Hey guys, how are ya? I know, I'm a bit late with the Sketch for You to Try again. I made a card, but it was so not pretty, I tell ya! Ick! So it was back to the drawing board last night, and I finally got one I could show ya. *grin*
I used my new Nature's Silhouettes set from CHF (a birthday present from my girl Julee!), and I only switched the sketch around a little bit! *wink* First I inked up the Boxwood stamp in Versamark, then inked over that with Ruby Red and stamped it twice on Pearlized White cardstock. Then I embossed that with clear detail embossing powder. Once that cooled, I repeated the steps with the Bayleaf stamp using River Rock and Old Olive ink, then clear embossed those. Instant masking! After layering that panel on Chocolate Chip, I popped it up on dimensionals over a Ruby Red layer punched with my new Martha Stewart border punch. I tried to find the name or a link for it, but no luck! I will let you know when I find it, k?
For the card base, I cut a piece of designer paper from the My Mind's Eye Laundry Line collection to 5" square. I matted it with Chocolate Chip and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine. I wrapped 2 strips of 5/8" Chocolate Grosgrain around the base, then popped up my main image panel on dimensionals. To finish off the card, I added 3 buttons tied with embroidery thread.
I hope you're recovering from the holidays. I'm still trying to get my stamp room cleaned up so I can get to work on stuff for the MFT and Verve releases next week. Stay tuned...there's fun stuff coming!
