Exciting news and a card!

This is one of those weeks when everyones birthday, or so it seems, is falling all within days of each other! One of those people is my dh's grandmother.  I needed a  quick card but also one that is suitable for grandma! : )

I used Regal Rose for the base color and punched the bottom part of the card with my scallop border punch.  I stamped around the card with the same main image stamp in Regal Rose, sponged it with the same color, and sponged on top of that with Close to Cocoa.  The center panel I used Kraft cs sponged with Close to Cocoa and white cs on top.  I tore around the white panel and sponged that with So Saffron and Close to Cocoa.  The image was stamped and I added black stickles for sparkle and black brads on the corners.  I popped up the sentiment and main image and finished it off with a ribbon!

Materials Used: SU! Small Silhouettes, PTI Father knows best, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, White gel pen, Black brads, ribbon, dimensionals

  5. Congratulations on the Design Team assignment. Your card today is a fun use of the "pocket Silhouettes" SU set. Couldn't figure out what gave the background a different look till I blew up the picture and saw all the gel dots on the stems. What a great idea!. Might even try this with craft ink and clear embossing powder for a shiny background. Hmmmm....thanks for sharing the inspiration!


I love hearing from you...Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind comments!
