This card features “Rock Star” thick paper from DCWV.  It comes in three sizes: 12″ x 12″, 8″ x 8″ and 4.5″ x 6.5″.  I have the small size for cards, and I really like this size because each design is smaller than the way it looks on the larger 12″ x 12″ size.  This smaller size is ideal for cards.

I used sticky crystals, a silver sentiment sticker,  fun punch that I outlined with a silver marker, and a silver metal gift sticker to pull the card together.

Here is a close-up of the metal sticker I found at JoAnn on clearance a while ago:

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.
