Winnie & Walter Leading Lady: Take Three



Hello again!  I'm excited to be back for my third Winnie & Walter Leading Lady post on the Winnie & Walter blog!  I've really been enjoying spending time with you this month!  Thank you for all of the nice comments you've left on my posts!  

Today's topic focuses on using the Cover Model: Do You See What I See Cutaway to make two totally different looking cards.

Jen Carter Winnie Walter See What I See You Amazing Holiday Cheer

First up is this bright and colorful card.  I die cut the Cover Model: Do You See What I See Cutaway with white cardstock first and then attached that to my cardbase.  I then used a rainbow of colorful cardstock and pieced each row together.  It looks time consuming but it really went quickly.  I just dabbed a dot of glue in each empty space and then inserted the individual pieces one row at a time. 

For the sentiment I die cut the Tagged: Holiday Cheer Cutaways from vellum.  I embossed the yellow "you" that I had stamped using the The Big, The Bold and You stamp set.  The "amazing" was embossed with white and stamped using the same sentiment set.  The little stars were die cut with a die in the Tagged: Holiday Cheer Cutaways.

I like adding a little dimension to my cards so in this photo you can see how I also popped up some of the diamonds in each row.

For my second card I went with a more sophisticated look.  I first die cut the Cover Model die from black cardstock and adhered it to a white card base.  I then chose five colors of cardstock and placed those pieces in the corresponding places using a small dab of glue.  I die cut the "believe" from aqua cardstock using the In a Word: Believe Cutaway die and then layered it on top of two more die cuts to give it dimension.  I stamped the sentiment, from the In Bloom: Debra's Poinsettia with Lydia Evans on black cardstock and then embossed it in white. 


Thanks for visiting today!  Before you go, leave a comment on any (or all) of my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts for a chance to win a $30 gift card to the Winnie & Walter store.

Beautiful twofers, Jen. I’m a fan of rainbow colours, so love your first card. The random popped up pieces are an awesome touch. Like my comment on the W&W blog, I’m kicking myself for waiting till my next order to buy this die. 😉. Can’t wait to buy it.
