It’s another cold and icy day here today, and another “snow day”. Ten years of Chicago winters and not one snow day and we’ve had 5 here already…Wow! Welcome to Dallas winters…I know that Noah is super-duper happy! He’s been all smiles today.
I thought I would try and get a quick card made this morning…this is another Splitcoaststampers challenge. This one is all about using a predetermined sketch to design a card. Can you see all these elements in the card I created ? This is a very simple idea that helps you begin your card/scrapbook page or 3D item by giving you a design to follow. You just have to pick out your stamps and paper and ink. Easy right? The next time you create a card, give this a try.
Some details I’d like to share with you.
*My card base is an unconventional size. It is 4-1/4” x 5”. Did I do that on purpose? Yes. I chose to have some of my card elements come off the card rather than be directly on the card base making the finished card size 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”. Also, It is nice when you have a strip of paper sitting in your scrap draw that isn’t quite the perfect size for your card. Right?
*Also the #3 strip uses (3) Two Tags Bigz Die with the sides cut off to narrow it up a bit.
*Finally, I dipped the antennae in the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint for just a touch of sparkle. This absolutely doesn’t show in the photos.
