Krafty Group Portrait Card
In some posts earlier this year I talked about my crafty group. The four of us crafters meet every month or so to make cards, have desserts and enjoy an afternoon together. It is always a fun time and I am so lucky to have such wonderful and crafty friends. Well, as soon as I saw this stamp I said "This is our crafty group!". From left to right you see Valerie, me, Rebecca and Janice. Yep. It is totally us. For example, the one for Janice suits her: she is wee in size but has a huge heart.
I decided to use this stamp of us on the current Stampotique challenge (Anything Goes). The layout is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch #185. Kraft paper was used as the card base and the ribbon edging so the card also fits into this week's Kraft Journal challenge. Foam tape was used to elevate the image (Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge). Ribbon and twine was used as shown (Craftin' Desert Divas Challenge).
The paper is from a new pad I picked up: My Mind's Eye "Happy Day". They named this pad correctly- it is so happy! That is why I picked the paper for this card because it describes our little crafty get togethers perfectly. Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles was used to cut our portrait. Both papers were dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (the pattern matched the paper on the left side of the card) and the Martha Stewart bubbles edge punch was used to make the Kraft paper edging. The hearts were punched out of scrap Happy Day paper and a gem matching each of us was placed a heart.
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to see my crafty friends. Also, if you like to see more happy cards made from MME paper, you should really check out Kristi's blog ( http://kristispapercreations.blogspot.ca/ ). She has been making awesome cards from the MME pad "Up and Away". Well worth the trip!
Have a good one!
