Hi everyone! Thank you for all your comments on my Gallery Idol card. It has meant so much to me!
Woo hoo! It's Friday, and time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This week's challenge is:
Create a CAS project with panels or elements that extend past the edge of the project.
I started making one card, and it looked terrible (beyond terrible--more like heinous). On to plan B, which was this card:
When I was younger, I remembered hearing good news and getting on the phone to share the news with my friends. I suppose it's the same now, except my phone is a little different. We haven't had a land line in several years, and I was surprised my 7-year-old knew what the phone on the card was (she said she saw one on The Brady Bunch). ha ha
I started by stamping the sentiment from the CAS-ual Friday Stamps Ka-Boom set. The inside was colored with an Inktense pencil and kept it simple. I sewed across the panel with pink thread.
Next, I die-cut the Ring Me die in some new American Crafts paper and gold cardstock. For the center heart, I painted and inked a wood veneer heart. Here's a close-up:
The cord was an issue. I used some Stiffen Stuff on gold cord I wrapped around a pencil, and heated it with my heat gun. In retrospect, I should have used a dowel and heated the cord on a low heat in the oven.
The receiver does come off the phone, too. It's a fun interactive element!
If you want to play along, the winner of this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge will win some CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!
You can link up your creations HERE. I hope you join in!
