City Sights, Thinking of You Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Have you ever seen a handmade card, a stamp set or a stamping kit and just obsessed about it until you bought it or copied it?  Well, that's what happened here. I don't usually purchase kits. I saw the "City Sights" kit and thought it was so cool.  And I thought about it and thought about it and finally decided I needed to get it. Well, I got it and today I thought I'd play with it. Please read on to see how I put this card together.

The card base is preprinted and scored so you just fold it in half. I punched out the corrugated piece, the word piece and the city scape piece. The kit came with a cube of Pebble Path ink and stamps. I stamped the skyline on the punched out piece and that was it for the stamping.  Pretty simple and quick. 

Next I put the card together. First thing to put on was the corrugated piece, it was set in place with the Dimensionals that were included in the kit.

Then the city scape piece was added. Dimensionals were added to the top and some Tear n Tape to the bottom part, also included in the kit. 

The words went on top of the city scape using more Dimensionals. 

And for the final touch, three copperish colored "pearls" were added and the card was done. 

I just love the background on this card. I'd love to see Stampin' Up! come up with some Designer Series Paper (DSP) using a city background like that. It's SO pretty.  This was a fun kit to play with. There's also another style card in the kit and sometime soon I'll put it together and share it with you.

Thank you for taking your time to stop in and see today's thinking of you card,

I haven't ever purchased any of the kits, but that one looks like it will be fun. Can't wait to see what else you make with it.
