I created a card that is dedicated to Breast Cancer awareness. Unfortunately, there have been way too many wonderful women that did not win the fight against this horrible disease, some were very close to me and my family...
Let's keep on fighting and cherish our family and friends along the way...
Here is my card:
I was inspired by the design of a card by a super talented young lady Pamellia Johnson. You can take a look at her beautiful work here
I used brayer to apply some Antique Linen ink onto debossed side of damask embossing folder, then I ran beige color heavy cardstock through Cuttlebug which gave the cardstock antique look. I sponged raised parts of embossed surface with Spun Sugar Ink and added here and there clear crackle paint and I sparingly heat embossed this piece with snow embossing powder. I distressed the edges quite a bit since I wanted the card to look very shabby and chic. :) Base layer of the card is light pink cardstock piece with distressed edges.
The sentiment was created using Cricut Sophisticated Cartridge font. I sponged top layer with Spun Sugar Ink and then applied Clear Crackle Paint. The bottom part was sponged with Antique Linen Ink. I then attached the letters to a piece of cardstock that was treated with home made pink texture paste using Tim Holtz Harlequin stencil. While texture paste was still wet I sprinkled some Martha Stewart coarse crystals on it. I learned this technique from Pamellia
I used pink spray ink to die a piece of white seam binding ribbon. This bow has many, many loops. I stopped counting after 4 :) I decorated the bow with a handmade flower and I topped the flower with beautiful vintage metal flower embellishment.
A better look at the key embellishment from this angle...
Couple more angle shots of the card, so that you can see how dimensional this card really is...
