I hope everyone had a very good Christmas. I got to see my family, which is always nice. It was especially nice to be able to see my brother, I haven't seen him in three years. I did however, have a chaotic Christmas Eve day. I spent the morning in the emergency room, because my husband split his lip open and needed 14 stitches. He is doing good, other than a swollen lip, and the rest of the weekend went very well. But, on to the card!This is a 5"x7" card, made with white cardstock and a black piece cut 1/8" smaller. I then embossed the black cardstock with the Polka Dots embossing folder and adhered it to the card base. I sprayed that with a silver shimmer mist by Tsukineko. I stamped the gem flourish, from Inkadinkado, onto some black cardstock with starlite silver ink from Tsukineko. I then trimmed the cardstock to fit and cut some white cardstock 1/4" larger than the black. I sprayed that image with sparkle shimmer mist and adhered it onto the card. I then cut a white strip of cardstock at 7"x1" and a black piece 3/16" smaller. I adhered them down and stamped my sentiment in the same ink, using letter stamps. I finished it off with some gems.
I used the sketch from today's "Super Sketchy Sunday," at 365 Cards for the layout of my card. I was also inspired for the colors and the look of the card by this week's photo inspiration at Crafty Ho's. Finally, I also made this for My Sheri Crafts, where the challenge is "sprays/mists."
