Big Love for Big Card

2:17 PM Posted In , , , , Edit This 6 Comments »

For years, I've been a big fan of Faith's over at Mark's Finest Papers. She is the queen of all borders polka dotted and a fabulous artist/paper crafter/stamper! So I decided I was going to try to copy Faith a little (imitation really IS the sincerest form of flattery, right??) because I saw a card she made that I LOVED! So, here is my shameless attempt at copying one of my stamping heroes, Faith!

The images are from Sweet'n Sassy Stamps; this is the first time I've used their products. WOW, do they ever stamp nicely! Thank you Sweet n Sassy for some top quality products!!

The paper is from The Paper Temptress and the ribbon and embellishments are from a new favorite company of mine called Scrappin Deals and Steals. The teal theme is part of an upcoming bundle of products that will be available on Friday July 9th. All of the bundles on this site are available for one day only, so don't miss out on some of the fantastic deals over there--especially this upcoming one!

I've included several photos of this card because it's fun on both the inside and outside. Two photos of the inside are included because I used my new Scor-Buddy to make the border score lines. The second photo of the inside of the card is lightened up a bit to help show off those score lines. It sure helped when I was making all of those white dots! I used a technique from Technique Junkies to add some interest to the white~it's called "Wisped Frames".

Thanks for looking at this big post about my big love for my big card! I'm sure glad you stopped by today!
