FMS156 – Bearing Gifts

By | October 5, 2014

Well the weekend is almost over, now we are gearing up for another week.  The weather was chilly here today and we actually saw a few snow flakes last night. Let me make it clear – I am not ready for snow, I would prefer cool morning and 70’s during the day. Did any of you make any cards this weekend in honor of World Card Making Day?  I worked on a few and will share them with you later in the month. Today I watched some football and took a nap (that’s what happens with the smell of a roast in the oven and a cuddly afghan over you. Now on to the card…

Today’s card is using the sketch from “Freshly Made Sketches #156”,  a wonderful design by Narelle using a variety of different shapes.

FMS Final 156-001

For my card, I decided to turn the card horizontal. The card base is Crumb Cake with a mat of Crumb Cake stamped with the Hardwood Background stamp, love this stamp, seem to be using it a lot lately. You can either glue the mat directly to the card base or use dimensionals.  When making cards to mail I have a tendency not to use as many dimensionals then when I know I will be handing someone the card.  Before I mounted the Bearing Gifts stamp, I cut the greeting from the image – this way I can easily use them separately.  The image is stamped with Memento Black on Whisper White and colored with a variety of Blendabilites Markers.  Once I had the coloring done, I went through my “scrap paper” to find pieces to use for the rest of the card.  Greeting is stamped in Memento Black on Cherry Cobbler. For the banner, I punched a strip of Daffodil Delight using t he Confetti Stars Border punch and backed it with a piece of Tempting Turquoise – used liquid glue to adhere them together. The banner is then added to the card with dimensionals. Image is glued on and a Old Olive circle finishes the card.
