It's less than a week away from my vacation and honestly, that's the only thing that's on my mind. Packing, cleaning, planning out iterinaries has been all too fun, and honestly, it's hard to get down to crafting right now. I touch and feel the papers, but all I can do is to think about how I'm going to be sitting underneath a bright warm sun next week :) (For those of you that missed where I was going - I"m going down to LA, doing the Disney thing, and then catching the Mexican Disney Cruise for a week)
Anyway, I did manage to get one card done, and thought that I'd share! I got this Technique Tuesday stamp not too long ago - I love you - Eyechart, and had to make something. Some little info about me - I used to work as a manager at an optometrist office for about 5 years before I had my first son, so I've always been drawn to any eyecharts because of that. But this - I saw it, fell in love with it and had to get it.
I used Echo Park Yours Truly papers to make this card, and so proud that I actually used some kit stickers for this, instead of using diecutting files! I have all sorts of stickers that comes with the kit and never get to use them!
So, here's the simple card that I personally was proud of today :)
I love how the Maraschino twine from The Twinery just added that 'umph' to my card without adding too much to it.
You like? I must say that I loved my idea of magnifying glass on the card. I made that file using shapes from the Basic Shapes folder in SCAL/eCAL. I stamped the image on a white paper, then I enlarged it by using a photocopying machine. I then just took the magnified portion and cut it and topped it with an acetate to make it look like a glass.
Hope that you liked my card :) I will try to get in one more little project done before I leave! Thanks for stopping by!
