Create-A-Card sketch 11-15-2011

Time for another Create a Card Sketch. Here's the sketch we were given...
Here's my take on the sketch...

I embossed my red card base and then cut a circle in dark green. Next I used the Cardinal folder to emboss the circle. Then I sprayed copper color spray all over the circle and waited for it to dry so I could glue it down. I kept this one pretty simple.

Thanks for looking,

Create-A-Card sketch 11-8-2011

Here's another Create a Card sketch cardHere's what I did with the sketch...
Here it is again. Above is the photo-edited version, while below is the straight from the scanner version (I still don't see the red looking like it does in real life in either photo).

I used Magic Mesh and since I didn't have to adhere it down with extra adhesive, I'll have to hope it stays on. The corners were created with my Creative Memories punch and the sentiment was made with my computer. The candle image is a CDAC Progressive Challenge image colored with my alcohol markers (no matter what I tried to do, I couldn't get the shading of the white candle to show up). I also used the gold glitter specia pen on the candle and the yellow one on the flame.

Thanks for looking,

Create-A-Card sketch 11-1-2011

Time for another Create a Card sketch
I used this sketch to make a 4.25 by 5.5 card instead of a square card.
I typed the sentiment and printed it with my printer then punched them with my Creative Memories circle punch. I also used the CM circle pattern to cut the larger circle. I cut 1.5 inch strip of paper and ran it through my cuttlebug with the Plum Blossoms folder. To make the flower behind VERY, I used two white acrylic flowers from Queen & Co. Fab Flowers "hottie" but to make them red, I used Alcohol Ink in Cranberry to get them that dark color. It's also the same red, just not as concentrated, on the large circle in the corner.
