I am back with a couple of cards I created using the card sketches over on Nichole Heady's blog for Papertrey Ink. You can find the sketches HERE. I decided to try my hand at Sketch No. 2 and Sketch No. 3.
For Sketch No. 2 I was immediately reminded of the free printable by Heather Nichols that I had not yet had an opportunity to use. I also happened to have a piece of vellum I had cut earlier in the day using the doubled-ended banner die from vellum and from there this card practically made itself! I embossed birthday from Botanical Silhouettes with white embossing powder and then I inked the vellum with spring rain and aqua mist inks to get it the light happy blue that mimicked the blue I was covering up on the printable. I folded the banner for more dimension and that made it easier to attach to the printable without seeing the adhesive. The printable is adhered using dimensional adhesive to a kraft panel that I notched with 3/4" circle punch on each side. I tied some hemp twine around the notches and adhered the kraft panel to a white card base with dimensional adhesive.
And there you have it. I hope you had a delightful weekend and that your Monday is a brilliant beginning to your week.
Thank you so much for visiting!
