Popping by with a reminder that there is still time to enter this week’s Time Out Challenge. For this challenge we are inspired by the words:
“Give thanks with a grateful heart.”
For my card I wanted to pull on the word ‘grateful’ and obviously go for hearts – any excuse ! I decided to venture into patterned paper territory :O Don’t be shocked! I have so much of it I just need to actually use it! The piece I grabbed is by Lawn Fawn (they actually popped a sheet in free with one of my orders). I trimmed it down to 4″ x 5.25″ and distressed the edges. I adhered it with tape runner to a cream Simon Says Stamp 100lb card base slightly larger than the paper and ruffled the paper edges.
For my focal point I used a card from a Simon Says Stamp card kit and swiped the edges with Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I adhered it at a jaunty angle with foam tape to the card. The sentiment was created using the new Simon Says Stamp Grateful die. It’s a two part die, I trimmed the background from black cardstock and the main sentiment from gold mirror cardstock and adhered them together. I then popped it up on foam tape on the front of the card.
To finish off the card I adhered some gold sequins and seed beads by Lucy’s Little Things, and added some Wink of Stella (clear) and glossy accents to the flowers for a bit of interest.
