I almost never use the numbers in my Thickers and sticker sheets.
So for this layout, I set about using up numbers from green, white and aqua sets to match my background paper and since green is my favorite color. The '50' is cut with the Silhouette. After working on it a bit, I realized I needed an inside border. On the Silhouette, this is called an Internal Offset. The video shows the process.
The idea for this was inspired by the card I CASEd in yesterday's post from Cheiron Brandon. Here is her card. She has Washi behind her numbers and I used the Thickers.
There are two discontinued Stampin' Up! cardstocks on the page as well as some very old chipboard from Oriental Trading. I'm really using the part that normally gets tossed so that felt good to put it to use.
My favorite part is the flower. I had one already cut with the Silhouette. It was one of my test cuts when I first go the machine and had never done anything with it. I could have cut another from a matching paper but my computer was back downstairs by that time so I had some fun altering it with glaze and ink.
So all this turned into a bit longer video than usual here or at YouTube:
I love this using up the Thickers idea this month as I'm really enjoying my pages. If you aren't a Thickers collector, you can do the same thing with stickers.
Thanks for stopping by!
