Good Monday morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I had a wonderful weekend. I had a few ladies over for an all day crop here at my house. We played games, ate wonderful food and treats, talked and just lots of fun making paper crafts all day! I was sad when it was time for them to leave. Today we are sharing a new card sketch for April. I can't wait to see what you do with it!
I had bought the core'dination pack in the newest set of in colors. Of course I hadn't tried it out yet, but once that sanding block hit that paper for the first time, I was hooked. I had so much fun sanding and see the results right in front of me! I first embossed my three strips with the alphabet press folder, then I used the sanding block to sand off a little on top the letters til I started to see the white come thru. The other detail I like about this card, is the banner I have going across the front. I used the artisan punch, folded them in half over gold bakers twine and attached with foam dots. I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the label of love set and placed it in the center.
The inside is simple with another short banner created using only two punches.
