I was so inspired by THIS amazing card by fellow consultant Wendy Coffman, that I just had to get my butt moving and make one similar, but with a whole new spin on the sentiment!
I have always been intrigued by the way the letters H and I fall next to each other in the alphabet...
I am linking this version of my card up with the My Creative Time Black and White Challenge.
The sentiment is ABSOLUTELY the focus of this card. I stamped it using the Close to My Heart Framework Alphabet My Acrylix set in White Daisy Pigment Ink on Black CS. I adore this new alphabet that mimics the chalkboard look perfectly. It also coordinates with our new M size stamps as well. The polka-dot trim at the top and bottom is made from a zip strip in the For Always Paper Packet. Then, whammo, this sparkly glitter button from the Mini Medley Accents Black Collection catches your eye!
To add some interest inside, I stamped the main sentiment again in black for the opposite effect...
Now to re-focus on that sparkly "HI" sentitment. Did you think we finally had white glitter paper from CTMH? NOPE! Not yet anyway, lol. I tried to choose between chalking it in and filling it with glitter, and settled for BOTH! I used my White Chalk Marker to color in my Silver Glitter Paper! :) I wanted to stay true to the black and white challenge, so this option was both innovative, sparkly, AND allowed! ;)
|FYI--it is hard to take a pic of yourself coloring! ;)|
OK, so just for fun, I used some leftover cuts and my Peachy Keen faces to transform my card into a FANTASTIC welcome card to give my daughter's teacher when we visit her classroom tomorrow night. What do you think?
I think it will be a hit! :) THIS version of my card is linking up with the the Heart 2 Heart Sentimant-ally Yours Challenge for August. It was my DT's week off, but I could not resist playing along!
