Happy Sunday everyone. I have a class to teach today so it’s a good thing I made this card yesterday. I purchased this Concord and 9th set a few weeks ago, but haven’t had to chance to use it. Diane called me and said – do you have the lucky set? I said – yes I do. She said – I need a sample! So that inspired me to make this I’m Lucky We’re Friends card. 🙂
I’m Lucky We’re Friends Card Recipe
Concord and 9th came out with this big fat chunky die set. I’ve been stalking Jennifer McGuire lately and I like the way she creates fun backgrounds and then uses die cut sentiments on those backgrounds. And since I must CASE what she does – I’ve been on the hunt for these sentiment dies. This Lucky set also had a coordinating stamp set – sswwueetttt! The die set comes with essentially 3 die cuts in the shape of lucky. There is the chunky, the outline of the chunky and the skinny lucky. You also get stars and a heart. The stamp set is jam packed with sentiments. I started with a black card base and a piece of black card stock sized 4 x 5 1/4. I’m not big on no layer cards especially since I was going to be cutting out the front of the card base which destabilized the paper. I cut the chunky lucky out of the card base and the card front. Stick It was used on the back of the colored card stock so that I could easily stick the sentiments down on the inside of the card. I layered a piece of white card stock on the inside of the card. On top of the white card stock, I lined up the chunky lucky so that you could see it through the front of the card. On top of that is the skinny chunky. I have extra luckies from the die cutting that I can use on another card. Doodlebug sequins were used to give the card some interest. On the black card front I stamped I’m and We’re Friends in Versamark Ink and heat embossed in Nuvo White embossing powder. The card front was lined up with the Chunky Lucky cut out and there you have the card.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Tune in tomorrow for another project.
Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
Luke 6: 41 – 42 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
