Celebrate

I created this card using the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches and the recipe from CAS on Sunday (choose any three items in a straight line from the grid).


I went for the diagonal - top right to bottom left. That meant using heat or dry embossing, twine/ribbon and I decided to interpret Male or Female as a unisex card.  This is what I came up with:


 To start with I flicked mica powder paint onto the card blank to get an interesting background.  Then I made the bunting by wrapping washi tape around a bit of string and then cutting the shape.

For the sentiment I dry embossed the word "Celebrate", went over it with a Versamark pen and then heat embossed with gold.  The edges of the sentiment and two ribbons were also embossed with gold.

  1. Great use of washi for the bunting and love the unisex colours. Thanks for playing at CC&S. And did you know they're wanting washi at The Male Room if you fancy linking up?

  6. I love the versatility of your card. It's equally appropriate for a birthday, a graduation, a new baby, a new job, or anything else worth celebrating! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at CC&S! I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge.
