FS96 Creating a Card in Photoshop & Giveaway

Happy Sunday & thanks for stopping by Jennifer's Sweet Designs. Today's card is for this weeks Featured Stamper Challenge "FS96". Since I had a little time to stamp this morning, I cased a card from Anna's Gallery. As soon as I saw this card in her gallery, I got right to it. Dawn Easton did a beautiful card like this a while back and it was so cool that Anna cased Dawn. For my design, I am casing both.
Since I don't own any stamps large enough to cover the top note die, I opened up Photoshop and found an image that would work. Here is how I created a stamp for my design: I opened a picture in Photoshop, clicked on photo effects and change the photo to tint sepia.

I printed the image onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out the image.

I then layered the die with the image and ran it through my Big Shot.

After the image was cut out using my top note die, I added wet glue and sprinkle some Martha Stewart coarse glitter onto my image. I LOVE the way it turned out and really so simple too! Give it a try and let me know how quick and easy it was for you...


Want to win this card? Leave me a comment and you will be entered to win. I will announce the winner on Wednesday, December 10th.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful week!
