The challenge this week at Justrite Stampers is to create a card based on the provided sketch. I wanted to create a masculine card this week, so I used the sail boat from the By the Sea stamp set and the phrase from the Thinking of You stamp set (I just inked up the phrase).
I "painted" the image with assorted colors of Clearsnap Smooch Ink then cut the frame with my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge. This was then sewn to my background piece. Buttons were threaded with fibers and added to the card with glue dots.
I added some fibers down the side of the card, then added foam dots to the back of my image for some depth. I cut the sentiment with my Oval Nestabilities and added it to the frame with a brad. Several foam dots hold it in place.
