Good Morning! We are starting out the week HOT here. I guess we are truly in the dog days of summer. I won’t complain because it is going far too quickly. Today starts a new Kaboodle Doodles challenge. Our challenge this week is to add a little metal to your card. Our sponsor this week is Crafts 4 Eternity and up for grabs is 3 digi images from the store.
For my card, I chose the heart #1 image. Initially when I chose this image and knowing the challenge of adding metal, I thought I would use metallic thread to sew the scroll design on the hearts. I attempted this, but the thread was too thin and the stitching above my sewing skills. On to plan b.
I printed off the heart, cut it out and simply colored the rim with an R46 Copic. Then I added sterling Martha Stewart glitter to the scrolls with a Quickie Glue Pen. I chose a really striking color combo of black, red and silver. My silver is Stardream Metallic and it is cover sheet weight. I embossed it with the D’vine Swirls folder and love how deeply the embossing takes. Two ribbons, each with a ruffled edge, and some Mark Richards metals complete the card. I left off the sentiment, allowing the card to be used for any occasion.
