For the next two weeks our challenge over at Retro Rubber is fun sketch. I wanted to create a bright summery card to send to a friend and this is what I created!
My card stock scraps provided all the colors to match the bright ribbon. I wanted the smiley face to be the classic yellow color, so I incorporated that into the sketch. I once had a very favorite dress I wore in 7th and 8th grade; it was peasant style made from large smiley face fabric. Just remembering that wonderful dress from the 70’s makes me smile! I think my brother wore it for a Halloween costume when he dressed up as a girl!
The sentiment and smiley face are from the Technique Tuesday’s Sending Smiles set. The complementing circles are Fiskar’s Layer Aways Dots and Layer Away Variety. I used a Spellbinder’s Standards Circles Large to die cut the smiley face. All Night Meida’s 5/8” punch and Marvy’s ¾” punch provided the embellishment circles. I used Tsukineko Memento Luxe Love Letter was used to stamp and ink edges on all but the smiley face, which is done in Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After adhering the top layers together, I used Thermo-web Zips to adhere the ribbon. The layered circles are adhered directly to the base, with the next layer adhered with dimensional foam adhesive. The smiley face is also on a dimensional foam dots.
This sketch is a great jumping off point for a fun card. Come play along with RetroRubber Blog Challenge and share your creation by July 17th.
