Lucky You

Hey everyone! Remember me?!

I’ve not posted for such a long time. Hope you can forgive me. Life etc. I want to get back to posting again regularly this year, and after an impassioned plea from Steph (thanks honey!) I decided to bite the bullet and start by posting this card that I made last year:

What do you think? I know you won’t have seen any of my stuff for ages so this might seem quite different from my usual stuff! I’ve been experimenting a lot with different styles, giving them a go, and letting the card dictate what the style ends up being. This one is my brand of ‘CAS’ I guess – which basically means CAS but more complicated as is my way!

I started by die-cutting a Tag Sale #3 die from Hibiscus Burst cardstock and stamping it with one of the images from Grunge Me using True Black ink. Edged the tag with the same and added a True Black cardstock reinforcer (from Tag Sale #1 die).

I then die-cut the words from True Black cardstock using Wonderful Words and coated with hand-mixed Martha Stewart glitters (for the pink/black). To do this I use a spray adhesive. The words were then carefully adhered (with dimension!) to some Angled Labels die cuts cut from Stamper’s Select White cardstock. I used trusty Pinflair Glue Gel, a pin and lots of patience to add dimensional glue behind the letters so it can’t be seen!!

Once all that was dry the labels were adhered to the tag and the card was assembled on a Stamper’s Select White card base with a Doily Details die cut from True Black cardstock peeking out from behind the tag. Lots of Pinflair for these steps too so the whole thing has quite a bit of dimension. For a finishing touch I added some pink and black DMC embroidery floss and some thin white ribbon from my stash.

I would love to hear what you think of this card. I’m hoping that maybe my posts have been missed and that this is hopefully a good comeback card! Thanks for stopping by!
