Have you been engrossed in the Olympics this weekend? I have been watching a smattering of different sports: cycling; soccer/football; swimming; basketball; beach volleyball; table tennis; gymnastics; rowing; and equestrian events to name a few. I am actually watching more variety than usual as I tend to be most consistent in watching swimming, diving, gymnastics and track and field. What have you been watching? Anything surprising?
Last night I needed to create a couple of cards for my twin cousins that are turning 5 this year! It is unbelievable that they are already starting school this year.
There is a little bit of stamping on these cards using the cool number label from the now gone (but not forgotten) The Girls Paperie stamp set from the On Holiday collection. I stamped the label twice with Versamark and embossed it in white. I colored in the 5 using an orange Copic marker. Then I sprayed the labels with 3 different blues: Studio Calico's Mister Huey's in dewey and bonny blue and Dylusions Spray in London blue. I wiped away the excess spray from the white sections of the label. I never tire of how magical emboss resist is. I adhered the cars to their respective labels using dimensional adhesive.
The rest of the card is extremely simple with panels of Toy Box collection patterned paper, a little washi tape that is reminiscent of school and rounding the bottom corners. I finished it up by edging the card with black soot Distress Ink.
Here are the cards once more before they are shipped out to the twins:
