I realised this morning that it's my brother-in-law's birthday tomorrow and I hadn't made a card for him. So, this is it and it's going to be late! I've used two challenges in the making of the card and CASEd one of Ardyth's fabulous cards. The challenges are:
- Less is More - LIM65 - a super sketch challenge
- Charisma Cardz Challenge - CCC16 - Black, blue and white
Sadly, I missed the deadline for the Charisma challenge, but the colours are perfect for a masculine card, so I stuck with them. I used my new Paper Smooches background stamp to make the focal image, but only stamped a small section. I stamped directly onto some vellum and heat embossed the image with clear powder, then coloured the squares on the reverse. I layered the vellum square onto die cut white and black card. I finished off with a simple sentiment. Hopefully, Tim should get this card next week.
Stamps: Paper Smooches - Hip to be Square; Uniko Studio - Extra Time
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders: Standard Squares Sm (S4-128) #5, Standard Square Lg (S4-126) #5
Promarkers: Royal Blue, Cobalt Blue
Accessories: Clear embossing powder; Card from stash;
Here's the LIM sketch and Ardyth's card - I do like the jewel look to Ardyth's card!
This is such a pretty card - check out Ardyth's blog - she makes fab cards!
Before I do, I've been promising photos of the house - well it's not quite ready yet, but I thought I'd share a few photos of the my craft room - it's still something of a work in progress ;)
That's all for now. I really must get back to the unpacking. We are having an Open House party tomorrow - and I need to make sure that the boxes in the family room and dining room are unpacked (or at least hidden!). I'll be back on Sunday with my card for this week's CR84FN53 challenge - see you then!
