Good Afternoon Everyone,
|New Challenge Blog|
Firstly the good news, I was asked by Elaine from Just For Fun Challenge blog if I would like to be part of her new design team for her new challenge blog, and of course I couldn't say no now could I. The first challenge starts on the 1st of August and the prize for this challenge is beautiful, make sure you pop back soon for more details :-)
Now onto the card. I celebrated my 4th year Wedding Anniversary on the 11th July, and the card I have for you is the card I made my hubby. I was trying not to do over cute but also to do romantic, I really struggled with this card this year for some reason.
Anyway I am pleased with the end results. I decided to make the card blank using one of my hubbies fav shapes, he really likes the cards that are made using the Grand Nesties Label 1 so thought I would make his with it. Next I used one of the new embossing folders he bought me from Sue Wilson, and this one was cascading hearts (another of his favorite) I used a Sarah Kay image and coloured it in using promarker and flex markers. The sentiment is from I believe a popcorn bear stamp plate, from Crafters Companion. The die cut around the sentiment is from Spellbinders and again one of my hubbies fav shapes. I finished the card with a piece of white ribbon and bow, three pieces of Card Candi, I went around the image with white liquid pearls and added a "pearl" using the same technique on the embossed background, and finally a heart that was cut from my cricut machine and embossed then using my gilding wax I highlighted the embossing, another of my hubbies fav techniques.
My hubby is very supportive of my crafting and he isn't afraid to give his opinion on something be in positive or negative, so I liked using his fav techniques to make his card. He was over the moon with it.
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
