Featured Artist/Designer: Christine Larson 06 25 2015

Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Christine Larson. Before we show you Christine’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…

ChristineLarsonProfilePic-250W-06252105Thanks so much for letting me join you all here at Paper Crafters Library again.  I’m super excited!

I’m Chrissy and I’m a former officer in the U.S. Air Force.  My husband was also in the Air Force and often teases that I’m CINC (Commander In Chief) of the household because I keep things running and everyone takes their orders from me.  He has no idea how right he is!

I have three boys who I homeschool.  Needless to say, they keep me busy.  My solace in the day is my craft space and card making is how I unwind.  Little did I know when my mother introduced me to making cards in high school just how big a part of my life it would become.  I remember teasing her about her obsession with stamps and paper and now I’m 100x worse than she ever was.  I own and run the CAS(E) this Sketch (CTS) challenge blog and it should come as no surprise to you that I’m obsessed with sketches.

I enjoy sharing my crazy creations and ideas with you guys and I hope you enjoy my card for you today.

Awesome Card


I had a blast making this card for you guys today!  I made it for my cross fit trainer because he has taught me so much and he really is just AWESOME!  Ha ha.
 I decided to use this fun ombre background paper and layer a grid patterned sunburst die cut.  This die is made to wrap around a card so I did just that and I love how it looks.  Next, I cut my “Awesome” die in both yellow and teal cardstock to layer on my sunburst.  I offset the yellow just a bit to create a shadow of teal.  This really helped my sentiment not get lost in all the patterns. I then cut a “U” and “R” from my alphabet die and popped them up with some foam tape just above the “Awesome”.  I didn’t want to spell out the words “you” and “are” because I didn’t want to have them compete with the “Awesome”.  This worked out just right.  Finally, I added some cut chipboard asterisks, enamel dots, and bling.
 I hope you enjoyed my card and, again, thanks for having me!
