Frosted Designs Tuesday Card Sketch #11


The fabulously talented Jenny Evans designed another super card sketch for the Tuesday Card Challenge at Frosted Designs.  You have almost two weeks to link up your take on her sketch!
Jenny Evans' Card Sketch
As you can see, I turned the card so that it would open at the top.  This necessitated turning parts of the sketch a bit. The Cranberry colored cardstock is mounted on a black card base.  This allows the negative space of some of the die-cuts to act as debossed areas. The edges of the card front are distressed to bring out the white core of the cardstock.

Silhouette Cameo Used For All Die Cut Shapes
All papers, ink, stamps are from CTMH.  The Silhouette shapes were purchased from the Silhouette store.  They have an amazing selection of designs!  I colored the hat pin with alcohol ink and added beads purchased from Michael's.

2nd Generation Stamping on Inside Card Panel
It is sometimes nice to have a design on the inside of cards, so I stamped a couple of images from the Love Life set.  Also from the set, the "Love" sentiment on the front of the card was stamped using a mask.  The sentiment actually reads: "Live. Laugh. Love." I didn't want the punctuation to show, so I masked before and after the word.


Have a Happy Day!
