Just Breathe

Good morning everyone - Jennifer here to share one more card with you before the month ends. Remember that today is the last day to enter our April Birthday Card challenge!

Things are pretty crazy these days at our little caffeinated house; we're moving! Bigger house with bright windows and a larger craft room for this caffeinated mama, but with all of that comes packing, listing our house, paperwork abound, and on top of all that I suddenly have a little boy starting kindergarten this fall. Say what?!? So as I was pawing through my stamps for a sentiment, the little 'Breathe' popped out at me again - a much needed reminder these days!

Oh yes, the metallics came out! I created a little heart mask with a paper punch and just some scrap paper and temporarily adhered it to some soft navy cardstock. Then I went to town stamping the gorgeous Line Leaf 2 stamp with VersaMark ink all over the card panel (cut to 4"x5.25") and then dusting on three different colors of Perfect Pearls. Oh. Wow. I then lifted the heart mask and heat embossed the 'Breathe' sentiment in gold to finish it off. Some Fun Foam behind the panel for height and attachment to the matching A2 card base and I was done.

Which is when I was reminded how hard it was to photograph metallics...
