Yes. You now have that song in your head, but you can't really blame me, I mean really... it's rather unavoidable. Just sayin'. HOWEVER...there is a reason I put that song in your head... the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge this week ROCKS! I was totally inspired by it the second I saw the picture!
Totally cool, isn't it? I thought so. Which is why I jumped on getting my card made for it! I had SO. STINKING. MUCH. FUN. creating this card. I seriously love it! It started as a totally different idea and evolved into this way cool design that I just adore!
To create this one, I began with a white card base, layered it with a black mat, and then added a white mat stamped with envelope liner background from Hero Arts with London Fog ink from Tsukineko. I used my manual circle cutter (EK Curvy Cutter - I love that thing) to cut the black background circle and the white dial circle. I then punched the number/finger holes from the white circle before adhering it to the black. I added some fun Doodlebug stickers for the numbers.
To create the center, I used Sally the Cricut to die cut a fun medallion and then a circle. I layered those and stamped the fun phone from Vogue Abode in the center in a nice, bright red. I added a little silver cardtock finger stop to the dial to complete it. For the sentiment, I stamped the Hey There from Sentiment Sampler and then accented it with a cute little 'arrow' from Spookalicious. Yes, that was originally intended to be a Jack-O-Lantern facial feature, but I love the graphic design look of it! WAY FUN!
And that's my card for today! I love it and I hope you do, too!
