Now... on to my cards:
For my first card, I used the lovely new Anchor the Soul set and created this fun fold card. I also used last month's Pennant Dies, and also the ODBD Custom Elegant Oval dies.
I stamped my image with Memento ink and colored with Copics. For a little extra pizazz, I used Wink of Stella glitter pen in silver. LOVE this stuff!!! Anyway... after cutting the image out with a medium size Elegant Oval die, I matted it with a large size of the same set, and I embossed that with a Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder from Cuttlebug.
Here is a close up of the shimmer:
To create my fold, all I did was cut a piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock to 5.5" x 11". I scored it at 2 3/4" and 5.5" That creates the center back fold of the design. The design paper I used is Farmhouse Paper Co. I stamped the sentiment on some dp and cut it with the ODBD Custom Pennant die. I also cut the flag pole from the same set and painted that with the silver Wink of Stella. I added a blue burlap banner and some brads for embellishments.
For the word "hope" at the bottom right corner, I had a brad that said hope but it was shiny brass. I heat embossed it with silver, and then again with medieval metal, which is more of a mixture of pewter and gold tones. I added a white die cut elegant oval cut out for the message inside, and held it directly behind my main image to stick it down so it lines up perfectly with the image. I stamped a couple of the little anchors from the Anchor the Soul set and now it's ready for a personal message when it's sent.
For my second card, I did a real CAS (clean and simple) card. I used the new Walk with Jesus set. I tore three layers of kraft card stock and sponged each layer. I sponged my sky and clouds using a template I got years ago from Rosy's Road Show. I adhered the "sand" to the lower part of the card. I stamped the flip flops with Memento ink and colored with Copics, and die cut them with the ODBD Custom Flip Flop Dies. I added 2 little opalescent pearls and that was it! So quick and easy but I can really see these new flip flop sets being great for teen cards, can't you?
