Hi everyone and welcome back to another Linky Party. For this Linky Party I wanted to create a clean and simple card. I started off die cutting a piece of mix media card stock with the largest fancy frame die and embossed it with Candied Apple Distress Ink. Using the medium die from the same set, I die cut a rectangle from white card stock and stamped the cute kissing fishes from the Lovies stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To color them in I used Spectrum Noir markers.
For my sentiment I used the "Thanks" from the new Greeting Word Die Set. Before die cutting it, I used a foam applicator and applied blue ink on white card stock. This was the same blue ink I wanted to use to stamp the rest of the sentiment using "for your friendship" from the Tiny Sentiments set. After die cutting the "Thanks", I adhered it to the center of my card with liquid glue. To embellish the panel, I used light blue and white sequins and adhered them to the corners of the card using glue dots.
To finish off the card, I adhered the scalloped rectangle to a top-folding white notecard. To give the front panel a bit of dimension, I used fun foam and adhered it to the larger panel.
I hope you enjoyed my card and get creative with this challenge! Hope to see you creations on the blog!
