Artful Delight Friday - You = Awesome, Me = Grateful


Hey everyone!  Here to share my Artful Delight card for this week.

This week I built my card around that great Maya Road ruler embellishment.  I loved the protractor portion of it and thought it was the perfect focal point for a sunburst/ray element.

This was a little tricky to create.  I placed the ruler element on top of the patterned paper and used an actual ruler and pencil to trace extensions of the lines.  Some careful lining up with my paper trimmer, taking care not to cut all the way through, and it ended up being a pretty easy task to remove the negative portions.


I like a little dimension to my cards, so the rays are mostly adhered, but I didn't fully adhere the ends to get a little lift out of them.

This mathematical Paper Smooches sentiment was perfect.

I wasn't quite sure how it would work out when I started the card, but I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Supplies Used:  Artful Delight September Card Kit; CTMH - Gold Embossing Powder and Liquid Glass; Versamark; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
