I Am Here for You

A few weeks ago, one of my favourite bloggers, Yana Smakula, posted about her favourite ‘formula’ for making cards. I highly recommend you take a look here. It’s a great post!

I followed her formula to make this card for the current Sketch for Crazy 4 Challenges. I’ve always loved sketch challenges; there are so many ways to look at them and everyone comes up with such unique ideas! I started with a wood grain cardstock (SSS) and then die cut a doily-ish shape with Majestic Circles (Spellbinders) using gold Mirri cardstock. Once I decided on the placement of the doily, I sponged on Harvest Gold ink (PTI) so it would tint the card in and around the focal point. Then I flicked on diluted Dusk ink (Altenew) on the card base with a paintbrush.

The rose (PTI) was stamped with the teal inks (Altenew) for a layered look. The leaves were stamped with green inks (PTI) and the branch (Casual Fridays) was stamped with green inks (Altenew) then all were die cut. The sentiment (Altenew) was embossed in white on black cardstock. Last I assembled the card and added some sequins (Lucy’s Little Things). In the second photo you can see how pretty the gold cardstock looks. It even looks like real metal!

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.
