I'm popping in with a birthday card that I've made with a couple of challenges in mind:
- CASology - CAS27 - the cue word is "BLUE"
- CAS-ual Fridays - CFC86 - to make a card with one long side and one short
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Heirloom Patterns; Personal Impressions - Words PICS066
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze
Dies: Spellbinders - Sprightly Sprockets (S5-048)
Accessories: Cuttlebug EF - Diamonds in the Rough; SU Card - Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise; White Lustre card
I used the measurements given on CAS-ual Friday blog and made a card base 6" × 3", then I cut a white panel slightly smaller onto which I stamped the pinstripe pattern and a birthday greeting. Next I embossed the top of the card with this rough diamond pattern. I attached the panel to the card base using dimensional tape. For some added interest I die cut three sprockets and arranged them to one side. Clean, simple - just right a guy! This card will be in the post on Monday - hopefully it will get to the UK on time!!
ETA: Just realised that as it's Martin Luther King Jr Day today there's no post - so this card is going to be late. I've added this to the inside:
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Extra Time, Wonderful Washi
Ink and card as above
Okay, okay - here's a sneak peak at a couple of the ice-sculptures I saw today!! I took these photos just after 8.30am this morning - the sun was just coming up and it really made the ice glow!!
That's all for today - I'll be back tomorrow with my CR84FN card! See you soon.
