Just A Note To Say
Today's card was created for the latest Addicted To CAS card challenge. As many of you know, clean and simple has never been my thing. I struggle with it because I love layers and patterned paper but it's good to break out of our comfort zone, right? To create my card I die cut a piece of patterned paper from the 7gypsies Postale 8x8 paper pad down using a Gina Marie Designs stitched rectangle die. I stamped the musical note elements from the Skipping Stones Design Heartsong I stamp set twice onto the focal panel using Gina K warm cocoa ink. I then stamped the bird, sentiment, and musical notes from the same stamp set onto the panel using Memento tuxedo black ink so I could add some Copic coloring. The leaves at the end of the branch are from the Heartsong II stamp set. The patterned paper was a bit flimsy so I die cut another rectangle panel using 110lb cardstock and backed it against the paper. I went around the edges of the panel with Tim Holtz distress ink in tea dye just to give it a nice vintage look. I popped the panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape and added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for a finishing touch. I hope you like it and thank you for visiting my blog today!
