Stampin' Up! Simply Elegant Anniversary Card


Welcome to another HITBH! If you came from Jaimie's site, I'm glad you are continuing the hop. If you haven't then I hope you'll continue to hop using my links below. No matter what, I'm glad you're here. Today we have a sketch challenge and here is what I loosely created for it...
Please tell me you can see the similarity!

I used the Slim Card Dies, Simply Elegant Specialty DSP and Copper Foil to create my chevron card front. I actually remembered to use my adhesive sheets on the back of the papers so that I didn't get liquid glue all over the Copper Foil. I adhered the cut outs on a Smoky Slate Cardstock base. The sentiment mat is cut with the Ornate Frames Dies our of Copper Foil. The sentiment is from the Love & Happiness Stamp Set. I stamped it on a scrap of Basic White with my VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Copper Emboss Powder. Then I fussy cut it and adhered it with a minimum of liquid glue. I adhered the Copper Foil mat to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside...
You know why I sponged and stippled it, yes? Uh huh, smudge from ink on my hands! The age-old curse of stampers!! Well, it's done in the soon retiring Cinnamon Cider Ink, as are the stamped sentiments from the Love & Happiness Stamp Set.

The measurements are quite simple:
Card Base: 7 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 3 1/2" on the short side.
DSP: 3 3/8" x 8 3/8" and the same for the Basic White inner liner

I'm entering my card in the Krafty Chicks Challenge #605 Week 5 ATG.
