The Card Concept #55: {You Are My Sunshine}

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept - {You Are My Sunshine}

This month we are thrilled to welcome Becca Cruger to our team as Guest in the Mixed Media category! Her cards are awesome!

We are also happy to welcome two new designers to our team! Please join us in welcoming, Jennifer Timko & Ilina Crouse! Learn more about them at the TCC Blog.

Here's the photo inspiration:

Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or better yet, share you own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about!

The styles are explained HERE.


Here's my mixed media card, inspired by the background and the sentence:

I tore a piece of gray cardstock, adhered it on card base and added some washi tape.
I tore a piece of yellow cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Memento Paris Dusk. I used a stencil and VersaMark, and heat embossed the background in clear.
After adhering it on card, I finished it off with some sequins.

2. CAS Mix Up May: (my choice was stenciling)
