More Hand Cut Arrows

I so wish you could see this card in person it's super cool.  There is a misting of Gold Smooch Spritz that makes it look fabulastic!  I have to tell you am having too much fun making my own sizes and shapes of hand cut arrows.  For my Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #158 I decided to use a jumbo arrow to set the stage and follow the diagram.  

You can see from the sketch I put a bit of a spin on the challenge.  Instead of an oval panel overlapping the upper larger rectangle panel I opted for a greeting.  Let me give you a quick rundown of the details for my hand cut arrow card.
  • Sand a piece of Basic Black card stock with a sanding block.
  • Use the "direct to paper" technique with a Whisper White ink pad.
  • Hand cut a jumbo sized arrow using a square punch and a piece of This and That Epic Day DSP.
  • Hand cut an arrow using a square punch and a piece of Lucky Limeade card stock.
  • Stamp the geeting from Word Play with Whisper White ink and emboss with White EP.
  • Assemble pieces to the card.
  • Add Epic Day This and That washi tape.
  • Add a Silver Designer Button with Bakers Twine from the Boutique Boxes kit.
  • Spritz with Gold Glimmer Smooch Spray.
Do be sure to hop over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments site and check out all the super cool takes on this challenge.
