You Are Fabulous

My final card today is the one I made to send to Hilary for the January Card Chain Challenge.  I used the Colour Option (Walnut, Lavender & Jade), the Sketch Option, the Theme Option (Friendship) and the Product Option (Dies).

I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card blank and set it aside.  I cut two 1.5mm strips of lavender and two 1.5mm strips of jade textured card.  On one of the lavender strips I stamped and embossed 'Are Fabulous'.  Following the sketch these strips were then attached across the card.  I rounded the corners of the panel and attached it to the front of the card.  I stamped and embossed 'You' onto a snippet of white card and cut it with the coordinating die before attaching it with foam pads.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card
     Clearly Besotted 'Modern Calligraphy' stamps and coordinating die
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Snippets of white embossed card, white matt card, jade and lavender textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 370

This is the lovely card I've received from Gail:

I love the stripes in these two very pretty colours Kath, and the way you have used the sentiment looks great. The hammered card goes perfectly too. x

Great card Kath - and I love reading how you made things, step by step. I like the little touches such as rounding corners and also how you added the sentiment parts to those lovely stripes. A lovely card from Gail too! Cute!
