Hi there. Today I am sharing a really CAS Mix Media card I made with my husband in mind. He’s been feeling under the weather the last couple of days and I wanted to make a card to let him know I am here for him no matter how awful he looks, feels and looks. Oops, did I say that twice? *lol* 😂 Actually, he looks the same to me. Anyway, in keeping with my crafty resolution to use what I buy at least once, I used another two NBUS stamp sets for today’s card.
First, I die cut a Stitched Rectangle panel from white cardstock. Then I created a mask with masking paper and the beautiful Heartstrings die. Spun Sugar distress ink was blended through the mask to create the background. I added Perfect Pearls to give it some shimmer. It was difficult to capture it in a photo, but it is pretty IRL
The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black cardstock strip and mounted with foam adhesive. For more shimmer I added clear Wink of Stella to the strip. The stitched panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and a few NBUS clear droplets were added to finish.
I actually created the monochromatic card first with Smoky Slate ink because I know my hubby is not a fan of pink or colours for that matter. I thought the gray felt a little cold and a subtle colour would soften it up. And I callied it… my hubby liked the gray and disliked the pink.
