2S4Y :: Joy

Hey there, Bleeps! I hope you had a great weekend. Today's card is inspired by Laura's sketch for 2S4Y. We used digital images by Sassy Studio Designs. I used Photoshop to color the image. Simply use the paint bucket tool, select color choice, and click on the area you want to 'color'. It is definitely not as fun as using colored pencils or shading with Copic markers, but it is a lot faster! Here is how I created the entire card:

  1. Trim white cardstock to create an A2 card base.
  2. Print image on card front.
  3. Trim black cardstock strip and adhere.
  4. Add ribbon treatment.
  5. Stamp sentiments.
  6. Add rhinestones.

Stamps :: Papertrey Ink - snowfall serenade
Ink :: Stampin' Up! - black
Paper :: Papertrey Ink - white, black
Embellishments :: Papertrey Ink - scarlet jewel ribbon; KaiserCraft - rhinestones; Sassy Studio Designs - hanging the wreath

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

This is TOO cute! I love it so much! OMG I'm typing this and reading Nicole's comments...LOL! We're thinking the same thing. I was just about to say that this looks like a card I'd pick up in the store and end up buying all of the ones on the shelf! (back in the days when I bought cards from the store, that is! Lol!) LOVE it! :-)
