Hello all!!! Guess what time it is?!? It's time for another fabulous card sketch over at Sketch N Scrap!!! Isn't that exciting?!?
"Hello Beautiful" with Heidi Swapp "Mixed Company"
Okay.... Here it is:
And here is a beautiful card I made for a very close friend:
I used the Heidi Swapp "Mixed Company" paper pad because the colors are just soooo pretty!!!! I kept the card pretty simple as I didn't want to cover up too much of that beautiful paper!!!
I started off with my Martha Stewart paper punch to create the die-cut frame of the card. Then, I used my scalloped circles die by Spellbinders and my Grand Calibur to create some die-cuts for the center piece. I also used various circle punches and swiss dots embossing folder for texture. I topped it off with some liquid pearls and a banner stamped with the word "beautiful"in ink by Stampin Up.
I inked the edges of everything with "Spun Sugar" Distress Ink. I also got to use my spiffy Epiphany Crafts tool that my husband got me at Christmas Time. I punched out a canvas piece by The Little Yellow Bicycle and added the epoxy atop of it. Then, I mounted that to a beautiful charm piece that came with the tool. I finished the charm by adding some twine that can be cut to remove it from the card!!!
Here is a close-up of the charm and sentiment:
Well gang.... Thanks sooo much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
