Here's the final result. To get a feel for the size (or lack of size) the dimensions of the card are as follows: The height, all the way to the top of the banner flags on either side is 7". The width, as opened in the photo, is 9-1/2". When folded up, it is 4" across. Each of the banner letters saying Farmer's Market are close to 1" tall. So, it's pretty tiny, even though the photo would have you believe otherwise. I'll go through some of the steps and show some close-ups below.
Jessica Sprague. What I like about the digital forms of paper is that you can size the pattern to fit what you're using it for. This card is fairly small, so I was able to decrease the size of the pattern in order to see more of the smaller objects. Also, I like to be able to print out only the amount of patterned paper that I will be using, so as not to use excessive amounts of ink. Here's a screen shot of two of the pages I printed for this project (please note I did not use one of the papers on here as it was from a different pack).
ECAL software (software that runs the Sizzix Eclips Cutting Machine).
Then, it was time to start assembling the card. I used my Xyron sticker machines to put adhesive behind all of the background pieces and place them on the card. I love the Xyron because you get this thin covering of adhesive that does not glop or run like liquid glue, and it is a permanent adhesive and very strong. You just have to be sure to get it on straight the first time, because IT IS PERMANENT!
I began making all of the veggies and fruits. I used elements from the following SVG Cuts collections: September Afternoon SVG Collection (baskets), Veggie Garden Pt. 1 SVG Collection (all veggies), April Avenue SVG Collection (bird), Summer Street Carnival (card base), My Happy Garden Hideaway (grass, spade, ladybug, signs), and 24 Valentines SVG Kit (strawberry). Love my SVG Cuts files. They are the best, cleanest, most amazing svg files you'll find.
Here's a close-up the banner portion of the card. I used Sew Easy Fancy Floss (yellow and white) from We R Memory Keepers for the hanging flags.
