Back again with a new card!
And I had to make it with a plaster on my thumb as I sliced (just a tiny bit... but let's be dramatic!) my finger with my guillotine paper cutter! How can a finger cut be so painful I don't know!
Anyway... a bit of a different card for me this time as I gave my Promarkers a break. But I did a lot of stamping! I got quite a few new crafty goodies for Christmas and I tried a few of them for the first time on this card.
And after a lot of tweaking and moving elements around, this is the result.
I really want to try different styles, and this is one I will try again!
I used this beautiful sentiment clear stamp as the main focus of the card. One of my new Christmas crafty goodies! It's from the Ranger Dylusions range. I really love the meaning of the sentiment... It will make me to smile more when I read it! It's such a positive message.
I also used my new Splodge and Splat clear stamp to create the background of the sentiment.
The heart die from Sizzix by Tim Holtz and the arrow stamp from Craft Asylum Hello Sunshine (part of a set) are also new.
