Time is fleeting and crafting time is even scarcer! I had a need for a Thank You card and made time last night to create this springy version.
The Techno Stamper Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 363, the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 310, and Artistic Inspirations Challenge 131 Anything Goes with a Twist of Swirls inspired me.
The add the swirls to the back ground I choose two papers from my scrap stash in “graphite” and “sky” and pressure embossed them with Cuttlebug’s D’Vine Swirl. The graphite is 4” x 5 ¼” and was embossed first. The sky is 2 2/4” x 5 ¼”, and was placed over the graphite while it was still in the die, and then held in place with removable painter’s tape. The graphite was removed and the sky was embossed and distressed with a sanding block to reveal the white core of the paper.
The edges of the standard A-2 card base (4 ¼” x 5 ½”) were inked with an ink blusher and Tsukineko Versa Magic Key Lime to match the sentiment panel. The layers are adhered together and the sentiment is adhered with dimensional foam adhesive.
As mentioned above, this card was inspired by and is entered into the following challenges:
Even though crafting time is hard to come by this spring it is always good to spend a few minutes in my craft cave getting crafty!
