BLOG CANDY IS OPEN TODAY!!!!
So in case you missed the first post, I'm celebrating over 2000 hits, my birthday on the 20th, and longer days (Northern Alaska, here...we're finally coming out of the (literal) "Dark Ages"). =D First, a card.
I made this one from a SheetLoad acetate card that was part of the Ultimate Sampler pack I recently won in a blog candy at Moralia's Weblog. I was using a CPS sketch (but computer problems kept me from entering it in the challenge), some DCWV papers and Paper Temptress cardstock. The solid pink with the lacy border is called "Glimmer" and it's soooo pretty. The camera didn't capture the beauty of this cardstock. (ssshhh: you can get 1/4 sheet samples - up to six - of her paper here. Go get your samples today - just don't drool on me when you see her gorgeous stuff, ok?!?!) =D
The heart on the front and the panel of red inside the card are actually the same cardstock, but the angle of the card makes the cardstock look like a different shade. This card was rather simple, but I like the effect that clear cards give to the final product. I used my Nesties for the scalloped oval and a Martha Steward border punch.
