Hi everyone! It's Wednesday, and time for a new Card Concept challenge! Isn't this a beauty? What a cozy winter scene!
I needed a pick-me-up card for a friend who recently had foot surgery. Although the grays and neutrals in this photo aren't what I would normally call "cheerful", I think the end result is one that will cheer her up anyway:
I began by embossing a card front of Basic Gray cardstock with the Cable Knit embossing folder. I stamped the focal sentiment in Basic Gray as well on Whisper White cardstock and colored in the letters with a Smoky Slate marker. I mounted it against a Smoky Slate frame I diecut with a Stitched Shape die, then added a few embellishments: a couple of sparkly hearts, a snowflake, some silver sequins and silver baker's twine:
But my favorite part was the little cup! I stamped it in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate, shaded it a wee bit with a Blend, then heat-embossed the steam with some white embossing powder on a little piece of vellum and fussy-cut it out! Sweet!
And on the inside, a couple of encouraging sentiments!
I would say that my card style this week is Clean and Layered! I hope you will play along with us and share your creation at The Card Concept! Can't wait to see you there! And be sure to stop by to see what the other designers created as well! Thanks for popping in today!
