Love When That Happens

Today’s sketch is from the Retro Sketches Challenge, and is linked to their blog for the most current challenge. When I saw this sketch I immediately knew which products I was going to use for this card!! I LOVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!

CTMH: Reel Life & Proplayer

Starting with a white cardstock base, I added a layer or Proplayer patterned paper, followed by a layer of Outdoor Denim Cardstock, and finally another layer of White Daisy Cardstock. All of Close To My Heart’s colored cardstock are white core, so to let that show I used the Sanding Kit around the edge of the Outdoor Denim Cardstock to create the white border. Now, Proplayer is not a new collection from the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book, but it is the first time I’ve played around with it. I bought a packet of this collection, because I love that it is BOY themed!!! I’m the mom of a boy, so boy paper is a treasure when I come across it!! I was saving it for my scrapbook pages, but it just fit my theme too well so I had to use it! I’m thankful that this is one of the four collections that will be transferred into the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book {2/1/2014}.

The hexagon stamp and the circular sentiment both come from the same stamp set, Reel Life. The hexagons are stamped first in Crystal Blue Exclusive Ink™ and then the edges are rolled in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink™. The circle for the sentiment can be cut 2 ways…you could use the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge/Artiste Cricut® Cartridge like I did or you could use the 1¼” Circle Punch that CTMH offers.

Adding a little 3D Foam Tape & some paper piercing and the card was done!! Although I am a mom of a boy, I do love my embellishments. It was difficult for me not to add some Sparkles or Aqua Dots but I resisted my urges and kept this card masculine!! It was tough, believe me!!

Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear what you think of this masculine card!!
