masculine recipe for As You See It challenge

Hello there and welcome to my second post of the day. This time it’s for the new challenge at As You See It and this one is a recipe! There are five elements to include in your card, which makes for a very interesting challenge and I’ve combined them with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches as well.

I started with Clarity’s ‘clockwork’ aperture die, which I cut into the front of a 6×6 kraft card blank (that’s my earth tone), then added one of the ‘doodle frame-it’ aperture dies around it.

I wrapped a piece of twine around each side of the card, sticking the ends on the reverse side. I had to cut a small slit along the card crease to do the left hand side, which I fed the twine through. I then attached a piece of Clarity’s ‘Antarctica’ designer card behind the die cut, which picked up the blue tones for AYSI but more importantly hid the ends of the twine!

I added one of Clarity’s word stickers which I’d mounted on a scrap of the ‘Antarctica’ card and finished with a couple of blue Glossies on each side along the twine.

Do come and join us at As You See It – we’d love to see how you use our recipe and there’s lots of inspiration from my talented design team-mates. Our challenge runs until Thursday 17th November.

  1. Wow! Deborah, I love this die! I’m kind of a closet steampunk lover, so anything with gears really appeals to me! This was a perfect design for the challenge and I love how you did the blue tone background!

  2. Top score for this one, Deborah! I do love a touch of steam punk and that’s just what that wonderful die screams. The soft blues in behind – marvellous, as is the division of the front with your twist of twine, Fabulous concept and fabulous execution!
