Love Story Card

I’ve been sick for so long, all of December (I’m still not better), I feel like a stranger to this blog. Thanks to all of you who are still here with me!

I used this week’s Fusion Challenge which happens to be their Anniversary! Congrats on a great year to Fusion! I was inspired by so much from this photo. I’d actually already pinned it from Maggie Holmes’ blog. It was a birthday party backdrop for one of her deliciously adorable daughters.

First Birthday

I decided to use the gold frame, banner, sticks with little flags on them and the overall pinkness as my inspiration. I really wanted to add some flowers and ribbon but decided to leave it as is. anything I envisioned just overwhelmed the design and left it too off balance. BTW, it is a rectangle card. The diagonal lines of the gold-painted sticks make it look like the top is wider than the bottom but it’s an optical illusion. It looks better IRL.

To make the frame, I deliberately only lightly embossed the shimmery gold cardstock frame. I didn’t want the paper to crack nor warp the thin frame too much. It worked beautifully. The sticks were painted with a gold paint pen.

I’m entering this in the Card Concept Challenge #26. And another Happy Anniversary to the CCC! Yeah, I am so glad I found you. This is my first time even seeing this challenge!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
