The Card Concept #63 {Love & Joy}

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

It's time for a new challenge at The Card Concept - {Love & Joy}
This will be my last card...I just need to take a break...I've been too sick lately, so just need to rest a bit! Or hibernate...'cause winter is coming! =)
I wanted to thank Leslie and my team mates for everything! It was an awesome year being a part of this DT!

OK, so 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 colors and greenery:

I die cut the patterned paper and red panel, using Stitched Rectangles (The Stamps of Life).
I dry embossed the red panel, then rubbed VersaMark on and heat embossed it in gold.
I stamped some greenery in black on green cardstock, cut them out and added some color with fluorescent green colored pencil. 
I stamped the frame and sentiment (CTMH) on light green cardstock, and heat embossed the sentiment in light green, then copper. I decorated the frame with Copic markers, gel pens and Liquid Pearl and adhered it on card with foam tape.
I added some more Liquid Pearl on greenery and red panel.

Here's a photo with flash to show the shine:
