Super Bowl Sunday
Yes it is super bowl Sunday - but no Packers - but my oldest has long been a 49ers fan - so for her I will cheer for them.
Today's card is for the weekly sketch on Stars and Stamps, Operation Write Home's Card Blog. I chose to add more layers to the card. I grounded every layer with black so it would pop a little more. It really does make a difference. Try it on your card someday. I learned this little trick from our fearless leader Sandy.
My little tip for you today - when you fussy cut out an image or sentiment like I did - take a black marker and run around the edge of the paper. This way the edge of your cut out is black and no white shows - it gives it more of a finished look. I also did that with my buttons - but just used a red marker on them. Another hint for today - this is the Martha Stewart button punch - it embosses the button also - but I layered two of them together to give each button a little more depth and sturdiness.
The paper is from Authentique - great double sided paper. The sentiment is a Hero Arts sentiment I used very often on my OWH cards. I love the shape of the sentiment and it works for both masculine and feminine cards.
Well I am off to get some groceries so I can eat this week. We have snow in our forecast off and on all week - I do hate to have to get up in the morning and clean everything before I head to work. Everyone enjoy your day.
