SCS Dinner Swap

SCS Dinner Swap

Wow, I still cannot believe I made 50 of these cards for the SCS dinner swap in Salt Lake City. I kept the design clean and simple, but used a fun technique to create the blue background panel.

I inked up the new Perfect Details texturz plate with Brilliant Blue ink, placed a 4-1/4″ x 3″ piece of glossy white card stock (glossy side down) on top of it, added a folded 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of copy paper, and ran it through the Big Shot die-cutting machine. The slightly raised pattern remained white while the background turned blue. Don’t you think these primary colors are a perfect fit for this little boy image?

Thanks for stopping by!
