Always

Remember this card? I figured I could make good use of the leftover circle from that card. For the sentiment, for the first time I cut out my sentiment stamp!!! Surprised smile I always saw jennifer mcquire do it but was always scared. However for this card I took a bold step and glad that I did!

Cut out always using Zing and then covered it with glossy accents. Colored clear rhinestones using sharpies to make them match the glitter colors.

I was looking for a wreath SVG file when I found this. I used the base wreath from there, designed my own door, leaves and flowers. Dotted the center of the flowers with liquuid pearl. It was quite a pain to adhere all the tiny leaves; but it made me happy! Printed the sentiment on vellum.

Things that matter most…

The design of this card took a different turn midway. My original idea was to mask an oval and have the flowers and the sentiment in the same layer. With the masking done, I thought it would be nice to emboss the oval using the nestabilities. That my friends was not a good decision. While embossing the oval die was not perfectly centered over the masked oval. So I decided to just cut out the oval. Still happy with the results!

Colored the flowers using spectrum noir markers and white embossed the sentiment.

This was quite a simple and fun card to make! For the chalboard effect, I stamped the sentiments in white pigment ink and then went over them with a white pencil. To highlight one sentiment of all, I embossed it in white embossing powder. Then doodled some stas with white pencil.
