About Me

I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

CAS-ual Friday and Lawnscaping Card

This card satisfies  both the CAS-ual Friday and the Lawnscaping challenges this week.  I was to do a text based card for CAS-ual Friday, and a Celebration card for the Lawnscaping challenges.  I started with some blue based green cardstock (I think it might be the retired Glorious Green from SU), cut and folded to a standard sized card.  Next, using some Basic Grey Kioshi paper, I cut it to 5 x 3.75 inches, and with Scattered Straw Distress Ink, stamped the Hero Arts Friend Definition on it.  I took some scrap pale yellow patterned paper, and stamped the Dress ( LawnFawn) in Gamma Green Brilliance Ink.  I took a red punch out that I had lying around, and trimmed some more of that yellow patterned paper to fit inside of it.  I stamped Congrats (LawnFawn) in Gamma Green Ink.  I added some red bling   ( Recollections) to the middle of the dress.  I used Sookwang tape and adhered the yellow scrap with the sentiment on it to the red punch out, then adhered the punch out to the patterned paper.  I added some yellow sheer ribbon (Michaels) vertically to the card.  I adhered the patterned paper to the card base.  I used some foam tape to attach the dress to the card.

This card could be used as either a new job, graduation, or engagement card.
