I’m back with another challenge for Sentimental Sundays! This week, we are sponsored by Calypso’s Crafty Things – and there’s a fabulous prize for the lucky winner! The theme for this challenge is “Inside and Out”, another first for me! I always pay a lot of attention to the front of my cards, but I can’t remember ever continuing the theme inside!
I based my card around sketch 60 at From The Heart Sketches. I love to flick through the old sketches when I’m struggling to pin down a design, it’s just packed full with inspiration! So, the details for my card…. The image I have used is a MilkCoffee freebie from a while back – not sure how I have overlooked her for so long!! I coloured her using Pro-Markers as usual. I’ve tried a new hair combo – Ivory, Satin and Tan – and I’m really pleased with the way it’s turned out. The image on the inside of the card is by Patties Creations. I’ve coloured the ballet slipper with ProMarkers, then mounted on a lilac mat before popping it inside the card.
To create the frame on the front of the card, I designed a “ring doughnut” shape in the Silhouette software by laying a smaller circle over the larger circle and the subtracting the top shape. I then welded the letters of my daughter’s name to the outside edge of the doughnut. The banner pieces were also cut from glitter card on the Silhouette, before being hand stitched to the corrugated card with some matching ribbon.
The papers on the front of the card are from the Papermania Spots and Stripes collection; all the other papers are from my stash.
Make sure you pop over to Sentimental Sundays to see what the rest of the DT have been up to this week!
