You're Rad !

Greetings !

Thank you so much friends for your kind comments on my previous card that I shared yesterday. Your motivation really keeps me going. :)

Sharing a fun card today inspired by this week's CASology challenge where the cue word is 'Silly'.  The moment I saw this cue word, I knew I wanted to play along. I usually make dreamy, scenic cards but with this challenge, I knew this was a chance to get creative and try my hands at making a cute, fun, 'silly' card. :)

Here's what I came up with :-

Well, this 'madly in love macho man' does appear kind of cute and silly and makes me giggle. :)
This was inspired by the very popular trend of using emoticons. They are everywhere on the social media and applications, isn't it ? So, keeping up with the trends and adding my own 'sillly' add-ons, this one-layered card came into being.

The Process:-
1. Drew a circle on the card base using a yellow colour pencil with a help of a circular stencil.

2. Keeping that stencil still in place, sponged the memento and distress inks in different shades of yellow, so that it somewhat looks like an emoticon.

3. Stamped the spectacles and the moustache from this hot off the press stamp set shown below, using Archival black ink.

4. Stamped the tiny hearts from the Waffle Flower bowtiful stamp set, using memento rose bud ink.

5. To give those spectacles a glimmer, applied versamark ink over the 'glass' area directly with my ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. You can also use glossy accents for this step if you don't have the embossing tools and powder, the only downside of glossy accents being that they take a long time to dry, whereas clear embossing is quick and effective too.

5. Finally, stamped the main sentiment from the same 'hot off the press' stamp set and also added 'Oh Em Gee' on the inside of the card at the bottom, so that it peeks through and goes with an overall trendy feel of the card.

I think it would make a great 'Dad' card.  Let me know how you like this card. Does it make you giggle too ? :)

Thanks for visiting and leaving me your comments.
