Something a bit different


Hello, hello!

Erica on the blog today with my second card of 2017. Boy, does time fly.. I can't believe it's the 15th of January already! Yikes. It's not just me, is it? Where is the time going? I can't quite keep up at times, it feels like. And I'm not even overly busy to be perfectly honest but still it seems like the days just poof by.

With that in mind, I'm going to keep it relatively short today. Short for me anyway, lol! I know I usually jibber-jabber away about all aspects of the card of the day but today, I don't really see how I can drag it out too much. It really is a super simple card!

My (current) favorite colour combination is navy and gold. I can't quite put my finger on why I love it so much but it just works in my mind. My original idea was to have a cutout saying 'thanks' but I made the navy panel too small and I had already heatembossed the lovely Just A Rose in gold embossing powder on it by the time I realised this. So a quick rethink and 'hugs' ended up being the backup plan.

The word 'hugs' is a creative cut from Winnie & Walter, I love this font and the robustness of the words cut out. I cut it out twice, once in white linen textured card stock and once in vellum. These two pieces I layered on top of each other so that the vellum created a 'shadow' to the linen one. On the back of the piece I added foam tape to raise it up a bit from the navy panel.




Before I added the cutout, I wrapped some gold twine around the navy panel just to the left of the heatembossed rose and tied a little bow. Once the bow was arranged and securely tied, I added the 'hugs'. As usual, I can't seem to leave a card without enamel accents or sequins, so I sprinkled a few sequins from the Moon Beams sequin mix.

The navy panel was then adhered to a card base also in the linen card stock to keep everything matching.





And that, my friends, was it! How easy and quick was that??

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
