I'm back with my card for day 11 of Card Positioning Systems 5th anniversary celebration. Here is the sketch (#170):
I needed to make a thank you card for a very generous gal in the Hero Arts Flickr group (thanks again, Greta!), and I knew that I wanted to use the Hero Arts Zigzag background, but like I said in day 10's post, I just can't get enough Paper Smooches lately. And there's a super cute "many thanks" stamp in my poor lonely "Word Salad" set (can't wait to get my first installment of the PS club next month!), so I decided to have some fun using the "many thanks" with the zigzag. I rarely use purple in my projects, so I thought I'd challenge myself to do something I little different. I stamped the zigzag background onto a purple card base using Colorbox fluid chalk ink in Wisteria. I stamped the entire "many thanks" stamp onto a strip of white cardstock using black ink. Then I did a WHOLE bunch of masking (of "many") and stamping (of just "thanks") to create a background with many thanks on it, using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Dusty Concord. And now for the paper yummies:
I stamped the cute little heart from the Word Salad set on either side of the "many thanks", then colored them yellow to match my button and baker's twine. I used the new trick that I "invented" for tying shorter ribbons, and added a couple of stacked buttons. I finished it off with some Glossy Accents on the little hearts. I think it turned out really cute. Here's a closer view:
I'm submitting this card to Paper Smooches March Guest Designer Search, and playing along at Cupcake Craft Challenges "Entwined" challenge. Thanks for looking!
