A Card for a Jeweler

A Card for a Jeweler

I have a jeweler friend I wanted to make a card for, so I used my Sweethearts Cricut cartridge to cut different styles and shapes of rings on assorted shades of metallic cardstock.  Then I freehand cut gems for the rings and made them shine with a coating of Glossy Accents.  Then I used double-sided puffy mount tape to bump up some of the rings for added dimension.  I love this DCWV Taj Mahal cardstock that a Twitter friend Kim sent me – I used it in the card because I thought the gold foil flowers went well with the card.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
