Hi Everyone and welcome to another Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. I’m Susan and my prompt for today is Sentiments Only. I can pretty much guarantee that the first thing I decide on when making a card is the image I’m going to use which is why I wanted to challenge myself and all of you, because I think most people are like this, is to only use sentiments on their projects.
I started by going through my stamp stash and pulling out sets with sentiments. I quickly noticed I had a group that would work together so that’s what I used. I started with the hello because I knew I was going to color that one in and make it a focus. Then I added stamps around that one keeping it in somewhat of a square – the top one is poking out a little bit but that’s okay with me.
I used a red Tombow marker to color in the hello and to stamp the love in I love you and the rest I kept black & white. I used a fine tip black pen and a ruler to add the lines. Next I used the large die from the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Set to cut the panel then layered it onto a piece of black card stock tearing one side for some texture.
I layered the panel onto a piece of striped paper from MFT’s Black & White Stripes paper pack then added that to a white card base.
I think this would be a great style of card for masculine cards. Switch up the sentiments for birthday, retirement, father’s day – whatever the reason would work.
So now it’s your turn. Have a hunt through your stamps and (hunting would be a good theme for a masculine card too) have a go at Sentiments Only and please share your card in the SNS Facebook Group for a chance to win a Gift Certificate to the SNS Shop.
and thanks so much for visiting!
