Apple Of My Eye
Today's card was created for the latest Retro Sketches challenge. I have been making quite a few cards lately for the Send A Smile 4 Kids charity. If you're not familiar with them you can check it out here. I started with a white card base and then layered some basic black cardstock from Stampin' UP and some fun patterned paper from Crate Paper's Pretty Party 6x6 paper pad. I cut down a small panel of crumb cake cardstock from Stampin' UP and used a punch from EK Success to create the notebook edge on top. I added a bit of black jute at the top from American Crafts and tied it off into a little bow. I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's My Silly Valentine at the bottom in black ink and then stamped the apple from Paper Smooches Falling For You onto some white cardstock. I Copic colored the image, fussy cut it out, edged it with a black dual tip marker to make it look like a die cut and then popped it up off of the panel using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I added some black dashed lines around the card for some interest and contrast and then popped the focal panel up off of the card using 3M foam tape. I hope you like it!
