It seems like forever since I made a card. It took me two days to finish this one but it felt good to be creating something again.
This card is for my youngest son who will turn 28 near the end of the month. I really wanted to try this technique that I learned at Jennifer McGuire's blog. She called it Coordinating Die Masking. Check out this technique is was so fun to do and created two cards for the price of one. (Matching card coming soon, I hope!) I used WPlus9's Unforgettable stamp set. I just love these little elephants. I think they are adorable. And since there were three elephants in the set it made the creation of the card a bit faster. I used Momento London Fog and then used a heart from Simon Says Watt's Up stamp set in MFT Cherry Crisp ink to create some background interest. I backed it with red card stock and added the sentiment (from the Unforgettable stamp set) embossed on vellum and fastened to the card by two red heart brads. I think it turned out so cool. You really should check out Jennifer's technique.
I am entering these challenges:
- Seize the Birthday: anything goes
- Inspiration Destination: anything goes
- Crafty Sentiments Design: add a sentiment
- Happy Little Stampers CAS: embossing on vellum
That's it for me tonight. I am ready for bed. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
