Anyway, on to my card creation! I feel like this is a little copy - cat from the card I made last week because of the blue, but hey, the challenge was to use BLUE and this is a beautiful blue card stock from Amuse that goes really nicely with green! I needed a card to send with some goodies to my daughter in DC and thought the chair-ished from PTI would be nice for the miss you sentiment.
So a few details on this, that are probably not visible in the photo. First, the bottom of the chair has flocking on it. I thought a textured chair seat was a good idea. To do this, I just added glue to the seat and dusted the flocking powder on. Voila - a textured seat. Second, the rest of the chair is done in smooch. Smooch goes on just like nail polish - it has shimmer and color and is super cool. Third, the tufted areas of the chair have clear glue dotted on them. To do this, you take glue (crystal effects from stampin up works well) and apply a single drop to each spot. So, up close and personal, this card has a lot of subtle details. The ribbon is two-sided satin kiwi. The stamp image was done in soft suede. The rest should be self - explanatory. Thanks so much for looking.
