Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope that the weather is being kinder to you where ever you are in the world than it is here!
Today I am blogging a card that I made for the children to write in and send to their Uncky Dave. Smiles.
(He’s always been Uncky. Because the children – when small – couldn’t say Uncle, so the Uncky kinda stuck! Grins.)
To start with, it was always going to be a very masculine card. You know, deep reds and blacks and CAS and all that.
But as I started to colour something strange happened.
I picked out bright, fresh, happy colours instead. Oops!
But I will say one thing…
I am so very GLAD that my fingers had a will of their own!!
Love, love, love the brightness of how this one turned out.
I seem to have a thing for pinks, greens & yellows right now.
But hey – the weather is awful and we all need a little brightness in our days don’t we?
I’m sure Uncky Dave will love his bright (not too masculine) card too! Tee hee.
I 3D’d them with Collal Glue to really make them POP over that frame. Smiles.
To bring Call Me Sugar to life, I used my Copics and my Copic Spica Glitter pens in these shades:-
Clothes and extras on the telephone.
Main body of telephone. (The Spicas are Buttermilk & Gold.)
Sorry I went dark with this image – but getting the magnificent sparkle to show is never simple is it?
And if you know me at all, you’ll know that the sparkle is the most important ingredient! Oh yes!
To create my card, I cut my Centura Pearlescent to measure a six inch square.
Then I embossed a nice square frame a half inch around on the front.
Then I embossed a much thinner margin using the opposite side of my Hougie board.
Next I took my (very sharp) Swan Morten craft knife and cut the inner embossed square.
The Neenah card the image is printed on is stuck to the inside of the frame, and the whole card is finished with some lovely, luxurious parchment on the inside.
But what steals the show for me, are those fabulous Scrabble Letters that I arranged and cut out to spell “We Miss You!”.
The challenges I would really like to enter into with my creation are:-
Thank you so very much for stopping by today!
Hugs n Happy Crafting Everyone!
