It seems that technology is even creeping into my card making. ;) Actually, that was today's challenge at 365 Cards. The challenge was to use what you see in texting on your card, the abbreviated words and phtrases. I used the colors from Color Throwdown: always artichoke, baja breeze, cameo coral. I also used this week's ABC Challenge, which is a sketch and L is for Lace. Since I don't actually have any lace on hand I used a border punch to create some paper lace.
The card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used some dark green cardstock to make the card base. I trimmed some white cardstock at 4 1/4"x6." I used some blue patterned paper from DCWV's Citrus Stack and some pink patterned paper by Penny Lane for my background. Those strips are cut at 5 7/8"x1 3/4." I cut a piece of shimmery white cardstock at 5 3/4"x1 3/4" and then used a Martha Stewart border punch to create my lace. I then tied a polka dotted blue ribbon around the card. I mounted a green rectange, cut at 3 3/8"x2 5/8," onto the card and layered it with white cardstock, cut at 3 1/4"x2 1/2." My sentiment, "THX," was cut from Smiley Cards. The largest two were cut in green, at 1 1/2" and 1 1/4." I cut the pink one at 1." I inked the edges of the green sentiments in hint of pesto ink by Tsukineko. I glued the green sentiments down, layering them, and pop-dotted the pink sentiment. I finished it off with some fruit punch Stickles on the pink sentiment. Enjoy!!
