ID: MC June/16 - Golden Gate Bridge - ECD Thinking Of You - In A Perfect World card
size: 7"w x 5"h

Created: June 24, 2016

Suzanne has started a new blog and it's all about digital cutting... this is my 3rd post and am using one of the newest files available on the Silhouette onLine store "Golden Gate Bridge"

This is what the part look like in the file 


I'm using on of an A Way With Words die sets from Elizabeth Craft Designs created by Suzanne Cannon "Thinking Of You" also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using a quote stamp from  Quietfire Design  

("In A Perfect World" 4pce set); 


Please note: opening the files in the Silhouette Studio software is best. Opening in other software like SCAL or ECAL etc, may change some of the score/cut lines.

I opened the "Golden Gate Bridge" onto my mat.

Placed a standard image of a frame onto my mat to create the window, sized it to my finished card size, then resized the bridge image to fit within the confines of my frame.

I copied and pasted the frame to page 2. Placed another basic rectangle image on my mat and sized it to the same size as the frame, then placing the rectangle alongside the frame and welding the 2 together.

Placed another rectangle to partially fill the window frame opening. I created it so it would fill half the window.

I used one of the basic images for the state of Illinois (gave me the best contour to create my hilly area...). Placed it along my center line, stretched it, copied and pasted it a couple times to fill the whole width.

I then selected everything and weld it together.

This is a preview of the welding which you should always check prior cutting.

Everything was cut from white cardstock.

The hilly area was stamped with Bees Wax "Coastal Rocks" using "Pumice Stone" and here and there with "Ground Espresso". I just kept inking and stamping till I covered the whole width.

The water area was sponged with "Broken China" and then some "Blueprint Sketch" in a streaky fashion. Used the same technique but without re-inking the sponge for the sky. Added a couple doodle birds.

The outer frame was dry embossed using Darrice "Brick Wall" moving the folder to emboss the whole frame. Sponged with "Pumice Stone" and high points hit direct to paper with "Weathered Wood". Adhered to card front.

The bridge was inked with Distress mini direct to paper with "Carved Pumpkin" then embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Thanksgiving" embossing powder. Adhered to frame.

Die cut the "Thinking of You" from white cardstock, inked with "Black Soot" and embossed with Emerald Creek "Onyx Frost" embossing powder. Adhered to frame

On the floor: cut a rectangle the width of the card by 1.25", scored at the 1/4".

Die cut the letters from black cardstock and adhered to the stopper adding a deep pink gel heart.
