Happy World Card Making Day!

20151003_155607I was so honored when Alice Ledezma, (YT: VintageGal18) the owner of HappyCreating, asked me to be a designer for her Etsy store.  Then when I received the American Crafts Shimelle stamp set that had a travel and photography theme, I thought what are the odds?! My niece is going to go study abroad and her favorite hobby is photography! I also used camera stamps from a Heidi Swapp stamp set (sorry I don’t know the name) and a Snap Studio stamp set called “Snapshots.” I knew I had to make a card for her with this set, and what better day to do that but on World Card Making Day?!

Then after being brainwashed all week with amazing gold themed cards by Sandy Allnock, I knew I had to use the heat tool and Ranger Queen’s Gold embossing powder that my niece had gifted me last Christmas! Although the materials I used were different, I was inspired by the gold framing and making of gold papers in Sandy’s Day 3 class, when I made the sides gold edged and the gold camera embossed background paper for this card.  I used a die from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Die Set to cut out the centerpiece globe. I really like the clean, monochromatic but luxe look of this card, and given my niece’s sophisticated aesthetic, I am hopeful she will like it too. 🙂

The following is a process video of creating this card:
