Charlotte and Chris are at robotics today so I spent the day doing whatever I felt like. Mostly that was laundry and going to the gym but I did get to have a really nice late lunch with a friend. I had one of the most DELICIOUS margarita's I have ever had today. It was made from grapefruit juice rather then sour mix and just so refreshing! I don't seem to get enough socializing in these days and I miss that. I think I need to schedule that in more often.
One thing I did have time to do this morning is make a card for the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge. I read this morning that an online friend was feeling under the weather so I whipped up this card for her.
To be honest, I actually created TWO cards because I am trying to make my life a little easier so I have cards created for my stash instead of whipping them up on demand. Here is sketch #108 that I used as my jumping off point:
To start my card, I stamped the little bird from Lawn Fawn's "Get Well Soon" stamp set and colored it in using Copic markers. I then die cut the bird using the matching die set.
Next, I stamped the sentiment and the hearts on the white rectangle. I wrapped a piece of red DMC floss around the top, mounted it with foam adhesive onto a red scallop die cut and set it aside.
For the background, I used Washi tape to create the stripes on a white piece of card stock measuring
5 1/2" by 4 1/4." I wanted the stripes to be as straight as can be so I started from top and used a red scrap piece of tape as a marker. On both the cards I made I had white space left at the bottom, which was not what I wanted. However, I left it and if I created this design again, would fix it so that this would not happen.
When I was finished with the tape, I folded the ends over to the back and mounted the rectangle onto a 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" top folding card.
I mounted the small rectangle piece I had created previously onto the front of the card. I then mounted the little bird onto the front with foam adhesive.
My last step was to take a Wink of Stella pen and use it over the black hearts. It is hard to tell in the photo but they do have a bit of shine to them.
My second card I created the same way but changed up the color scheme a bit.
I like how both of them came out and it was not hours to make, as per my usual cards.
I am also entering this into Simon Says "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge."
I thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great night!!
