Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday,
Did a little shopping this morning while the hubby and daughter went to see Star Wars in 3D at the IMAX theater. Yes, I am one of the few who has no desire to see the movie, but hubby did say it was good. We went to lunch at the Olive Garden afterwards (so scrumptious since I haven't eaten bread in 3 weeks...I cheated today and had a couple breadsticks with my soup and salad) and then I came home to make these two cards. I wish the lighting was better, but it sure is gloomy outside.
I used the Meant to Sparkle stamp set by My Favorite Things as the focal point on both square cards (5 1/2 x 5 1/2).
First, I created the background using a MFT diagonal bars stencil.
Then I used silver embossing powder for the sentiment and added a few scattered sequins.
For the second card I used the same stamp set on a MFT zigzag stitched oval, but with gold embossing powder.
I just bought this package of foil bows at Hobby Lobby (50% off) when I went shopping today. Great colors and fun patterns.
Hoping to make another project tonight...maybe my bestie, crafty friend will be available. Where are you Carri?!?!? Let's get crafty!
