Paper Smooches SPARKS and Young Crafter's Unite

After making this card, I decided I wanted to make a whole set of cards with the Paper Smooches "thanks so much" sentiment. While cutting out the letters took a bit of patience, I loved the overall effect. So I stamped a bunch of "thanks" and have been cutting them out here and there during evenings spent with the hubs. I still don't have enough for a "set" but decided to play around with some of what I had.

Using the Paper Smooches SPARKS inspiration photo and the Young Crafter's Unite sketch (graphics below), I made this somewhat masculine card:


I don't know why I'm addicted to Glimmer Mist lately, but since I was basing this card on the previous, it seemed to go along. (Be prepared for more!)

Having recently organized them, I pulled out my long-neglected embossing folders for this project. My teensy supply of Sizzix folders have been overlooked the most and I felt this particular one suited my ideas.

I may be playing with this sketch again... Plenty one can do with it!

Thanks for peeking!
