Today, my card is for the Muse Challenge #142 and the Muse card was provided by the talented Anita Bowden of Neet & Crafty.
This is her fabulous card
I loved the aqua shade she used and the general layout. Everything, from the sweet little tag, the hearts, the leaves to the lines she embossed as a border for her main focal point. I loved it all!
This is my take on her card.
First, I cut the top panel a quarter of an inch smaller than my card base, then I cut a strip of patterned paper from my stash to go across the front of the card where Anita did that gorgeous stamping. Once adhered, I ran across the back with my bone folder to create the border lines.
Next, I made two little mini tags by just cutting them by hand - I don't have a tag die that small - then I stamped the greeting on the white tag and sponged the edges of both tags with the same ink as the sentiment.
Then I used some die-cut leaves from my stash to represent Anita's leaf stamping. After that, I took my ink pad and went directly to paper for the matching hearts and used my Martha Stewart punch to punch them out. I used foam pads for dimension and layered everything up - except the leaves, which were adhered flat.
Finally, I mounted the whole panel to my base card and added some WOS to the leaves and hearts.
Thank you for your visit today and for any comments, you are all very much appreciated! Have a great evening! Hazel xx
