Good Morning from Northern California. I hope this day finds you smiling and in a crafty mood! This is my first post as a member of the 2013 Poppystamps Design Team and may I say....I am over the moon! I am one lucky lady and I am fortunate enough to be spending this year with very talented ladies.
I am having such fun with the Poppystamps and Memory Box dies. You can see more on my blog page: Glitter Grammy Plays With Paper For this card I used one of my favorite dies, the Grand Gothic Stained Glass and Grand Gothic Window. To make the window appear to be glass, I used a piece of plastic, and used re-inkers and a sponge to spread the color. I tried backing it with a mirror cardstock, but found that white actually worked much better to reflect the color back. Here's a close up....
Peeking out from behind the window is the Lorelai Outline Leaf which is another of my very favorite dies. Ok....as you will see when you read my blog....I have tons of very favorite dies. Frankly, I think my card life was quite dull before I discovered dies.
Something I enjoy doing, and there is a practical reason for this. I always do an inside for my cards. I found out early in my card making life that while I have the papers, and dies out for a creation, it's just easier to finish the card. If I have to go back to it later....it may never happen, or I'll waste time digging through supplies to find something that matches the outside. That said....here's the inside:
Note, there is no sentiment inside. That's a common thing for me. Since I make cards daily, sometimes for specfic people and sometimes just to have on hand, I don't want a sentiment to limit who the card would go to and I want to have room to write a personal note. I do always try to have a die or two on the inside of the card. For this inside I used: Treble Clef and Musical Interlude Both are Memory Box Dies.
So, this is my card, I hope you like it, I'm happy! Here's wishing you a most creative day.
