Today I have sat myself down & created a coupl eof cards for different things….. I will post them over the next couple of days, so be sure to return to check them out.
This card was for the sketch over on Mary-Jo’s blog. In fact a really easy sketch, but I will admit I did have a hard time with the 3 little boxes on the top of the sketch, so in the end I switched them to suit my card. I hope she doesn’t mind, but one good thing about sketches is you can play with them to suit yourself, while at the same time not go too far outside the square, so to speak.
This was not the stamp set I had intended on using, but am happy with the result. I will put a senitment on when I go to use the card.
Base Card – Lucky Limeade – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 10.5cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Calyspo Coral – 5 1/4″ x 3 5/8″ or 13.35cm x 9cm
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 1/8″ x 3 1/2″ or 13cm x 8.5cm
|Inside Card & Envelope…|
This piece was layerd onto Calyspo Coral & a Ribbon tied across the centre, tucked the ends under, adhered to the 2nd piece of Whisper White & then finally to the Base Card – Lucky Limeade. I tied a bow which was adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots.
|Close Up of Embossed Leaves & Background…|
For my 3 leaves up the top of the card, I stamped Versamark onto Calypso Coral & Lucky Limeade Cardstock, Heat Embossed using Clear Embossing Powder, cut around images & adhered to the card using Snail Adhesive & Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Gosh, when I read the above, this card should of took me all of about 5 minutes, but in fact it took me about 2 hours, as I kept chopping & changing my mind.
Now for that something different – THE MESS……………………….. I don’t know about anyone esle, but for some reason I always find myself with this….. I suppose it would help to put things away after each card, but hey, that is way tooooooooooo easy!!!! Mind you, this is only AFTER 2 cards!!!!
