Metallic “Hello” Card with Inchie Tiles

November’s ODBD Operation Write Home Challenge is to make a card using rarely used tools or techniques.

Since my last card was cutesy, I wanted to make a more classic and uni-sex card for this challenge.

I decided I would use an “inchie” flourish stamp that I hadn’t really ever used and turned to OWH sketch #60 for my layout.  Also, since I haven’t used embossing powder in a long time, I used some on my “Hello” sentiment to make it gold and shiny to match the metallic gold card base.

Cupcake Card for OWH Sketch #145

Operation Write Home Sketch #145, Clean and SImple Sketch, CAS sketch

 

I started with the above sketch and then  widened the skinny strip just a bit to accommodate my sentiment and added some layers.  Here is my take on this week’s Operation Write Home sketch (#145):

"You & Dessert Are the Best Things in Life" Stampabilities sentiment stamp, Shine On 6x6 Basic Grey Paper Pad

I had fun using this sketch to combine this paper and sentiment!  Also, since this card is pretty cutesy and girly, the next one I make will be more uni-sex.  I’m aiming to have a balanced/variety of different cards to send off to Operation Write Home before the Valentine’s Day December 31st deadline.

Thanks for taking a look!
