For about a week, I had an idea in my head for a card. I recently purchased a soft black top with sparkly silver beads on the pocket and edges of the sleeve. I figured I could take my double-sided Red-Line tape and adhere a line or a pattern to some black cardstock, and then dump silver glitter on it to form a sparkly line. In 2005, when the family was helping me prepare to sell my Grandma’s house, I came across some old art supplies from when my mom, aunts, and uncle were living in the house. I saved some vintage “Sparkl-It Non-Tarnish Aluminum Glitter” in a jar, among some other useful art supplies. I decided to use it when making my card.
Before actually making the card, I was thinking it would be fun to do a checkerboard pattern on a card. I was flipping through my DCWV paper stacks when I came across some fun black & white 1980’s-looking paper. This reminded me of one of my best friend’s photos from her Senior photo session in 1990.
So, here are the inspirations for my card:
Here is the finished product – the black and white card I made, inspired by a t-shirt and a friend’s photo. I think it would work on its side with the buckle at the bottom, but I also really liked it as a portrait length card. Click on any image to view it larger:
That was fun, and I think I will look for more things to inspire my card-making creativity!
