Happy World Card Making Day + Fun Announcement!

October 2, 2010

Happy Saturday everyone!!  And maybe even more important....happy World Card Making Day to you!!  Hope that your day is filled with whatever makes you happy.  My day is filled with lots of my favorite things...college football, card making, and photography!!  Yay!!

Well, on this lovely day the world celebrates card making....I am having my own little celebration!  This card gives a little hint as to what that might be... (It was also done for the Moxie Fab "Offset Scallop Gallop" challenge, and for Taylored Expression sketch 130.)

"While You Were Out..." supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics & The Paper Company
Paper: My Mind's Eye & Teresa Collins Designs
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Just My Type & Just My Type, Too)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: magenta) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Ribbon: Renassiance by Design
Pins: Jenni Bowlin & craft supply
Flowers: Recollections
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft 
Scallop Die: Papertrey Ink

Instructions:  Adhere a heart paper block to the front of a pink card base.  Stamp the typewrite and sentiment to a white cardstock block, round the corners, and adhere to the front of the card.  Cut scalloped strips from three patterned papers using a Cuttlebug and large scalloped die.  Adhere them to the left side of the card in an offset placement, and then pull up on the scallops to give them a little dimension.  Tie ribbon around the last scallop and accent with paper flowers and pins.  Add pink jewels in place of the keys on the stamped typewriter.  Inside:  Round the corners of a white cardstock block and adhere to the middle.  Stamp the sentiment and hearts to it, and accent with pink pearls. 

Well, if you haven't already guessed it....and if you haven't already read the Lawn Fawn Blog...my fun news is that I am now part of the Lawn Fawn Design Team!!
