Artiste Just Because card



Today I gave a fun card that I made using the Artiste cartridge and the Cloud Nine stamp set. I mulled over the design, but then I remembered a cuttlebug embossing folder (part of a set called Skyward) that I have that has clouds on it. After that it all just came together.

After I embossed the cardstock I took sandpaper to it to expose the white core. Then I traced the outlines of the clouds with a white pen.

The sun is always there behind the clouds. What a lovely card to cheer someone up and remind them that there is a silver lining to every cloud. You brightened my morning!

What a great card, and I love "Just Because" cards, they always come in handy when someone needs that special squeeze and hug, especially from afar. Thinking I'm going to have to get this card set.

I love this card! I like the embossed clouds and I like that you use several layers to matt your cards. I want to work on that more. It adds a real dimension and beauty. They look very complete, put together. I like that. Thank you for continuing to inspire us.

I'm a huge fan of "just because" cards. I love to surprise a friend or family member with a "just because" card. I learned this from my mom years ago. She was an expert at sending cards. (I'm nowhere as good as she was, but I try!)
