Eagle Scout Card
I traced, took off High pass filter and got pretty close to what I wanted by maneuvering my threshold. I decided I would cut my eagle in a dark rich brown and lay it on white and so I enlarged a couple of areas and also deleted some small areas that I thought would be problematic.
When I was happy with my eagle I decided to cut the card with the white offset welded to a window on my card front. I just needed to position my eagle at a slight angle with the wing tips overlapping the window opening. I did not center my window opening on this card, but next time will. It was easy to glue my brown intricate cut eagle to the offset area using Zig 2 Way Glue. I lined the inside of the card front flap with DCWV blue textured card stock, leaving a white area to write my congratulatory note. I added a bit of metallic gold with a Sharpie to the front of the card, but would skip this perhaps next time.
If I can teach myself how to do this, you can too! Thanks to tutorials from Kay at Clever Someday, I am tracing designs without much difficulty !
