So, it was absolutely gorgeous here yesterday. I may go as far as to say that it was perfect! Temps in the mid 70’s and lots of sun! It did make staying in the office a little more difficult but I took my lunch break and sat outside and FaceTimed with Mr. Trent for a bit. Marissa brought in some chocolate chip mini muffins that had a hint of coconut extract in them, delicious! Michael made a good point, they are mini muffins but then you just eat more of them! It’s true because I had three! The ride home in the car was topless and glorious! I had some dinner and then came home and tried to be crafty but I kept having to go outside. I did finally get my card made for today and I’m really excited to share my Mother’s Day present with you which I will do on Saturday! I love the way that it turned out!
The card that I made in between trips outside is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
Ok, so I really am a little obsessed with wedding cards lately, but I think that it’s because I love the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper. I have always loved Sahara Sand so the paper is perfect! The card base is the usual! I stamped the Something Lacy Background Stamp in Sahara Sand on Whisper White and then cut a piece of Sahara Sand with the bottom right angled to match the sketch and adhered on top of the white. The panel is then mounted to the base with Fun Foam adhered in between. My panel in the middle is a piece of paper from Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper and it’s backed with a piece of Whisper White. The greeting and the wreath are from the aforementioned Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set, the wreath is heat embossed on Vellum with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder and the sentiment in the same on Whisper White and then punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. I used some Foam Tape in between each one to adhere them to the card. The flags at the top are the same Something Lacy Background heat embossed with some more Liquid Platinum on Vellum and adhered with Vellum Adhesive. Finally, for a little sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins. I love the Platinum Embossing with the Sahara Sand, it gives the card a fun monochromatic look! I really hope that you enjoyed today’s card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge! As always, I appreciate your visit and I wish a very happy Tuesday! 🙂
