2 sketches 4 U Laura #28




I really loved the sketch this week from Laura from over at 2 sketches 4 U It was really easy to use and open for anything! So this week I decided to do an old favourite of mine and that is to cut the title from the edge of the card. This works very well with smaller words, so the word "you" has been cut away from the edge of the card. I have used some old chipboard alphabet letters that I have as my template for each letter and it works particularly well with a chunky type font (I don't have the patience for thinner letters!).


I have used Kaiser paper and pearls, American crafts foam alpha and ribbon, Bazzill cardstock and a white Gel pen to outline the letters.


Thanks for looking!
