Today’s card is for a sketch challenge over on the stamping 411 blog. One of my bff’s birthday is today. She shared with me that she hated red white and blue as a kid. Where her birthday was on the 4th of july, her parents dressed her in red white and blue all year long! So ~ for Gina’s birthday card, I chose another summer tradition… Strawberries! I ran my second layer through the big shot and sanded the dsp so you can see the dots. I used chalk pastels to color the shimmer white panel and the dots picked up the extra ink nicely. Then I got it messy… Like a juicy strawberry, I used real red ink and applied the ink direct to paper (and ribbon). I got it all over my hands (like making mud pies and had so much fun.
Happy Birthday Gina! Wanna play along with this fun sketch? Check out what the operators are up to over at stamping411. You could end up having YOUR card showcased!
