Summer Card Camp 2 - Day 1

Hi there!

It feels so good to be creating cards again! My nasty wasp sting is just about healed and I am feeling so much better! I want to thank all of you for the sweet comments and get well wishes! :) 


I've got a card to share today. It's my homework from Summer Card Camp 2. We were given three sketches and a color combo to use. I chose the first sketch and used all the colors.


I turned the sketch on its side and used Jennifer's technique with the die-cut sentiment - cutting it six times to give it a bit more dimension. The large banner is what opens to view the inside, which I stamped with the same sentiment as the one I used to create the background.



And here's a close-up of the die-cut sentiment and sparkly hearts. I used a Wink of Stella Brush.


I loved day #1 of class and am looking forward to tomorrow's lesson. Just wish I had the week off from work to play more! 

Thanks for your visit! :)

Wow, Barb, I didn't know about the sting. I'm glad you're feeling better. What a wonderful idea to use the sentiment for the background and on the inside. I love the dimension on the die too.

Go directly to the head of the class, Barb! This is a real delight, and so summery. Glad to hear that your sting is better and you are able to return to crafting. What a pain the......! Class looks good. I'm not taking this one because we come and go so much in the summer. Will be anxious to see more gems.
