Here's a rather quick card I put together (getting better, aren't I?). I wanted to play with those Shimmer Sheetz that have been sitting on the shelf for many months. So I ran a gold one thru the Cuttlebug using a Damask folder. I then inked the raised areas using Staz-On ink (since the Shimmer SheetZ are non-porous). The rest is pretty straightforward with die cuts for the sentiment. I added a lovely sheer black bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ and a tiny bit of bling on the knot. That gold striped cardstock for the first layer is made by Marco Papers (another little item I've had for a while).
LOL! if you look carefully, you'll see the image of my hand over the camera just above the bow on the left! These gold Shimmer Sheetz are very reflective -- good thing I was dressed :). Also the darkness along the left side of the card is the shadow effect. This was a tough card to photographic -- guess I should go back to Editing 101.
Here's a shot angled the reverse way -- see how the shadow moved to the right?
Well, I'll be back next week with a cute little St. Patty's Day project. In the meantime, stay tuned for Amber Hillman's post on Tuesday. These Designers of mine are doing a spectacular job, wouldn't you say?
Thanks for stopping by.
