Welcome to my Creative Corner. I am currently a designer on three design teams for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love to spend my spare time designing cards and especially enjoy creating beautiful flowers out of card stock. I love sharing my work and tutorials with you and really appreciate you taking time to visit my blog. Hope I can inspire you to create something beautiful.
This card is for the Annabelle Bling Sketch Challenge. My friend Sue Walsh is on the design team and has asked for more people to participate in this challenge. I need a card to go with an apple cake I am giving to someone, so I used the pretty apple stamp from the JustRite "Autumn Blessings" stamp set. To create the frame I used a stamp from the JustRite "Victorian Nested Frames & Borders" set. The apple stamp comes in an oval set, but I like to trim around my stamps so it fit perfectly in the Nested Frame. The design was colored with colored pencils and OMS. It was matted with burgundy card stock and placed on the Basic Grey design paper. A black border was created with a Martha Stewart punch.
I used just one of the words from another one of the stamps in the JustRite "Autumn Blessings". The stamp says "Enjoy the Days of Autumn" but I only wanted the "Enjoy" so cut it out and attached it to my design. I hope they enjoy the apple cake.
For the bling on my card I used black rhinestones. A bow was added to complete the card. All the products used for this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
