Fab Friday 70 – jkcards

Fab Friday 70

Oh… happy Friday peeps! The weather was nice but a bit cooler yesterday. Last night little Daniel was at my parents so I got to spend some time with him. I came home after and worked on a few projects and he came over with Taylor to visit. Later on I headed over to Heather’s for thirsty Thursday. It was nice to catch up with Heather and Stephanie and Michael stopped by too. I’m off to Manhattan this evening to spend the weekend at my friend Kim’s. She is going to CT for the weekend and Michael is working at The Ink Pad today and tomorrow so she was nice enough to offer us the apartment. Thanks Kim! Looking forward to it!

Every other Friday means that it’s time for another Fab Friday challenge and this week we have a sketch…

Fab Fri 70 8-07-2015

I was fixated on using a new embossing folder that I got so that’s where this card began. The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Tip Top Taupe and covered the entire card front with it. Next up is a piece of Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper and a piece of Delightful Dijon that are cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. The Dijon piece is embossed with the Cricut Cuttlebug Old Paris Embossing Folder and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. My Eiffel Tower is from the “Vintage” Artistic Etchings Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Delightful Dijon and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Foam Tape adheres it to the card. A piece of Washi Tape is adhered to some Solar White 80lb and adhered to the card with more Foam Tape, a thin strip of Real Red is adhered across the bottom. My hello is a piece of Basic Black that I cut out with the Greetings Thinlits and adhered to the washi with Multi-Purpose Glue. I love that embossing folder and the Eiffel Tower image with the eclectic color combo! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge! Don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s projects and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for checking in today! I wish all a very fabulous Friday! 🙂
