Make The Cards Challenge #39: Sketch
Hi hi! I’m guesting today for the Make the Cards Challenge #39! If you’re unfamiliar with it, the challenge goes live each Wednesday with a fresh and new theme. This week, we have a sketch as the jumping-off point!
And this is what I came up with.
I was cleaning my desk off to make this card when I came across the silver foil paper. It’s from CutCardStock. Usually, I cut down any whole sheets of paper I have in the A2 panels. Then, they’re ready to go when I need to pick colors for my projects. Of course, my favorite embossing folder (Botanical from Tim Holtz/Sizzix) was still on the desk, too, from this post. I thought the silver paper would look fabulous as an embossed background.
For a frame element, I chose a scalloped rectangle frame die from My Favorite Things and adhered it in place with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. I wasn’t sure if it would stick to the silver paper because of the finish, but that glue never ceases to amaze me. Still my favorite liquid adhesive!
The sentiment comes from a set called “Because You” from My Favorite Things. I think it may be retired now, but I kept it since collecting sentiments is a prob.. ahem, it’s a hobby I have. 🙂
You can always use a favorite sentiment set from your stash; a lot will go with this design.
After stamping the sentiment and embossing it in Classic Silver, I added the die-cut word to the black cardstock just above the stamped part. Then, I fussy cut the whole thing. Then it would stand out against the background. Because let’s face it, that’s a LOUD design when it’s embossed in metallic! I attached it with some foam squares.
To finish up, I added the panel to a 110lb Neenah Classic Crest card base, and it’s complete!
