Guest Designer

I am the guest designer at MySheri Crafts today.  What a nice surprise!  I have made a Center Step Card, one of the fancy folds that I so enjoy.  

Unfortunately, we have gray, cloudy skies today, and since this is already a dark house it was hard to get great photos.  Hope you can see well enough.  The sentiment doesn't show well, I'm sorry.   I am not sure where it or the sand dollar came from, but the rest of the shells are from Creative Pointe.  I was amazed at how well they cut!

 I used Core d'nations Cardmakers Cardstock in Pearl for everything except my sentiment.  It has a lovely pearly sheen to it and I discovered that not only does it cut easily but it also prints well.  My card base was cut from a piece that I printed first in ocean looking pattern.  All I also used a variety of other papers for the shells, mixing for color and texture.

I don't remember where I got the sketch of the ship, but I used my Cameo and sketch pens to draw it...  I do not draw anything (except a couple of cartoons that I've perfected for my classrom, wows the kids!).

Thanks for looking, and thanks to My Sheri Crafts for this opportunity.  I agonized over this card, but had lots of fun with it once I finally decided what to do!

Have a Great Summer Day!
