My Creative Time Design Team Card


Happy Saturday everyone! My card today is a really special one.  I’m sure everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and a lot of people know someone that’s been affected by this disease. Well, my dearly departed grandmother died of breast cancer and this card makes me think of her. I think it’s fitting that I make a card in remembrance of her as I use to make all of my art projects for her when I was a kid. Never for my mom, always for my grandmother.

DSCF7434It’s a standard A2 card. The base is white, and I inked the edges with Memento Angel Pink.

DSCF7438Personally, I really like the juxtaposition of the distressed edges and the elegance of the stamps and embellishments. And, I did something very new to me – blending inks. The mat with the damask and paisley background was the same shade as the inside mat. After heat embossing the images with white embossing powder, I used my blending tool and Memento Rose Bud and Angel pink to give the paper a worn effect.

DSCF7437Here’s a close-up of the inking and embossing. I used white Zing! embossing powder from American Crafts. And the bling is a Prima swirl. I’m in love with those.

DSCF7436The sentiment was stamped with my trusty VersaMark Dazzle and embossed with pewter Zing! embossing powder. The ribbons were adhered with hot glue and I used a ribbon slide from Hobby Lobby. 


I decided to enter my card into the design team call at My Creative Time. I have to say I look forward to her sneaky peek weeks more than Hello Thursday now! Plus, I’ve learned a lot from watching her videos, so I would be super thrilled to design for her.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day.
