U Rock!

Hey everyone!

Well, I know I said I had a lot of cards to post, and I started doing a good job of posting regularly … then life got in the way as usual! I’m still playing catch-up big time so thought I better start trying to post regularly again, especially as I’ve still been creating and have even more of a backlog now!
So today I have a little card I made quite some time ago:
I really love how funky this card is! I think it could work for a guy or a girl!
I started with the striped pattern which was stamped on Hawaiian Shores cardstock using Distressed Stripes. Love this set! I stamped the different stripes using True Black and Fresh Snow inks.
I trimmed the panel to fit a 5.5″ x 3.5″ card base, which I cut from True Black cardstock. I wanted an element to lead off the edge so I punched a strip of Stamper’s Select White cardstock using my SU! punch the adhered side-by-side with the panel. I used a strip of True Black Saddle Stitch ribbon along the join before mounting the whole panel on the card base using Scor Tape.
I die cut the sentiment panel from Hawaiian Shores cardstock using the Fillable Frames #1 die, then stamped the frame from Fillable Frames #1 on it. I then chose the sentiment from Say It With Style and stamped inside the frame using True Black ink. Love how it fits in the frame so perfectly! I adhered the sentiment to the card using foam pads then added a trio of black Kaiser Scrapbook pearls to finish the design.

I’d love to know what you think of this little card! Your comments always bring a smile to my face so thank you for leaving some love if you’ve chosen to do so! I’ll be back tomorrow with my Blog Hop post, bye for now!
