Hello you lovely Dottie followers, Louise here,
Before I begin, don't link the title of this post to the card above because it really did NOT take just minutes :). However it was very popular and I have been asked to make more. If you are like me you don't usually have the luxury of spending hours just on one card so today I would like to show you just how easy it actually is to make super speedy cards using the Charmed Downloads. Here is a quick 'how to' for a simpler and quicker version of the card above.
Print out your bride image twice to the desired size. The secret to speedy results is to print out the ready coloured ones. Don't forget, if you are not impressed with the vibrancy or colour your printer decides to give you, you can still brighten up elements of the image using your usual colouring technique but the main part of the job is done for you. Below you will see I have recoloured the pink border.
To create the 3D ribbon effect take the image that you want to have showing and cut around the lines where you want to curl it up - as shown above. Now simply glue the back - avoiding the 3D parts and fix it onto the other image. You can do this method with plain or contrasting paper behind if you prefer but I like to have the true colours of the image showing through. Fix to your card base.
So there you have it! Try this 3D technique out on other images too, it's quick but effective. Enjoy!
