Just because I've been doing challenges lately, I couldn't help but follow one of the sketch designs for my card. What drew me to the sketch was its simplicity.
You can see what I mean about its simplicity. There isn't much to it, but sometimes it's what you choose for your elements that makes or breaks the final result. I had already decided to use the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum with the small gold hearts. Along with that I planned to cut Gold Foil with the scalloped heart from the Hearts a Flutter framelits set. To dress up the heart, I planned on a white flower made using the Filter Paper and Spiral Flower Originals die. After assembling the flower, I edged the petals with Tombo glue and dipped the flower into the Gold Glitter. Even after as much loose glitter as possible was gone, the flower just sparkled like crazy. I loved it!
I also used Gold Foil for the long, skinny banner and then heat embossed a Whisper White banner with Gold Embossing powder. The assembled card turned out just as elegant and simple as I had hoped it would.
To see more cards made with this sketch, pop over to the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge.
I also entered the card into the Stampin' Royalty Challenge which had instructions for participants to "keep it simple".
