Saturday is my good friend, Jen's birthday! Tonight at our weekly craft night, Suzanne and I surprised her with a cake, and of course crafty presents! A corner chomper and a mini score pal are now part of her crafty stash (both tools she admired of ours at our weekly "craft-a-poolazas"). And of course she had to have a card. As you know from an earlier post, she loves white card bases, so that's what I started with.
This card is for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge which is to make a retro themed card.
Well, I for some reason thought of Andy Warhol and his Campbell's soup cans. So I went online searching for this pic as my inspiration for the card:
It is hard to tell, but I stamped the chair from "Vogue Abode" in different Encore ink colors (I didn't have the right embossing powder or I would have done that since the plain SU inks were not standing out enough on the colored cardstock).
I used "Alphadot" to create the "MOD" sentiment. The wishes...I think that one was from "Party Possee". After writing mod, though, I realized that it looks a lot like M.O.D. which is what we use at work for Manager On Duty...but since Jen is a teacher, and I don't think has MOD shifts, she'll see it as "mod" ;)
The washi tape is from Target.
I've been very disappointed in my pics lately. I'm really considering buying a photo light box. Any advice? I need something that I can leave out in my craft room and since I can't close the door (there is no door) I need it to look nice enough to leave out. I know some people make theirs? I have seen that they cost about $30 on Amazon. Anyway, I'm ready to have nicer pics. I guess I need to stop using my iPhone to take them too...I just love the feature where you can email right from your phone to your blog!
Thanks for stopping by :)
