You Made My Day Card & FMS587

Who doesn’t love clean and simple cards?! My card today was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #587, LITERALLY! LOL! I took the Jen’s sketch and colors to heart to create my card. I love using challenge inspirations to get my creativity process going when making a card. Be sure to check out Freshly Made Sketches Challenge blog!

Putting It All Together

I punched out some circles from scrap paper that measured 5-1/4″ x 4″. The circle sizes are 2-1/2″, 2″, and 1-1/4″. I used them as templates over my Basic White panel. Using the larger of the 2 sizes of the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes gave plenty of coverage. This is my second time using the blending brushes. There is a bit of a learning curve, but practice makes perfect! I used ink pads Melon Mambo, Pretty Peacock and Smoky Slate for my circles.

Giving some texture to this card gives it some dimension. I used Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder (retired but you can use an embossing folder with any texture) on the card panel and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on Basic White card base. I stamped the sentiment “YOU MADE MY DAY” in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Basic White cardstock and used Sending Dies (coordinates with Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set) for the sentiment label. The sentiment is popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I thought about putting some type of embellishment onto my card but then I really like it just the way it is! What do you think about my Clean and Simple (CAS) card?

  1. I love that you used the FMS colors on this too. What a great way to highlight the texture. So glad you joined us this week at FMS!

    1. I wanted to participate in this challenge and was short on time to do so. The more I looked at your sketch, I thought why not CASE it! LOL! In hind sight, I wish I had embossed the sentiment. Thank you so much for your SWEET comments Jen!

    This is a perfect take on the sketch! How clever! The texture in the background adds so much interest. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    1. Thanks Karren, you’re too SWEET! I wish you could see my card in person. It truly turned out better than I expected! When I assemble another card like it, I’ll be sure to emboss the sentiment as well for even more texture. 🙂
