This fun “etch-a-sketch” card is just too cute. When I saw this card at Leadership, I knew I wanted to case it. I saw several versions of it using various stamps, but I love it with From The Herd. (side note the picture below is before I rounded the corners)
Stamp: From The Herd 138834 Paper: Real Red Cut & Ready Card Bases 136658, Smoky Slate 131302, Chipboard Scraps (from DSP packages), Window Sheets 114323 Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black 132708, VersaMark 102283 Misc: Framelits-Project Life Cards & Labels 135707; Punches- ¾ Circle Punch 119873, Corner Rounder 135346, Gold Embossing Powder 109129
The base starts with the Real Red card base with the center die cut using the smaller rectangle from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. The get the “Etch-a-Sketch” feel I gold embossed the birthday greeting From The Herd on top of the frame. Stamp using VersaMark and then use gold embossing powder & the heat gun. The “sketch” part is stamped on the Smokey Slate Card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the center of a 5 ¼ x 4 Smokey Slate CS. Make sure it is good and dry and then adhere a 5 ¼ x 4 Window sheet to the top of it, just use adhesive on the very edge all around it. You do NOT want your adhesive to show in your window. Put a dimensional in each corner of the TOP of your “sketch”. This makes it so you do not see them from the front when you tilt the card and you know you will want to, it is okay. WAIT…before you peel off the dimensional covers, lay the card down, and place the “sketch” layers inside the card centered. Then fold the front onto it to make sure it is where you want it. Then peel the covers off and slowly press the cover down a bit at a time. Finally, I punched four ¾ inch circles from chipboard/cardboard I had leftover from DSP packages. I put a dimensional between a set of them and then used Multi-Purpose Tombo Glue to the bottom corners of the card to give it the Etch-A-Sketch look.
