What do you get when you mix a light colors with a more masculine element? A beautiful card!
The ax is from the new Flower Market Cricut Collection (Z3285), cut from Chocolate (X5643) and Cashmere (X5932) cardstock. I sanded the handles to make them look a little more weathered, and then raised them with Thin 3D Foam (Z2060). The background is Seaglass Cardstock (X5789) dry embossed with Happy Thoughts Embossing Folder (Z3249). I wanted to highlight "Be Happy" so I sanded it to reveal the white core. Having all the different words is what I like about this embossing folder. Using ink to highlight a word is another option.
The saying is one of the sayings that comes with the Flower Market Collection. That was stamped with Chocolate ink (Z2811) on Slate (X5930) cardstock. The card is finished off with Silver Assortment sequins (Z2013).
The pattern for this card came from CAS(E) This Sketch #180. : )
