Tuesday Morning Sketches #466

Hello!  Thank your for stopping by.  Our latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a really easy one.  I think you're going to like it.

My card features papers, stickers and dies from a past card kit that I purchased when Spellbinders had a too good to pass up sale.  This was, if memory serves, is September 2017.  I haven't had a chance to play with it until this past week.  I had off 5 days and although I had super high expectations to get a lot of crafting done - I didn't.  But I still enjoyed the time off.  It was needed.

This card was super easy to put together.  I used the card base that came in the kit as well as the decorative paper and black card stock.  Spellbinders card kits are really cool - they send paper, embellishments, card stock, ephemera, ribbons/fibers and of course, dies.  There are 11 dies in this kit.  I cut two leaves from the gold foil card stock and one label from white card stock.  This kit also has these cool sentiments that are gold on clear plastic.  This card went together in about 10-12 minutes.

In this view you see how pretty and shiny the gold paper is.  I finished this off with some black twine that I made a little bow from and adhered using Ranger Multi-Medium Matte.  This is really strong glue and dries to a matte finish so it's virtually invisible.

I hope you like my card and you're inspired to join us.  Be sure to visit the design team, too.  They created some beauties to share with you.

Very nice card. I especially like the way your die cuts match the paper. I have been impressed with the kits that you get. So often I find kits to be disappointing, but you use yours to perfection! Very nicely done.

I really like how that bold dsp is toned down with the pretty sentiment panel. Love the gold accents too!
