Special Life

Today, I'm sharing a card for CPS sketch, which is sponsored by PTI this week. I decided to use a more vintage style by distressing the edges and using lace. It's a really simple card and can be given to someone for many occasions, including friendship, birthday, love, or just because.

So...what do you think?

According to the poll that I conducted on the blog for the past week, most people want the blog to remain the same. Based on the people who did vote, a large number requested video or image tutorials. I've decided to give both a try. Now, this doesn't mean I will contribute video or image tutorials every week, but maybe once a month, depending on how much time it will take to edit and add these features. If I like one more than the other, I'll probably just select one for the future to always use. Thanks so much for each of you who voted. I appreciate your input!

Here's how to create this card:
  1. Trim brown cardstock to 4.25" x 11", then score at 5.5".
  2. Trim raspberry fizz cardstock to about 3.5" x 4.5"
  3. Stamp gridline design.
  4. Add lace trim.
  5. Distress edges and adhere to card base with dimensionals.
  6. Punch heart and distress edges.
  7. Adhere to card base with dimensionals.
  8. Add rhinestones and key.
  9. Stamp sentiment on pink cardstock, distress, and adhere under heart.
  10. Add rhinestones to center of gridlines design.
