smARTworks - Long Card under Same Sky

You must go to Susan's blog or the smARTwork's catty and see the latest releases! Wow, there is so much goodness!! I can't wait to get my hands on those owls, some of that new Christmas goodness, and all that Fun Stuff!!! How is a girl to pick!!?? (see pages 179 - 189 for new releases!!) Okay, on to my card for the day using older smART rubber. Sometimes it is nice to create a card that is a different size than the typical A2 size. This card is created to fit a business or legal size envelope. I started out stamping these awesome leaf images from smARTworks with Chocolate Chip ink onto some designer paper that had lots of greens and oranges on it (by K&Co. - an onld 8x8 pad). Then, I cut them out and layered them onto these blue circles and brown die cuts. I drew the square box around the dies and added the sentiment. Inside is the rest of the sentiment which reads "but we don't all have the same horizon" Overall, a simple card but I think it is very dramatic - I love the color combo! Supplies: Stamps - FL - 26 Leaves #4, WD 141 Horizon (both smARTworks); Ink - Chocolate Chip (SU!); Paper - Whisper White, Chocolate Chips (SU!), blue from scrap bin, green from scrap bin (but I remember it is K&Co.); Other- Chocolate Chip marker, ruler, 1 1/4" circle punch, Labels 1 Die (Spellbinders). I hope you have a great day! Donelda

Stunning in so many ways, Donelda! Of course I love the CAS layout, but the sketch itself is so fun as is the elegant color combo and those realistic leaves, too. Awesome card!!

lotsa drama here. the shape is part of that, but also the hand-drawn box & the sentiment.
