My friend Debbie had a birthday and I needed a special card for her. Debbie's motto is "If it ain't bright, it ain't right!" I find it is harder to make cards for other stampers. There is more pressure to impress but I put my thinking cap on and this is what I came up with. Enjoy the photo tutorial -
Not so Seriously!
Here are the ingredients for the card. I decided that Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade fit the "bright" bill so these are the colors I used for this card. I also used Very Vanilla and some Old Olive Taffeta ribbon. Markers were Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Sort Suede, Blush Blossom, Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Basic Black. Accessories were the Big Shot Top Note die, Stazon ink, 2 1/2" circle punch, tombow glue, sponges and the cutter kit on page 208. The stamp set is called "Not so Seriously" and is stinkin' cute!
I cut the Lucky Limeade insert at 5" x 3 3/4" and took a sponge and sponged around the outside of the paper. After that was done I took the distressing tool on the cutter kit and distressed all four sides. Then I attached it to the card leaving an even border.
So this is my entry for the Blindingly Bright Contest.! Or for the astronauts cause I'm sure you could see this from space it is so bright!
Well that's it for today, Debbie loved the card and of course the gift which is secondary to the wonderfullness of the card. So I am gone for today, Glaring Hugs!
