Cardabilities Design Team Reveal #34: Patriotic Card

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Welcome to Cardabilities Design Team Reveal #34! This is my last post as a design team member, and I want to thank Karan and the rest of the design team for this fun experience! :)

This week's sponsor is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. They will award either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack of the winner's choice to the winner of this challenge. So what are you waiting for?! Get in that craft room and create something with this awesome sketch!

I decided to rotate the sketch and use a patriotic theme. I can't believe July is almost here...but that means it's time for BBQ's, time spent with family and friends, and a long weekend just around the corner!

I used a the Primitive Birdhouse digital stamp by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More, and colored in parts of the image with a blender pen and ink. The banner on the side is made using PTI's Banner Builder dies and stamp set.

I am very excited to tell you that I am only 4 POSTS away from publishing my 100th post! I will have a very special BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY to celebrate this occasion! I can't tell you when it will be posted, but it's likely going to be in the month of July (my favorite month). So make sure to visit me often so you don't miss it!!! Happy 4th of July weekend to you all!!!

INSIDE SENTIMENT - You're special
INSIDE SENTIMENT - Thinking of you
It's a funny thing that I'm the next stop after Amber on the hop because I was inspired by her project HERE for my blog hop project (Thanks, Amber!). I loved the idea of the square card set, so that's what I did here. Each card measures 4.25" x 4.25". I chose a CAS look, and made the main focus the frame and heart inside it. I absolutely LoVe this set! They are sooooo simple to make, you can choose any color, use just about any diecut shape, and use any small stamp for the inside. The heart is perfect for it though, right?!
So, I diecut the Nesties label on the card front to create a window. I used two Nesties together to diecut the frame shape, then stamped it with the Polka Dot Background, and adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals. The heart on the inside is also popped up. When you open the card, the sentiment is revealed! I also scored a frame border on the card front.
I hope I have inspired you on the hop today! Enjoy the rest of the stampy creations ;-)
Your next stop is Debbie Marcinkiewicz
