The Perfect Time

Hi everyone!  Today's card is a pick-me-up or encouragement card you can send to a friend, family member, or anyone.  The Rubber Cafe' January KOTM It's a New Year is full of inspiration to create cards like this one:

Base: 4&1/4" by 5&1/2" gray cardstock.

First Layer:  4" by 5&1/4" orange cardstock, glue to gray base using Scrap Happy Glue.

Next Layer:  3" by 4" piece of aqua pattern paper glued to 3&1/4" by 4&1/4" gray cardstock mat and foam tape to center of card front.

Center Stamped Panel: Stamp clock in Pumice Stone Distress Ink, in the center of a 1&3/4" by 3&1/2" piece of gray cardstock.  Mat on 2" by 3&3/4" piece of orange cardstock (but do not glue bottom half).

Stamp sentiment using Staz-on Black on acrylic piece (about 1&1/4" by 2&1/2") and glue as overlay on stamped clock image, add small strip of aqua pattern cardstock, orange banner, and sequins.

Here's a closer peek at the acrylic overlay:

Create a 4" by 1" strip of chevron pattern paper, mat on a 4" by 1&1/4" strip of gray cardstock.  Add foam tape to the very ends, slip under gray portion of the bottom of the tag, and glue using Scrap Happy Glue.  Glue tag and strip piece to card front.

Thanks for stoppin' by the cafe' today!  Stop back soon!
