Hello everyone! I have 2 cards to share with you today. Firstly, I thought it would be fun to create another card for the Cards from the Hearts Card Drive using my new stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn.
I decided to make this card with a chalkboard technique and although it's hard to see, I used the Tim Holtz embossing folder that has the texture of a brick wall on the red card base. I punched the notebook edge and drew lines with a white pencil, then embossed the sentiment in white. I also added glossy accents to the glasses and heart and used an old glitter pen on the book binding just to jazz it up a little.
JJ Bolton created a gorgeous card with Avery Elle’s ‘Embellish It Flower Die’ using vellum and Texture Tiles (Be Cute stamp set), and inspired me so much, that I decided to CASE her card (I sure hope she doesn’t mind)!
I die cut each petal 3 times, then arranged them. If you’re interested, Nina Yang has a video tutorial on You Tube creating a flower with this die Here and on This Blog Post she shows how to make 6 different flowers with this die.
I love pink and gray, so I cut 1/4“ strips in steel gray, used soft stone for the leaves and smokey gray for the sentiment. I wanted the flower to be super feminine, so I used a bright pink ink for the polka dots and finished it off with metallic gray sequins.
I thought this card was perfect to send off in a 'care package' to my step-granddaughter, Erica, who is a freshman in college and the sweetest girl on earth...she made the Dean's List after her first semester, and we're all so proud of her!
Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone is getting in some crafty time this weekend! Take care, and thanks so much for stopping by!
