"At least I wore a cardigan!" by Sharon Caudle

 Hello AI Fans!

I'm here with you today to show you the card I created for the Pretty in Pink challenge going on right now on Art Impressions Blog.  I don't know if any of you watch Tik Tok, but a while back, I saw a video where some friends thought it would be really funny to dress up their husbands in matching shirts for a party (without the men knowing about it of course). So while I was thinking about what I wanted to create, I came across my #4474 Old Guys Club Set and the light bulb came on! I just love the grumpy look on these guys, so I thought I might as well give them something to be grumpy about, right? LOL!  I stamped the image onto Cryogen white paper and then colored them us using Copic markers. I made the card super simple by using the largest #5062 Rounded Rectangle Double Stitched Die set.  I simply folded my cardstock in half and then placed the top of the die just above the seam of the fold and ran it through my die cut machine.  Voila - a folded shaped card!  I always cut another full piece of either the same cardstock or the patterned paper I want to use and glue it to the front of the card base.  Doing that hides that flat fold that doesn't have stitching. Then I used the next size down to cut out my image panel. The sentiments were created with my computer and then cut out with some word bubble dies from my stash.   

Hope I gave you a little chuckle today! Sometimes we need that on Monday! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a crafty day!
