Swinging By to Say Hi

Hello from Carolyn with a 3D Stand Up Card (or referred to as a Tent Card) using the newest image by Scrapping with Lisa Designs ....  Swinging By To Say Hi...

Supplies used:
  • Abode Photoshop Elements 12 Brushes
  • 3D Stand Up Card by Lori Whitlock 
  • Silhouette Studio Design Edition software
  • software
  • Stick on buttons
  • Small silver brads from Stampin! Up
  • score tape
I traced the image in Silhouette Studio Design Edition and than copy and pasted the image into where I created a png image, deleting all the white areas without the image, as I wanted it to stand alone on the mat w/out the white areas showing.

In Abode Photoshop Elements I created a green grunge mat using the photoshop brushes (Grunge), saved as a jpeg and than loaded into my Silhouette Studio Design Edition.  Placed the mat on the 3D Stand Up cutfile; and than on a separate page I created the mat, placing the png image on the mat, after I created a oval for the swing to set on.  I colored the png image with copic, bic and Stampin! Up markers - the Bic marker I used for the swing set was going dry but was able to create the bleached look.

Created a Grunge - looking mat for the back side and placed the 2nd half of the sentiment (traced, ungrouped and divided the sentiment so I can place one part on front, and the 2nd half on back.)

The 3rd view if of the 3D Stand Up card from a side view showing how I attached the pieces together.  This card base can be cut out by hand (various utube videos out there with tutorials; and also there is tutorials on, but I wanted a cardbase that was easy to cut out and corrected size.  My first attempt at cutting this out was not a great cut...but I believe it was the cardstock used - too flimsy.

Head on over to Sunsational Stamps and have a happy crafting day.
