The stamp is from the Film Strip Sentiments from Whimsy Stamps that I've had for a little while. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I've also used some black distress ink for the edges of the papers.
This card kind of evolved during the making process, and it turned out quite different from what I had in mind originally.
I usually decorate the inside of my card as well, but I seldom take a picture of it. I've done it this time, as I wanted to share my tip with you. Card making can be quite an expensive hobby, so I try and make the most of my papers. For this card, the first layer is made with the floral paper. I cut out a square from the middle - this square I keep for the inside of my card. From the second layer I cut out a circle. It's a great way to try and be economic, avoid the card being too heavy and at the same time make the inside of your card!
I love to look at all the different blogs out there to get inspiration for my cards. For this card I had the Inkspirational sketch in mind. I also wanted to make a card with layers + I love to add some some stitching around the edges + I needed to make a birthday card. So this card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #4 Sketch
2) Top Tip Tuesday - #94 Lavishly Luscious Layers
3) Try It On Tuesday - Let's Get Stitchy Real Or Faux
4) ABC Challenges - Birthday Cards
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
