…an active alchemy

Sharing a birthday card featuring a lovely digi from Make it Crafty called Chelsea Hugging Legs, gotta love us Aussies for our (un)imaginative names!

To create my card, I’ve followed the sketch over at Creative Friday, I just enlarged the square element to fit my digi.  Used a chippie from Uniquely Creative I picked up at the recent Paperific Show to add my sentiment. 

Unfortunately, in this set a couple of words were missing the dots for their i and ‘wish’ was one of them.  Luckily, I was planning on playing along at CAS-ual Fridays for their current sequin challenge so I just used one for the dot.  Added a trio of larger ones as the only other embellie on this card to keep the focus on the pretty image.

Over at Simply Create Too they’re looking for stitching and I’ve gone for some of the faux kind.  I cut my image using a stitched square die from Simon Says Stamp! and then cut it again from my top cardstock and used the negative space.  This is an awesome set of dies as they have stitching on both sides of the cut.  To add a bit of dimension I popped the image up on some foam tape.  Love how a bit of stitching can add interest to an otherwise CAS design.
