今日は、One Layer Wednesday Challenge 8のために2つカードを作りました。今週のチャレンジは、マスクを作って、それを背景を作るのに使うこと、です。

Hello everyone~!
I've made two CAS card for this weeks One Layer Wednesday Challenge (OLW 8). This weeks challenge is to make a mask and use it to create a background.
When I saw this challenge, two ideas for a mask had popped into my head immediately. One was a lace paper and another was Kirigami. Do you know Kirigami? Kirigami is a variation of origami. You can get more info about it HERE, if you are interested in.

こちらが、今日使ったマスクの写真。(カードを作り終えてから撮ったので、汚くてスミマセン ^^;)右側が、私が作った切り紙です。

Here is a picture of masks I used today. (Sorry, they are dirty... because I took this photo after I finished my cards.) Right one is Kirigami which was made by me.

一つ目のカードでは、Label 8のダイと切り紙をマスクとして使いました。

On the first card, I used label 8 nestabilities die and kirigami for masking.


On the next card, a lace paper was used for masking.


どちらのカードも出来栄えには満足♪ でも、この写真が気に入らない! 白っぽいカードをきれいに撮るのって難しいですよね?!

I'm very happy with the way these cards turned out! :)  But, I don't like these photos... It is difficult to take a beautiful photo of whitish cards, isn't it??

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Both cards are very lovely. I love doilies on cards - real or masked. Thanks for the link -I'll try it out. I find the best way for me to get a good photo with a white card is to take it outside and not in direct sunlight. I have a question for you - could you please email me at berkerster@gmail.com. Thank you.
