New IO Challenge - Celebrate You!

Pencil Shaped card by Dina Kowal


We have an adorable card to share today from Dina Kowal!

This card design is actually a CASE of a card I made a few years ago - a French papercrafts magazine had requested a photo without a watermark so I recreated the project for them.

These are the dies I used:

Code: DIE009-Z
Code: DIE017-V


 The edge of the 'paint' is actually the negative cut of the lower border die. I scored the lines along that panel, just adjusting the position so each point would be on a scoring line. (The yellow pencil ended up with a smudgy glue spot in a place I couldn't cover. :(

The bottom of each pencil is aluminum foil tape - it was easy to die cut and apply. The tips were cut with the tip of the die from a die cut oval to give the curved edge.

The sentiment is from a set I reach for often - Mini Messages - that has inchie-sized sentiments. Those are stamped on 1" matboard squares from Inchie Arts.
