I made a center step easel card. The card, image frame, trees and leaves are all Silhouette cut files. My image is a Tiddly Inks digi called Wryn - hanging around. I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils. First I used the offset feature in my Silhouette to make a mask of my image and then I took a cloud shape and placed it around inside the frame overlapping either the frame or image. The ones that overlapped the image I used the weld feature to weld them together. For the ones that overlapped the frame I used the subtract feature and moved the parts away that were not needed. Then I grouped them all together and cut out my mask. Took a little trial and error but I got a pretty good mask. I also took a screen shot of it so that if you could make sense of my description, lol.
A sunflower, maple leaf brads, some orange gingham ribbon and a raffia bow that I tied myself make up the rest of my embellishments. Will use this next time I need a Hang In There or Get Well Soon card.
On a more personal note, my Grandma celebrated her 99th birthday on Oct. 12th. We had a party for her on Oct. 13th. My youngest has a cold so she and Daddy had to stay home but my Kaylee and I were very blessed to be there for the celebration. She is a remarkable woman that still lives in her own apartment. You can also see Kaylee's little sling for her broken arm in this picture. Hope all my fellow Canadians had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend of good food and even better family time.
