This is another card for OWH. I was able to stray a wee bit from my pink and brown rut, eh? Keeping things CAS (Clean and Simple, in case you don’t know), I began with a Petal Pink Card base from Lasting Impressions. I used a cool blue (one of my very favorite colors!) as a matte.
The white scalloped border is cut from Core’dinations pearl paper. I used my Silhouette Cameo and a design called “cute scallop border” by Lori Whitlock. I love her designs!! I used my Silhouette Studio DE software to create an internal offset, and set it at 1.25 before applying it to get the loopier effect on the border. I then welded the borders to a rectangle for easier application to my card once the design was cut.
The font I used for the U is LD Petticoat Black. I drew a large rectangle, sized the U to fit, and then opened the Modify window to subtract the U from the rectangle. I wanted the striped paper to sit behind the pink matte, so I needed the negative space of the U.
I stamped the “Thinking of You” and the little border underneath with two different stamp sets by Studio 112, which I found in the dollar bins and JoAnn’s! Awesome price, right?? I used StazOn ink in Jet Black (apparently, my white ink pad is almost dried out– guess I’ll have to hit the craft store soon!!).
I’ve got another 20 cards for our Heroes. Hooray!
PS: I decided to play with the Paper Players and submitted my card in their latest challenge. Here’s the sketch!
PPS: I also decided to submit this card with the colourQ challenge. Participating with them helped me get out of my color rut!! Here’s their color swatch.
