World Card Making Day With Penny Black

Happy World Card Making Day

I am very excited to join Penny Black as they celebrate the occasion "here" ALL DAY LONG with prizes, giveaways and lots of card art!

Here is a little joy I created to share with the world….

Finished Size:  3-3/8 x 3-3/4

Card Details: 
  • A white Les Petites card base was trimmed shorter and a decorative edge from a Labels Twenty-Two die was incorporated.
  • The front of the card was covered with a matching piece of Rose Garden cardstock distressed with Love Letter Memento and stamped with Inspiring in Espresso Truffle Memento.
  • The next layer is elevated and is an embossed piece of Madison paper edged in Peanut Brittle Memento and Delicata Golden Glitz inks.
  • Another elevated layer contains the cute critters from Joy to the World stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.   The top half was fussy cut and additional stamped accents of the scarves, ear muffs and hat were added.  Tip/Hint: Silicone is a wonderful adhesive alternative.  Perfect for attaching accents and simultaneously adding a tiny bit of dimension.
  • The small banner with the sentiment from Peace on Earth is highlighted with Summer Sky Memento ink and is flanked by two red beads threaded on twine.
Enjoy all the festivities,
