so I found an Instagram logo pic and created a duplicate to match it in the Silhouette program. I popped the "camera" on fun foam and painted the bottom portion of the camera with clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment is also from the Silhouette store. I cut it out 4 times, layered it, then painted the top layer with white Wink of Stella. I added a few dashed lines around the outer edges of the card base and rounded the corners on the bottom.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit! Hope you'll come back soon! Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
