Bordering on Romance

Did I mention that this week CAS challenge is spotlighting and what a GREAT technique that is?  Make sure you check out my other card which is more of a ‘traditional’ spotlighting card!

I learned this technique (Pierced Spotlighting) from the <a href=””>Technique Junkies newsletter</a>.  It just love it because it gives a different look from the traditional spotlighting technique but is quick and easy…you know…my favorite thing.  The other thing about this card which is fun is that although it looks like a square card it is actually a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 finished size!

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White.  I added a piece of the Daffodil Delight print from Attic Boutique to the bottom and rounded the corners.  Next I too a 5 1/2″ strip of Pool Party added a thin 1/8″ strip of Chocolate Chip, cut into a banner, stamped the greeting (from Family Reunion) using Chocolate Chip and added to the card front.  I stamped the image using Chocolate Chip CRAFT ink on Watercolor paper and clear embossed.  Next I cut it out using the Label Framelits.  I pierced a circle around part of the image and colored inside the circle using Markers (So Saffron, More Mustard, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand) and a Blender Pen.  Once that was done I added this piece to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.
