TGIW! Thank god we are halfway through the week. I don’t know what is up at work lately but I want to run! LOL! I just think I need a little mental health day, have I mentioned that before?! The weather didn’t help with the mood, it was gloomy and rainy all day. Again, it’ better than snow! Hehehe! I have a something funny to tell you. My friend Kim is going away and I offered to take her to the airport before I asked the time of the flight. The flight is 6:00am Saturday, which means that we have to leave my house at 3:30am. What have we learned? To ask what time the flight is first! LOL! I would have done it anyway, but it’s pretty funny no?!?!
Since today is Wednesday that means it’s Paper Craft Crew day! This week we have a sketch for you…
I do love a square card! I did something that I thought was a little cool with the sentiment on the card too. The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant Card Stock. The background is a piece of Very Vanilla that I stamped with the En Francais Background Stamp in More Mustard. The panel in the middle is stamped with an element from the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set in Elegant Eggplant. I backed it with a piece of Elegant Eggplant and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flower is made by punching two pieces of Elegant Eggplant put with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and using my Paper Snips to cut the petals. I put a Basic Glimmer Brad in the middle and fluffed up the petals. The leaves are punched out from Always Artichoke using the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. A small strip of More Mustard is flagged and adhered to the panel and the flower is adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The greeting is stamped in More Mustard on Vellum Card Stock. I used my Heat Tool to speed the drying and then a strip of More Mustard hides the Stampin’ Dimensional that I adhered it to the card with. I really like the way the greeting stands away from the background but you can still see it. I will definitely do this again, I really like the effect. I hope that you enjoy my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Sketch card for this week’s challenge. Let me know what you think of the greeting and thank you so much for checking in with me. I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
