Today is my day to post on the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog. I have been using and enjoying the Damask Decor cartridge and I used it for today's card. There is a sneak peak at the card above - to see the full card and find out how I made it please click HERE to go to the post on the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog.
Damask always brings to mind formal occasions and elaborate decorations. It also makes me think of flocked wallpaper. I think I have been in many restaurant dining rooms with fuzzy damask designs on the walls.
Back in January I made a card using flocked contact paper - you can read the post HERE. At the time I was using a roll I had purchased long ago and I couldn't find the wrapper to give you more information about the material.
I went back to our local five & ten and I found more of the contact paper - in black and blue - so I bought both! Here is a photo of the label with all of the pertinent information if you are trying to track down this paper for your own projects. I don't have the receipt handy but I think it cost about $7 for the roll and the roll is quite large - enough for plenty of projects.
The card base was cut from this DCWV cardstock. I just love these colors and have them in my dining room (but the paper is not flocked!). I was lucky to find it on sale a while ago - I am not sure if it is still readily available.
The added texture from the flocked contact paper adds a lot to the card and it is so much easier and neater than adding flocking. I used multi-cut 2 with blade depth 5 and pressure at 4 and speed at 3 and the cut was perfectly clean. The adhesive is already on the cut and it is somewhat repositionable so you can get things lined up perfectly even if you have to try more than once.
I like to keep an eye out for different types of material to try cutting with the Cricut. It is fun to add dimension to the card with this simple technique.
Please be sure to pop over to the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog HERE to see the full card and directions - while you are there be sure to check out some of the projects my fellow Design Team members have been making.
