No, I couldn't resist the to/two pun in the title. Two more Hope You Can Cling To cards today! The first one is for Victoria's H.O.P.E. challenge, which stands for Having Only Paper Elements. Of course I had to dust off the ol' Silhouette for this one! I was inspired by Ellie Augustin's Green Christmas card on page 8 of Papercrafts Holiday Cards & More (psst...take a gander at page 61 while you're there). Here's my pink take on it:
I typed each letter individually, made them all 2x2, then welded them together in Silhouette Studio. I also tilted the O like the iconic LOVE statue. Cut out from PTI Berry Sorbet (hint: this is a super-thick paper, so I told it to recut 5 times. And yes, I finally broke down and ordered a new blade.) I adhered it with foam tape, then added a punched pink ribbon.
You would not believe the number of misstamps this card involved (which is the one issue with one layer cards). Ugly green ink, crooked trunk, sun stamp falling off the block, inky fingers...arg!
I'm also entering this one into the One Layer Wonder challenge this week. The challenge is to make and send a one layer card to someone who needs some support. Additionally, Jennifer is asking you to make a $5 donation to the cause of your choice. May I recommend Swimming for Katie?
