After my first card this weekend, I went back to work in The Captain's Quarters, hoping to make at least one or two more cards from my neglected sketch collection, when I spied this sketch from Artful Delight:
Warning: The folks at OWH are way ahead of the rest of the world. Kindof like when you make cards to submit for publication and they are 5 holidays ahead of real-time? Yeah, like that. So OWH is collecting Valentine's Day cards now. I chose Sugar Rush because it's pink and cute and lovey-dovey, which is probably why I so rarely use it. I might have touched it LAST Valentine's Day.
So here's one of my cards:
First I rounded the corners and attached the bottom piece to the card base. I lined up my T-square with the left edge of the paper and butted the top piece up against it so they are all actually straight! Well, okay, one or two missed the to right edge a little, but they are all even with the bottom pieces. :)
Here's another one:
After I got all the papers attached to their bases, I went back and stamped the sentiment on all the cards. I used Archival Jet Black ink for great, crisp impressions.
Here's two more:
After I stamped all the sentiments, I used my Martha Stewart Confetti Heart punch to punch hearts from some of the cut-off pieces. You can see each one of these got coordinating hearts - one large and two small.
Here's two more:
There was one near-fatality. See how this one is a little different:
So that's 16 more cards for OWH. Whoot!
Thanks for stopping by!
