Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Saturday was nice and sunny, I was able to get about 2 1/2 hours in the pool! Today is overcast and we have had a few rain showers, guess that’s what we are in for today. That’s actually ok, I can work on some card designs, Monday my first order from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog arrives and I can hardly wait – its like Christmas in June!
Here is my card for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #96. Click on the design for a link back to the PPC blog. This was a fun one to think about – for the greeting from the ‘A Dozen Thoughts’ stamp set, I actually reversed the word bubble (from the Word Bubble Framelits Collection). I die cut the bubble using my magnetic platform and Big Shot, turned it over and heat embossed the ‘Wish Big’ in black.
Let me tell you about the card. The card base is Whisper White and top folding. I used a mat of Basic Gray layered with a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. There are 2 tags, a Lost Lagoon and Whisper White punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, matted and backed by dimensionals. On the Whisper White I used the ‘The Open Sea’ stamp set. The fish is backed by dimensionals for added depth. Ink colors used are, Smokey Slate, Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey. Circle accents are either 1/4″ or 1/2″.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card. Remember to head on over to the Paper Craft Crew blog and check out the other cards from the design team and other crafters like me, Craft On!
