Freshly Made Sketches 228

Hi there! I hope that you had a nice week and are ready for the weekend! My day yesterday was great! I went over to Heather’s for lunch, we had Subway. After that I stopped by to see Daniel for a bit, he was being shy again! LOL! My friend Sue stopped by my house for a bit and we got all caught up, she also picked up some things that I had for her and Michael. Around 4:00 I made my way over to Scrap-A-Latte for class. One of the students came early and worked on her cards while I finished cutting. Renee and I had Wendy’s for dinner, you just can’t beat 4 for $4! It’s a very budget friendly meal! Brian was nice enough to bring me a Starbucks Flat White, he’s such a good guy! Class was loads of fun, we had some new students and some regulars! We lost the sock die from thy Loads of Fun Set for a little while but it was found stuck to some Washi Tape! By the time we all got finished it was 11:00 and time to head home. Today Jen Starr is teaching a class at the store so I’m going to go over and take a peek!

The card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 228

I went super clean and simple! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. The panel is the same and I partially die cut the thoughtful with the Concord & 9th Being Class Dies to leave it hanging off the right side. My greeting is then stamped in Onyx Black from the Coordinating Concord & 9th Being Class Photopolymer Stamp Set. Next I heat embossed the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder on a piece of Baked Brown Sugar and then cut it out with my Scissors. It’s held to the front of the panel and the top and left sides are cut off. I then lined up the die again and cut out the negative from the Tree Ring and adhered it to the panel with Foam Tape. The panel is then mounted to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I love the simplicity of the card, it may be one of my favorite ones ever! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by to see me today! Have a stupendous Saturday! 🙂
