In this month's project for The Bug Bytes design team, I am using paper straws and Washi tape. These two things are new to me in my crafting experience and I wanted to see what I could do with them.
Here's the front of my card
Here's the inside
I have a bad habit of not sketching out my cards. That is probably why it takes me so dang long to finish one!!! I just tend to go with what comes to mind. I decided that I wanted to change a cut file in the Silhouette store to a Print and Cut file. I chose this Eagle banner. I cut out the banner but then I had no idea where to go from there.
So played around with another cut for the back ground, but I couldn't get it to come together so I trashed it!
I didn't want to waste all those cute little stars so I used them to go on top of the straws. I colored them with my Copic markers. Then I cut 3 pieces of straws at 2.25 inches and adhered them to the back of the banner, with my glue gun.
Then I placed the banner and straws on top of the card. You can see how the straws lift the image off of the page for that dimensional look.
