Howdy Y'all!!! I know I said a month ago that I'd update with some crafts, but holy moly I've been SOOOOOOOOO busy and overwhelmed! So, FINALLY, here is a card from this slow poke. lol
Also, the last 3 days I've actually been sitting down and working on some crafts!!!
And, here is a "small" update of a card I recently made. Had a lot of fun coming up with this one, I actually did NOT use a sketch. :) I don't know the names of all the companies for some of the supplies I used, since I just relocated across the U.S. all of my craft stuff is in storage back East.
I'm slowwwwly working on rebuilding my stash with new supplies, and all of the stuff I used to make this card, were in a small box of mish-mash supplies that my friend Laura M. sent me from Massachusetts. :) she's a good swap buddy and always sends me some of the cutest card making stuff! Thanks Laura!
Anyhow, here ya go. It's a thinking of you card.
I made the card a little wonky, rather than all straight. I thought it gave it some nice contrast considering I used square cardstock on the top two layers, against a rounded mat in the back and the rounded corners of the senti tag (which was cut with the SU! Decorative Label Punch)
for the top mat, I ran the swiss dots EF through the big shot and then used SU! Bashful Blue to brayer over the raised dots.
Here's the card on it's back. I know the CS looks "warped" but it isn't. I didn't glue the edges of the CS down, so that it gave the card some extra dimension. I used foamies to pop up the senti and the border strip.
Here is a close up of the senti and the flower. I used a plain flat brad to hold the flower together and then I used glossy accents to glue a gem onto it.
I'm not really sure what these small circles are that I used. I know they are stickers, they came in a pack of 8... I'm going to go out on a limb and say they are "epoxy stickers" but I'm not sure because there was no packaging to them. I just thought they went well with the card here instead of putting more gems. sometimes, too much bling is a bad, bad thing. LOL (I know, most paper crafters wouldn't agree with me on that, but ya know, we all have our own styles).
I've been crafting for the last 3 days, so I'll have lots more cards, and I'll work on updating my blog over the next few days.
I hope that you've enjoyed looking. :)
Keep on Craftin'
