Hey everyone! It’s Miss You Monday time! And great news, I had a message from Sarah this week, and the end is in sight so we are all very excited that baby will be here soon ( she is due early September). Although Sarah is still very ill, her spirits seem to have picked up a little, which is great! Yeay!
I had lots of fun with this card – can’t you tell?
This quirky little card takes a little bit of mathematics to start with, but once the measurements bit has been done, and the creases are in place, its simply a case of decorating the panels. Apparently, this is called a Side Step card (I don’t know who comes up with these names!?)
I always loved this scooter stamp, but hadn’t gotten round to using it on a card yet. so I thought i’d give it a whirl. One thing I particularly love is that the pieces are really easy to cut out, so as I stamped the image on different paper, it was really easy peasy to cut out the different panels and re-assemble. I am loving the finished design.
The papers are from the ‘Quite Contrary’ line from My Minds Eye’. A 6×6 stack came free with a card making magazine, and knowing the fantastic quality of MME products and the fact that i’ve always been drawn to their designs, it was a no-brainer when I saw the magazine. I can’t wait to use some more of the pages to make a little mini book or two.
Lets talk chipboard! I’ve used two chipboard pieces, (from The Paper Mill shop I believe) one of which i have covered with pink pearlescent embossing powder, and the other I sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer spray. This gives one a pearl glassy sheen, and the other a flatter, pearlescent look. The brad in the middle is a fabric brad from Trimcraft, I believe its the Laura Ashley range.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great Monday!
