I learned this geometric distress technique from the fabulous card maker, Laura Bassen in a Craftsy Course she teaches. If you haven’t taken any of the Craftsy classes they are fabulous. I like to send my cards to Send a Smile 4 Kids, so I made a kid friendly geometric card.
I hope you’ll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our October “Geometric” Card Challenge! See you there!
The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration from Technique Junkies.
Today, I used both old and new Technique Junkies Stamps. The old stamp is the Snowflakes #S235, which is probably my most favorite TJ stamp for the holidays. It comes with 16 different snowflakes! The new stamp is the “All is Calm SDX079″ sentiment, which I stamped and silver embossed on black card stock spritzed with Dylusions White Linen spray to mimic snow.
During the holidays, one of the most found memories is listing to old records by Bing Crosby and Andy Williams. As I began creating this card I began to notice the embossed circles look a little like a record! Okay – you have to have imagination, but I sure see a record! Anyway, to create the record, I embossed several circle dies together and popped them up to give dimension. I then stamped the Snowflakes and added sequins. My background is from Bodacious Backgrounds CD using Watered Dylusions Technique and another new release background stamp called “Baubles”.
