For The Love Birds

Welcome to My Time Made Easy's 54th sketch!  My how the time flies!  I've been with the design team for almost a year now.  I think I came in on the 3rd or 4th sketch and I've enjoyed each one.

This week is a CAS card.  CAS = Clean And Simple and are usually one-layered cards.  I love my layers so this was a bit of a stretch for me.  I remembered I had a fun embossing folder that was begging me to use so I ran it through my Big Shot after I cut my card shape which is a strip of card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 11.  AFter I used the embossing folder I scored it on the narrow side and folded it in half so that the card opens from the bottom instead of the side. 

I then stamped the birdhouse, sentiment and love birds from MTME's acrylic set Singing Silhouette.  I ordered this set awhile back knowing that I would want to use it with shiny inks like I did with today's card.  This set is also available in a digi set.  Below is a close-up of the stamped image.  

Here's the card in a different light to show more of the embossed area and more of the shiny inked image.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate each and every visit and comment - they make my day!  Please stop on by My Time Made Easy's blog and check out the other cards that the design team have made for you today.  We would love it if you would play along!

what's in it:
MTME acrylic stamp set: Singing Silhouette
QuicKutz "frame" embossing folder
1/4 inch pink ribbon
Brilliance pearlescent inks: sky blue, orchid & lavender

I like the CAS look and that embossing folder is gorgeous. The shiny ink is different and compliments the stamp.
