SKETCH 41: SENTIMENTS!
Welcome to another Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge! Today we are challenging you to use those fabulous sentiment stamps, stickers, etc. that you have in your collection! Cards featuring only a sentiment image, or even a prominent sentiment with another picture image have been very on trend over the past couple of years, so this card will certainly be fun and trendy! :)
OK, so can someone help me with taking pictures of this textured cardstock? I took a GAZILLION (really, I counted) pictures of this card, and none of them are as clear as the card actually looks! Any tips for photographing textured cardstock?
Anyway... The base of this 3.5" x 7.5" card is textured Soft Suede cardstock from SU. I layered on a piece of Basic Grey Nook and Pantry and punched a border with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, also from SU. The corners were also rounded. CHECK OUT THAT RIBBON! :) It's one of our new ribbons at Limelight, the Yellow Elastic/Ruffle Plaid Ribbon. The three stickers on the bottom right are actually from the Nook and Pantry Pops, 3D layered, glittered stickers. Gorgeous! I sponged them with Chocolate Chip ink to "rough 'em up" a little. The sentiment, naturally, is from the Unity Store Kit of the Month, Life is Fabulous. This is such a fresh stamp set with springy images that I just love! It's fun, when you are getting tired of the cold, to see warm-weather and Eastery things. Like the jelly beans on grocery store shelves. And the birdies in this stamp set. ;)
