Anniversaries for Paper Smooches and Retrosketches
Paper Smooches is celebrating its 3rd year! Happy Birthday - I love you guys! I wish you many more - your stamps are so cute and always make me smile! Its also retrosketches challenge #100 - that is one good reason to celebrate - happy 100st challenge!!!! I hope for many more! Of course I have to play.......And the theme at Creative Friday is Kraft - so here we go:
I made that card for a sweet little girl in Germany - the daughter of one of our former Au Pairs. She just send me a picture she made and this needs to be rewarded. I think she is going to like this card!
Materials: Paper Smooches - Chubby Chums and Sentiment sampler, Washi Tape, Twine from the Twinery, self made enamel dots.
Do you know you can make enamel dots yourself? I learned that on the Internet....from somebody I can't remember.... You take a bottle of white enamel accents and make little (or large) dots on a sheet of acetate, a craft sheet or I just used one of the plastic sleeves the clear stamps come in. Let them dry and color them with Copics or whatever marker you have. Sharpies work well too. Its a lot cheaper and you can make them the size you want. They are a little flatter than the real thing, but for mailing cards that is an advantage. I glue them on with glossy accents.
I am also linking this card with Paper Smooches - anything goes
Simon Says Wednesday challenge - anything goes with twine or string
