I love to create cards and it seems people enjoy receiving them. You'll often find me amidst a stack of paper, glitter, stamps and inks playing with my supplies. If you would like to make an order, email me at cardsbycara AT hotmail DOT com
Anyway, back to this week's MIM ... I decided to make a baby card that I needed to do for a colleague. Here's what I came up with:
I started with a white card base and cut a Sweet Blush cover plate with the Hexagon Cover Plate. I layered a light grey (Staples) card front with some Mini Blooms stamped in Fresh ink (red currant, fuschia, tuscan olive).
I decided the circle needed a frame so I added a Recollections silver shimmer frame and then a Raspberry Fizz 'baby' die cut from PTI's word dies. I cut some thin slivers of foam tape and coloured it with a reddish pink Distress marker to blend it in a bit more. I decided to add some Wink of Stella clear glitter - very subtle but love the way it looks!
Here's a better shot of the shimmery die cut - have you tried these pens? They rock!! I bought silver and gold too but I use the clear the most.
Are you playing along this week? Any creations so far?
