I hope you're all having a happy Friday in your neck of the woods! I had a chance to get into the craft room and make a card yesterday, when three of my four appointments for the day cancelled, leaving me not having to go to work until 4!
Although this card looks A2, it's actually a couple of inches smaller. It's a card base I got from the Target dollar spot a long time ago. I'm trying to work on using up my stash a little. :) I stamped the background myself, using Distress Inks on a craft mat that I sprayed with water and a Heidi Swapp arrow stamp. Next, I stamped the image of the girl holding gifts onto another piece of white cardstock and colored it with my Bic pens. The image and sentiment that I stamped are both from a Pink by Design stamp set called Black Friday.
See that cute little purple enamel dot up in the corner? It's a homemade enamel dot that I bought from a shop on Etsy. For only $1.20, you can order a pack of 50 of any color. I got blues, greens, and pinks, and the owner of the shop threw in a small sample of other colors for me to try- thus the cute purple! I'd really been wanting to try homemade enamel dots, but with a *very* sensitive smoke detector and a dog that goes bonkers when the smoke detector goes off, this was a wonderful alternative.
I'll be entering this card into the following challenge:
