OWH Virtual Cardmaking Party
The first card I made today was this Vest Card. There is a video tutorial on U-Stream to show you how to make this vest. I'm not really pleased with this one, but will try some more later.
The next card I made was to use the Sights & Sounds of Summer to create a card. Since I live in the desert, I think of the sun in the summer. The troops serving in the Middle East also see a lot of sun in summer, so I thought they might enjoy sending this card home.
I cut out the sun with a Sizzix Original die - Blazing Sun. I used a hot yellow for the sun and distressed the flares with Memento Potter's Clay ink. I cut a couple of circles with Nestibility circles to highlight the sun.
I stamped the sentiments with Hero Arts stamps with Memento Potter's Clay ink & added layering with the same paper I used around the sun.
