Mid May 2013 – Card For Challenges

Welcome to any new visitors and Thank You to any returning visitors for popping over once again to have a look at my blog and also thank you to everybody who’s left comments on my previous blog posts.
(Please don’t think that you have to read every word I’ve written –
– Unless you want to know what I used and how I made a card you don’t actually have to read all the information I provide in the numbered details under each card set, you can just click the thumbnail images to view each card at a larger size, and then click “Back” and scroll down to the next section.

With so many things that make me smile I found it difficult to come up with a card on the theme “Big Smiles” for a challenge in a group I belong to on FB.  Then I got tempted and reached for the chocolate – you can see the result below –



(Clicking on the text links below each set of images takes you to the pages where you can see some of what I used to make the cards.)

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:


1Fun Challenge 5 - Smile - card03

  1. Rupert Banner by Janette Padley and Delicious Chocolates by Marie Wolman (I chose the digi-stamp first for this project and took it into one of my graphics packages to re-size it.  I also took in various elements from the chocolate digital kit.  I re-sized, moved around and layered up until I was happy with my layout for a topper of around 7″ square.  The topper was then printed out onto  300gsm Super Smooth white cardstock before I coloured in the digi, and did a bit of shading around the edge of the chocolate elements using my ProMarkers.  The colours I used were: Sandstone, Tan, March Hare.  I then cut out the topper, leaving a small border of around 3mm of the white card-stock as a faux layer before sticking to the front of an 8″ square, cream, Crafty Bob card using finger-lift tape.  I finished off by going over the running chocolate on the top left chocolate lolly with a Clear Glaze Sakura pen and over the sprinkles on the cupcake with a gold glitter gel pen.)
