Hi friends! This is the second card I made on Saturday in honor of World Card Making Day. I loved this sketch from Cas(e) this Sketch challenge.
I needed a get well card for my husband's uncle and was in my fall mood again, so I used fall colors and maple leaves. I learned a new technique this summer at a stamp show here in Buffalo, NY. The company Prickley Pear was demonstrating it and I thought it was pretty cool. You cover cardstock with Scor-tape and run it through your die cutting machine with a die. Then pull off the protective paper and cover with Glitter Ritz Cool Highlight glitter. Stamp the coordinating image onto the glitter with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then color over the glitter with copic markers. I used various yellow and orange markers. It doesn't ruin your marker tips either. Love the way it turned out. Great sketch!
I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday challenge. Simon says we are going dotty, so I did! I added this pretty dotted patterned paper.
Thanks for stopping by today! I'll have my last World Card Making Day card posting tomorrow, so stop by again!
