Some years ago, my mom lent me some heavy-duty fringe scissors which I'm only now getting around to using! I went through my ever-growing scrap box for my ROY G BIV papers. I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the gold & white frames. I used a ruler & a blue gel pen to draw the out border.
I colorized the sentiment by Coosty Creations in Photoshop and printed it on a shiny white paper. I cut some clouds with an IO die on my BigShot from the same paper, and used them to frame the sentiment. To bring it all together, I added a gemstone embellishment which I had partially colored with a blue Copic.
I made the inside message section by masking the center, coloring it with Copics, and added a border with the same blue pen I used on the front. The little cloud inside is actually leftover from another project; it was stamped with blue ink & I added detail with a glitter pen.
Be sure to check out all the projects Pile It On! this week. My card ended up being very similar in design to Jenn's and similar in style to Helen's...great minds think alike I guess! Many thanks to the SBDO artists for letting us play with their great images.
