Oh my goodness, I've been waiting to spill the beans about this for awhile now, and I'm so excited today is the day......I'm now part of the amazing CAS-ual Fridays Design Team!!! See? Told ya it was awesome news!
And now I have a card to share (of course)!
I die cut the oval links with the Linked Fri-Dies from a 4 x 5.25" panel of black cardstock and set the links aside for another use (I just wanted to use the negative space the links created for the black cardstock piece). I die cut the links again from white cardstock so I could do some die cut inlay once the rest of the panel was completed. I die cut the word ' Friend' using the Friend Fri-Die and stamped the rest of the sentiment (from the Girlfriend stamp set) in Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I flipped the panel over and inlaid the white link pieces and then added a piece of acetate over the top. Next came some foam tape (a LOT of foam tape!!!) and some pink and turquoise microbeads to fill in the sentiment. To keep the microbeads in place, I adhered a piece of white cardstock and then flipped my panel upright again. I mounted the panel onto the cardbase and added some color to my links by inlaying some more negative pieces from the Linked Fri-Dies in turquoise and pink. That finishes off the card! Sounds a little complicated, but really it was just a lot of layering.
So a couple more things before I end this post - be sure to leave comments on the blogs of the new Girl Fridays as they are introduced....there's a $50 gift certificate up for grabs to a lucky commenter! Also, if you'd like to stop by the CAS-ual Fridays store to do some shopping, I have a coupon code for you! How awesome is that? The code will also be on my blog sidebar - you can use it whenever you feel a shopping trip coming on! ;)
Thanks for sharing in my excitement today. I'll see you again soon with some more crafty goodness!
