CFC #55 – Pink Thanks

June 6, 2012

Wanted to upload one last card for CAS-ual Friday this week. For this card, the process was tedious, but I’m proud of the result.

I first cut out little squares and rounded the two opposite corners. Using removable adhesive, I placed them on the card front and started sponging the area with some ink. Then I glued a few rinestones to the middle of each pattern.

Pink Thanks

    I love how you created your pattern and leaving the middle white for your sentiment just rocks it. The rhinestones give it a tuffeted look to the card.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Totally worth all the work. I honestly thought you had used the Modern Basics stamp set, but reading your post and looking closer, I can see that it is all one layer. So very cool. I’m pinning, and will perhaps try this with Modern Basics, because I am so very lazy.
