I am back for another sketch challenge! In case you have not noticed, sketch challenges are my favorite blogs! Having a great sketch, makes your cards come together so easily. Today, I am joining in the Fusion Card Challenge. With Fusion, you can use the sketch, the photo or both. I just went with the sketch. I might feel like a penguin with the negative temps…but am just not in the mood to stamp them! I went with a clean design with a few added layers. My card was created with the new Years of Sweetness Stamp Set. The set has a retro feel and I tried to carry that out with my two tone stamping. Here is a look at the complete set.
The outlined shapes coordinate with the Cricut Artbooking Collection. I have yet to stamp the cupcake, but I have seen some super cute cards created with it! Here is a look at the original sketch, which I pretty much completely copied!
I stamped my Happy Birthday image in pigment inks and clear embossed. The embossing gives the card a little pop in person. I created my own banners. I stamped Lagoon cardstock with either Lagoon ink and Sapphire ink. I popped up my birthday sentiment panel and curled the ends of the banners to give them more dimension.
