Depeche Mode – Cards of the Universe

Yesterday I mentioned that now that the holidays are over, I’m going to share my Depeche Mode-related cards and other surprise items over the next few days’ posts.  After that, I’ll go back to featuring birthday, baby shower,
anniversary and other cards I’ve been making. Depeche Mode’s current album is titled Songs of the Universe, or as we fans like to say: SOTU (we turn all their songs, albums and concert tours into acronyms) and this card stemmed from the SOTU album cover. This was the only card I made like this – I wanted to make a unique SOTU card out of the larger paper pieces, using just a portion of the design. Click any image for a larger picture.

Then I spent way too much time cutting tiny little pieces of paper into tinier pieces for these cards.  I made ten in all and mailed one off before I got a picture of it with the whole group.  These cards were made for some of
my Depeche Mode fan friends:

Here’s the gang of most of the cards I made – oh, and I cut out the round circle-ish shape with my Cricut Expression machine. I think it was a letter “O” in an alphabet cartridge.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
