The challenge this fortnight at TIME OUT is to be inspired by the following words:
There are a lot of ways to be inspired by these words but I chose to focus on the first one: smile:
To make this card, I used one of my favourite techniques - adhering die cuts to the card base to create a background. I usually do this tone on tone - but I decided to change it up this time by using four different colours of cardstock to create an ombre effect. I think that I may have seen this done before by someone with this die but I couldn't find where - so I couldn`t reference it. The die is from Simon Says Stamp.
The greeting is from MFT - white embossed on a black die cut (also MFT) and popped up with some foam. I found a few different shades of pink sequins in my stash and added them to the card front to finish it off.
