Thinking of You

Good Morning Everyone!

With Hurricane Sandy approaching, I hope everyone is home and safe.  They say it is going to be pretty bad, let's hope they are wrong!

Today I'd like to share a card I made with a new product I found at Joann's.  I had coupons so I went to Joann's on Saturday to see if they had anything interesting.  The craft section at the Joann's where I live is small, so I shop more often at Michael's and AC Moore.  I knew they had the DCWV adhesive backed fabric paper which I have had my eye on for a while, but I wanted to see what else they had.  Well, I came across a new line from David Tutera.  He is a famous Wedding Planner/Coordinator and he has a show on WE TV.  He has this line of cards, border strips and die cut embellishments.  I decided to give two of these items a try so I picked up a pack of the Layers and a pack of Border Strips.  The Layers say they are for use on an A2 or A6 card and the Border Strips say they are for an A7 card.  Today I'll be focusing on the Layers. They come 12 in a package.  The package I chose was half craft and half white card stock. Half are die cuts and half are 5 1/4 X 4 inch solid layers with an embossed pattern. For this card I chose to use one of the die cuts and change it up a bit.  There was a grid pattern in the center which I removed and replaced with a piece of black card stock.  And I decided to color it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Crimson. I had purchased the Glimmer Mist a long time ago, but had never used it.  It's hard to see, but if you look at the second picture closely, you can see the pretty sheen the glimmer mist gives.  I'm definitely going to try some more colors in the future. 

My base card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 cut from black cardstock.  My next layer is 4 X 5 1/4 cut from white card stock.  For my sentiment I used a CTMH stamp and CTMH White Daisy ink.  I added 4 Queen and Company black pearls and my card was complete.  I had fun trying out some new products, and I hope to share a project using the David Tutera border strips sometime soon.  Till then, thanks for stopping by and please stay safe.
