Gallery Idol, round 3
Thanks to your sweet votes, I am still in the running for Gallery Idol!
The challenge this week is to use the same product to make both a masculine and a feminine card. I went with a material that I have used once before- popsicle sticks! Woodgrain is SO popular right now, and popsicle sticks are a cheap and easy way to bring in a lot of texture and interest.
Here's my pair of cards:
...and here's how I did it......start out with plain old craft/popsicle sticks- I chose the thicker ones:
This step might not be necessary, but I did it anyway- score the end of the stick with a craft knife:
....and cut along the score line. I used an old pair of scissors, because this would likely ruin nice scissors:
A nice clean cut:
I assembled the different pieces on my card base, and held them together with some tape, so I knew I would have a perfect fit when it came time to glue 'em down:
Here's the close-up on the masculine card:
For the feminine card, I took one of the sticks and "whitewashed" it with white ink. Sadly, the white tint is not really showing up in the photo:
I would love it if you took the time to vote. You can get all of the contest info here, and you can check out a direct link to my entry HERE or in my sidebar :)
