Lamp card

I’d had this design in my mind for a long time and was very pleased to see it executed Smile

All the CS – the lampshade, lamp card and tag - was cut using Cricut, SCAL and an SVG file I created. So was the lampshade. The card was cut at 10.5 inches in height which resulted in a card approx 5.25” in height and 4” in width. The inner tag was cut at 2.5” in width. I found that for the outer tag I’d to remove the “Keep proportions” options to give a uniform border. The base of the lamp was then embossed using Textiles folder. The sentiment was printed using the computer. I first printed the sentiment on a copier paper and then taped the tag on top of it using a double-sided tape so that the sentiment would print at the correct position. That worked like a charm!! It saved me so much trouble!

  • Paper: PTI Simply Chartreuse, White and DCWV DP
  • Others: Cricut, SCAL, Brads, Cuttlebug Textiles embossing folder.
