Today's card is a happily little "Sampler" of several new techniques for me. I attend as many of the weekly Demos at Stampadoodle as I can. Recently, Wendy, the owner, did a demo on washi tape. She showed us a beautiful, amazing piece of art she did using washi tape and a circle punch. She completely covered 4x4 pieces of paper with washi tape, and then punched a circle, spun the circle image within the space created, then re-punched another circle overlapping it (kinda like a Venn diagram!). I tried this technique but used a rectangle instead of square, and used two different sized circle dies to cut the circles. Here is the card:
I also wanted to try other embellishments, so I adhered sticky tape across the bottom and sprinkled fine glitter. I also put blue, aqua and purple rhinestones on the left side of the card, a ribbon across the top, and did clear embossing on the Lawn Fawn Many Thanks sentiment. I love Lawn Fawn! And, my friend Mary gave me this stamp set, so I had to make a thank you using it to thank her for her incredibly generous and wonderful gift! I also put little Pearl dots around the sentiment, and across the top of the card. And, just to add a little more sparkle, I circled the sides and top of the card with a Martha Stewart glitter glue.
Here is a close up of the Many Thanks sentiment with clear embossing.
I had a lot of fun making this card - and Mary loved it!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
