JustRite 062 and CR84FN42 and Thanks!



Hello folks!  Although I prepared this card according to the requirements for two challenges (JustRite 062--give thanks;  and CR84FN42---pink, black, and neutral), my main reason for making this card was to give thanks to Spellbinders for sending me this fabulous set of Edgeabilities dies (Classic Triple Scallop) which I won in a random drawing during their Get The Knowledge event with guest blogger Becca Feeken.  Woo-hoo!  I just feel SO lucky!




I know this photo is a little dark but it was the only way I could get the glitter to show up.

I used the new Edgeabilities dies to cut the border and the triple scallop in the black card stock, then placed a strip of SU Very Vanilla card stock behind just the scallops.  The black card stock was then stamped with JustRite's oval label design from Vintage Oval Labels with black craft ink, then clear embossed.  Inside the embossed design I painted bleach with a very fine paintbrush, which turned the black to a cream color.  Then I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen to add glitter to the bleached areas as well as the scallops.  The black card stock was mounted on a sheet of K & Co pink patterned paper, on a Very Vanilla card base.  The same patterned paper was adhered to card stock then cut with two dies from Spellbinders' Labels Six set, then mounted on pop dots.  The sentiment, from JustRite's Fancy Frames set, was stamped on Very Vanilla, die cut with a Petite Ovals Small die, and mounted on pop dots.  Finally, a bow in cream seam binding was added.

Now, the terms of the JustRite challenge are that the card must be sent to the intended recipient, so my plan is to mail this to the Spellbinders home offices in Phoenix to thank them for their generosity.

Hope you enjoyed it--have a nice day!
