About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

CAS Anniversary Card

There are 2 challenges going on @ Outlawz that I entered this card into:
1.) Greeting Cards: Silver/Gold Wedding/Anniversary
2. CAS: Pearls

I'm not sure if this really counts as CAS, simply because of the layers, but the intention really was to do a CAS card. The free cartridge in the CCR this week is Wedding Invitation. The sample card was fabulous, so I gave it a shot. I decided to turn it into an anniversary card instead.
All papers, except the blue glitter paper are Very Vanilla Stampin' Up paper. The inks I used were Vintage Photo and a brown sharpie. The embossing folders I used are D'vine swirls, Swiss dots, and Mary Ann (all cuttlebug folders).
Here you can see that the edges of each layer were inked in brown sharpie to provide contrast. The 10 was cut from DCWV glitter paper. You can tell the main back ground was embossed with Mary Ann, the Belly Band with D'Vine Swirls, and the circle with Swiss Dots. Each layer of the center focal point was popped up with thin foam tape as to not make it too tall.
Just a closer look at the pearls. A light shade of blue to set them off a little bit.

Hope you like it.
