A Cut Above - Day 2 and RIC #10 YAY!

Congrats to the DT at RIC... up to the tenth model and no mishaps on the runway! Here is a picture of the tenth model and my card for the  Runway Inspired Challenge follows. 

Belive it or not, the orange-tinted vellum in the circle is also being used as one of the chevrons at the bottom of the card. Put a little bit of white behind that vellum at the bottom and it gets a whole new look. Kind of a bummer because in person this is more of a peek-a-boo card. The vellum is pretty sheer. In this picture it almost looks yellow. The card stock around the edge of the card is a deep gold - you'd never know it!  I took alot of pictures in different settings - no dice. I love the cream paper. It is called Raw Silk from The Paper Company. It has a great texture, almost like cloth, as does one of the silver chevrons. 

 I took the piece of vellum and used Versa Mark for my sentiment. I embossed it with black Ranger embossing powder... love that! I used my black Copic marker and went around the edge of my window cut out. I like how it finished the look of the window.  I then took my square piece of vellum and attached it to the back of my window.  

I also am taking the Online Card making Class - A Cut Above. This card was inspired by Day 2: Window Cards. 

PS: I am going to take some pictures of this card today, saturday, and see if I have better luck.


  1. Great card for the challenge! Is the sentiment on a die cut in front or behind the paper? Love your orange and gray zig-zags!

    1. I should have explained that to my followers, Ginny. (haha) I adjusted the entry after we spoke. Thanks!

  2. Wow, you're right! The vellum looks totally different in each part of the card. I love the zig zag border across the bottom. Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
