Hi All – I am on a little vacation this week. A fun trip to the beach with some girlfriends from GFC (Girlfriend Camp).
I thought it would be fun to send Hubby a little card while I am gone to let him know I miss him.
The challenge this week at The Paper Players is to make a CAS (Clean and Simple) Card with the theme: “Frames.”
The first thing I thought of was glass frames as Hubby and I are at that fun stage in life where we are always looking for our reading glasses and/or sharing each others.
And… After 33 years, my heart still does stop and skip a beat when he looks at me. ❤
Hence the design for this week’s Paper Players Design Team Inspiration Card.
Here’s what I used and how I made it.
- Stampinup Card Stock in red and black
- Arches Watercolor Paper
- Stampinup Crystal Effects
- Stampinup Hello Life Stamp Set
- My Favorite Things Geek is Chic Stamp Set and Die Cut
- Stazon Black Ink
- Red Watercolor Paint
- Glue dots and Tombow Multi Mono Glue for adhesive
I simly drew and watercolored a heart on a piece of watercolor paper, splattered it a bit, and stamped the sentiment on with Stazon JetBlack Ink.
I then die cut the glasses out and put a thin layer of Crystal Accents for a glossy accent on them. When that dried, I adhered it with small glue dots, and assembled the layers on the card.
I added a little line heart on the inside from StampinUp’s Hello Life Stamp Set.
So – Here’s looking at you, Merv. And if you look back, I might wink. 😉
Cheers and Hugs,
