Hi, everyone -- I hope you are having a lovely week! I was in need of a special thank you card for some very special people, and this week's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch #199 from My Favorite Things came to my rescue! Here's the sketch:
And here's my card (turned horizontal):
I'm still embracing the gold trend and used this gorgeous gold metallic cardstock from Ellen Hutson -- it's not too bright or too antique ... the perfect color, I think! I die cut it with MFT's fun Square Grid Cover-up Die-namics, then used the die to cut four out of five of MFT's pretty pink cardstock colors (from lightest to darkest): Pink Lemonade, Bubblegum, Cotton Candy, and Razzle Berry. Then I just mixed up the pink squares until I was happy with the combination:
I used Ranger's Matte Multi Medium to securely glue the grid and squares to my Bubblegum card base. Next, I die cut four of the Many Thanks Die-namics from the gold metallic cardstock and layered them together to make a thicker die cut "Thanks" sentiment. The Layered Rose Die-namics was used to die cut all of the pink colors of cardstock as well, and then layered together. It was finished off with a gold metallic cardstock center popped up on Copic Foam Tape..
You can play along with this week's sketch, too, and possibly win a terrific prize ... we hope you'll join us!
