You Always Amaze Me!

Hi, Candice with you today.  I hope you have all settled back into the school routine, I know it has been really quiet in my home lately!

Today I am sharing a card that could brighten anyone's day!

I created this special card for a new, and AMAZING crafty friend, oneallgirlstudio, who wanted to send each other some love.  If you haven't tried reaching out to crafty friends, try it and lets send some love to each other!

I started my slimline card with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.
-I first created the background using the diamond stencil with fired brick, riped persimmon, carved pumpkin, dried marigold & scattered straw oxide inks.
-I made the frames by die cutting multiples and layering to give depth.

-Next, I stamped the cacti, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out. 
-For the small sentiment, I heat embossed in white on a stitched banner.  I then stamped the large you in black and cut out.

This was my first time using two completely different colors with my copic markers on the tips of the cacti.  I love the results and will be brave and try it on other images again!  Give it a try and share with us your results on Create a Smile IG!
