My first card is inspired by the sketch at CAS colors & sketches #33. To make this card, I hand drew the twine and fuzzy cut the banners from different pattern papers. I stamped the gift boxes using my ANITA's Inque Boutique stamp and colored it with pencil colors. The banners were added with foam adhesives and sentiment was added.
Since, its a birthday card I will also link it up at Moxie Fab World - Birthday Creations Week - The birthday Card Challenge
The Concept of challenges at House of cards is simply awesome, it lets you explore the possibility of different card making styles and I am constantly participating in the se challenges. So they have these colors which are up for entire month and we have to use the same colors every week but with a different card style. This week it's Classic and Elegant and I had to try my hand on it ;) Besides, I was also inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! #36 to make this card.
To make it I die cut the focal piece using scalloped circle die from Nestabilities. It was then inked. The bird, heart and alphabet were stamped and fuzzy cut. Glitter glue was added to each of these. I also hand drew and fuzzy cut a tree branch using a black card stock. All elements were then stuck on the embossed card base.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
