Paper Craft Crew 62

Posted on

So yesterday I made my first foray into the gym… ever. A few weeks ago I decided that it was time to get into shape. Plus, it’s healthy to go to the gym, right? I managed to talk to my friend Andrew into going with me so we can motivate one another; I’ll keep you posted as to how it goes. The weather today was nice, sunny and a little cooler, but nice nonetheless. I have to go into Manhattan on Thursday for work, and it’s supposed to rain, that should prove to be tons of fun. I love the city, but not so much when it rains.

Today I have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. This week we have a nice simple sketch…

PCCCS062 10-09-2013

The base of today’s card is Basic Black Card Stock. I used a stamp from the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set to heat emboss the thanks in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder directly on the card base. The flower images are from the Morning Meadow Host(ess) Stamp Set. They’re both stamped in Black Staz-On ink. The bunch of flowers is cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits and backed with a piece of the Gold Foil Sheet, also cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits. The large flower is punched out with the Pansy Punch and a piece of Gold Foil is punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and adhered in the center. Four Basic Jewels Pearls are adhered on top of that. Along the top of the oval are three matte black sequins with three Basic Jewels Pearls in the center of them. I love the simple elegance of the card and the wow that the Gold Foil Sheet gives it. I hope you enjoyed my simple, elegant card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge. Don’t forget to visit the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with for this sketch. Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful Wednesday.

    • Thank you very much Grace! Ha ha ha ha! That’s so funny that you say that about the gym! I had never been before… ever! But I still used to say something similar! 🙂

  9. I can’t stop laughing after reading Grace’s post….. LOL In my case it is MORE than 5 years in a row, but I used to make it every morning, then I started working again, and it was once a week… you get the picture (which there will NOT be a photo of either)

    But your card Justin!! Oh my! Elegant, Classy, Classic, Black Tie event…. simply gorgeous!

    Have fun at the gym, don’t give up…. funny my son has too started to go a month or so ago, just around his BD… humm…. like I said, I think he was born just the day before you… LOL

    • Ha ha! Yes, Louise she is quite funny! I am going to give it a try and see how it goes. So glad you like the card! I’m loving the gold foil!! LOL! I guess it’s what us boys do when we get to a certain age! 🙂

  10. Nicely done. Good luck at the gym.

  11. Love it! Less is more sometimes. I always want to load up my card fronts…

  12. Love this card – so very original! I would never have paired these colours in this way, but they look great.
