Friday is finally here. Today I'm heading to the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention. It's only 10 minutes away. I'll be sure to let you know on Monday if I found any good deals.
My brother's birthday is coming up soon and I needed to get a card in the mail. I struggled trying to come up with an idea. I was going to use my stamps but couldn't find the set I wanted..I know it is in that cupboard somewhere!
I was very happy with the card once I was finished. The entire card was printed and cut with the Imagine.
It's Your Day - Celebrations
Sun - Designer Calendar
Chair - Life's A Beach
Pattern Paper - Snapshot - Nature
Both the background and paper for the chair were printed with cricut cartridges - Snapshot - Nature.When I look at the sample in the handbook I can't visualize it until I actually try it out.
Couple things I did with the chair to make it stand out more. When this image is cut out there are cut lines for the slats on the chair. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Pumice and I also used a copic marker to draw fine lines. It adds a lot of depth.
The sun has been glittered. The button was a different shade of blue until I colored it with my copic marker to match.
So this card can work for Father's Day or a birthday.
