Clean and Simple Class Day #1


Hey everybody,

A quick post before I take my daughter to the dentist.
I signed up for the Clean and Simple Online Class #2 and played along day #1 using one of their sketches.



Here is my card,
Pin It  

Gold is trendy right now. I realised I have brushed gold cardstock from Stampin' Up! in my stash and I had forgotton about it. So I opened the pack, die cut some chevrons (from MFT) and paired with some shades of coral and cream chevrons. I layered  and glued them to a 4' x51/4' card panel. Die cut the circle, Stamped the sentiment from Wplus9 Cupid's Arrow stamp set. I also layered the banner strip by stamping in scrap card stock  then fussy cut out and adhere using foam squares. The wood veneer arrow is from Studio Calico Popcorn Add-On Kit which is inked with black ink.

Here is a closeup picture of the wood veneer arrow and layered banner in the sentiment.


Now I am off to the dentist. Then I will comeback and play another sketch and use Amber's technique.

Thanks for visiting and see you soon:)

Ta!

I'm in this class, too! Love this card. Brilliant idea to use die cut chevrons as a base. See you tomorrow in class.

Your gold, coral and cream combination is gorgeous, Gayatri! I also love the interest added by the raised banner.
I hope everything goes well with your girl's dentist appointment. I'm sure she's way braver than me!
See you today in class ;)
