I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Hi again,

This is my second post today. I have a card that I made last night using a brand new Paper Smooches set that I think is super fun. It's got that mid-century modern vibe, so right up mine and Mr. Personal Chef's alley. We have our living room and in-kitchen dining area decorated in the style.

The sketch comes from this week's Freshly Made Sketches.

The card base is a side folding note card of thick Whisper White card stock. I dry embossed the front with a We R Memory Keepers EF. The horizontal element is a piece of Rina K Electro-pop Neon Flock in Screamin' Green. So Fun! 

The PS images are stamped on regular WW card stock using Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics using colors appropriate for the mid-century modern design. I fussy cut them out and used Dimensionals to pop them up per the sketch. The sentiment is part of the set and it's stamped using Rina K Electro-pop Screamin' Green ink and cut out with a small oval die. I added three little candy dots for embellishment.

On the inside I've used the other two images from the PS stamp set. The sentiment here is from Gina K. and fits the theme of the card perfectly.

I cut a very small strip of the flock paper to use as a base for the pot and plant. I angled the sofa slightly and free hand drew in the wood floor. 

I really love how this card turned out. 

Thanks for looking in, and again, everyone stay safe and well!
