Freshly Made Sketches 111

Posted on

Guess what… do you know what day it is?! Yes folks, that’s right, it’s Friday!! We all know that I do loves me some Friday! Yesterday as they promised, it was rainy and cold. Today, just cold. Tonight is Chinese food and movie night with Heather and tomorrow, off to Manhattan with Andrew for some more marathon walking! I’ll have to see if I can take some pictures to post. But to hold you over, here’s one of Andrew’s famous sunset pictures…

Now on to today’s post. My inspiration for today’s card is this week’s Freshly Made Sketches

Freshly Made Sketches #111

I looked at the sketch and sat down at my desk and I saw the card before I made it. The whole card! I don’t think that has ever happened before. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The strip across the bottom is Gold Foil Sheet and I used the Chevron Border Punch to punch out some Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive. The main component, the frame, is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock cut out with the Squares Collection Framelits Dies and I used the Christmas Messages Stamp Set to stamp my greeting on Vellum. I heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and adhered it to the back of the frame. The base is a piece of Whisper White backed with a piece of Gold Foil Sheet and some random sequins from a Target find to create the background for the greeting. To finish it off some Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive are punched out with the tree from the Merry Mini’s Punch Pack and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the pop of turquoise with the red and green and the gold foil gives it a little shine. And like I said yesterday, I really like this card! LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Please take a moment to leave a comment to let me know what you think of the card and more importantly, have yourselves an awesome Friday!!

  6. Hi Justin:
    I’m always trying to find ways to use my “mini” stamps. I have quite a few of the SU sets but rarely use them. Why I never thought of making them part of a frame as you have done is beyond me so I thank you. Now those teeny tiny’s may actually get used a bit! Just loved this card and agree with Karen. It does scream happy. Have a fabulous weekend.
