You're the Best

I'm back again with another card for Camp Create!  This time I combined it with the sketch at Just Add Ink and came up with this card:

I bought a Mini Minc machine a couple of months ago, but hadn't used it much mainly due to not having a toner printer.  In the end, I bought the cheapest toner printer I could find and my first job was to print off a page of black toner.  From there I die-cut the "because" word and then foiled it using gold foil.  So much easier than trying to use a toner pen!

For the rest of the card, I die-cut the Stitched Dot Circles onto a white card base and stamped the rest of the sentiment in black.  I stamped and Copic-colored a heart from Lucky and adhered that to the card front after painting it with clear Wink of Stella.  Finally I added the foiled sentiment.  A very CAS version of the sketch :)

Thanks for visiting.

Clunk! That's the sound of my chin hitting my desk :) This is such a GORGEOUS CAS take on the sketch, and perfect for the inlaid die cutting technique, Karren! The contrast of the gold foil on your sentiment with the bold red heart is so striking, and really beautiful! Looks like a winning card to me!!!
I'm trying to resist buying a Minc and toner printer, but you're not making it easy for me!

What's a mini-mac? You have so many toys that are foreign to me and my bubble of SU stuff! I'm always envious of the stuff you must have at hand in your craft room. Lovely are clean and that gold sentiment is just fab!

I love how you've been able to capture the sketch so simply yet with such wow, Karren. The foil gives such a lovely look too. Glad you could play with us at Just Add Ink.

Wow, Karren! I LOVE this (hmmmm think I repeat myself on most of your creations lol). Such a simple card, with all that gorgeous white space, and yet it fits the JAI sketch perfectly. I love the touch of gold and red. And thanks for 'introducing' me to a Minc - just figuring out whether or not I need one now. x

Wow, this is stunning Karren! Your foiled and word and sweet heart are so striking amongst the lovely white space. Yes, a Minc sounds dangerously good to me too :-) Thanks for sharing with us again at Just Add Ink :-)
