Another Card Challenge Entry

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

Hi again,

I had a really busy September so didn’t do too much crafting.  Sunday I got the new Sweet Sunday Sketch and decided to create a birthday card for a friend.   Below you’ll find a list of products used for this card.  If you don’t own a Silhouette  then you may not know that you can upload and print out backgrounds for scrapbooking layouts or cards or just about anything else you like to craft with paper.

This printed cardstock is a sample of one of their backgrounds.  It has a Paris look to it and I loved the pastel sort of old look to it.  The text is also files from my Silhouette library of images, text, fonts and so much more!  By the way if you do own one or are thinking of buying one, you need to hop over to a blog site called Silhouette School.  There you will find everything you ever wanted to know or learn about the wonderful world of Silhouette!  Plus you can buy an instructional book download that is about $30 and worth every penny.  I wish it had been available when I first purchased my machine.  Really, I would be surprised if you have any questions that the answer to is not in that book.

I had just finished a Paris themed birthday card for my daughter and had so much fun with it I decided to stay with that theme for this weeks challenge card.  I’ll post the one I made for my daughter tomorrow.  It’s a pop up of a Paris store!

Products Used:

Elizabeth Craft Designs: Paris Edges Die set

Black cardstock:  Cor’dinations 65# smooth texture

Background: white cardstock printed with a Silhouette background file

I have been crafting with paper for several yrs. now. I am a single mother of four grown children (2 boys, 2 girls) and a grandmother of 6 (5 girls and 1 boy). I still work as a hairdresser part time at a beautiful retirement community in San Ramon, CA My passions are: gardening, sewing and crafting with paper while watching my favorite TV shows. I have an amazing dog named Shelby who I just can't imagine life without. I hope, with this blog, that I will inspire, teach, prevent costly mistakes in your journey and well, just have a lot of fun creating.
