The ready card measures 8 3/4″ X 5″. An unusual size, but I had to increase the size for proper placement of the flop circles.
Here is the rough draft I drew, before proceeding with the card.
I measured and found the diameter of the flop circle to be 2 3/4″, the length of the card was calculated by adding 1/4″+ 2 3/4″ + 2 3/4″ + 2 3/4″ + 1/4″ = 8 3/4″
Then I took two sheets of Neenah Solar White Cardstock measuring 8 3/4″ X 7 1/2″ and 8 3/4″ X 7″.
I started creating the base of the card by scoring the first sheet at 1 1/2″ , 3″, 5 1/2″ and then 7″. Please note a small section of 1/2″ will be left. We will use this to attach the second sheet. Now the second sheet to be scored at 2 1/2″ and 4″.
After scoring, I stuck both the sheets together to form the base of the card. I then went on to place the Dienamics Flop Card – Circle die on the base to create the flop elements. Here is a rough sketch of the how I placed the die.
I then matted the base with some pattern papers keeping in mind the MFT Color Challenge
I have also used Die-namics Inside & Out Stitched STAX – Circle dies.
I had colored my images using Copic Sketch Markers and then stuck the same using some foam tape to give extra dimensions. The markers I have used are:
Bear : E47, E44, E43, E41
Dog: C5, C3, C1, C0
In the end I stamped sentiments from the same set and also one from MFT Because You stamp set.
