The attendees at my February Card Club classes got to make this fun "sneaker" card, copying a card I saw on a demonstrator Facebook page:
Epic Celebrrations is a FREE Sale-a-Bration offering, and has such cute images--sneakers, headphones and an electric guitar, along with two perfect phrases. This set is for the young, and the young-at-heart and we had a great time getting creative with our sneakers.
The card base is Thick Whisper White. Then comes a layer of Whisper White, on which we stamped the dots and the sentiment (Bermuda Bay and Tuxedo Black inks) and wrapped a band of ribbon around the bottom.
The sneakers were stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, and then colored with Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends. BUT...if someone wanted to make a more girlie card, I also had Calypso Coral Blends and a pink ribbon.
I knew one of those in attendance, an extremely creative and free-spirited young woman, would want to mix and match the colors, and I was right. Her example became one for others to copy, as she created blue and pink camouflage sneakers! So cute!
Out sneakers were punched with a circle punch, layered over a scalloped circle of Silver Glimmer paper and adhered with Dimensionals.
Simple and cute, and perfect for sending to an awesome friend!
Stampin' Blends, new alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! are available now:
