HOWDY

FridaySketchers_LinkToUs2

Hello, welcome to my blog today! Today i would love to show you the matching card i have made to give along with my star notebook. To kick off my card i used the sketch that my friend Jeanette came up with for the Friday Sketcher blog. CHECK IT OUT! We have some wonderful ideas with this sketch and also again a fab prize to win.

I have used the same embellishments, stamps and papers as listed on my posting yesterday so i do not want to bother you again with those details. However… on the book i have used chipboard letters that i have purchased in the store. For the card i wanted to come up with something different but be in the same “theme”. So i have cut from thin cardboard (a empty box of cereals will do) my circle shape with Nestabilities (layer both shapes at the same time onto the chipboard – so you will get the same radius) and cut it with my Big Shot out. Than i have added heavily glue to it and sprinkled with glitter (i used the sugar coating but there is crushed velvet as well) . Let dry and shake excess off. I have done this with a few things i have made and can show you a few more samples  over the next days.

Oh, and if you have some bare spots where no glue is, after it has dried just use a matching Copic marker and you can not see a difference. Doesn’t look this shape like it was store bought like the alphabet letters from yesterday???

Edit to add: the star in the front of the card is sketched and cut out by hand – a pain – i really want to get the Star Nestabilitie shape! The scallop star shape in the inside is made with a Bigz Sizziz die.

Now since my set is for my dear friend Jacque :-) The bar was set high.. lol and this time i could not get away with not decorating the inside of my card as well. haahaha.. noticed.. did the same with the back of the notebook too.
