As a Pet Shop Boys music fan, I now have “Always on My Mind” (a cover of a Willie Nelson song) in my head, thanks to the title of this post!  Is it in your head now, too?

I have some really cool Japanese paper from Paper Source and wanted to use it to make a card for a friend I hadn’t seen in a very long time.  I used some gold ribbon and wrapped it around a piece I had cut down to size.  Then I stuck the paper and ribbon to the front of the card and lined the edges with a metallic gold marker.

Next, I used one of my favorite label punches from Stampin’ Up! and punched a shape from pink cardstock. Before rubbing on a rub-on sentiment, I sanded the paper to reveal its white inner core. Then, I lined the edges with the gold metallic marker and attached the shape with double-sided foam tape.  The card needed something more, so I punched out some 1″ squares with another shaped paper puncher and lined them with gold.  I attached some beautiful swirl stickers and placed them on 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.
