Atlantic Hearts Sketch #124: Nevermore Birthday

posted in: Cards | 13

I have a hostess who asked to do a mini workshop, instead of a regular gathering.  She wanted birthday cards and this month I’m focusing on Nevermore, so I’ve put together some Nevermore birthday cards!  Nevermore is a Halloween paper, but I had a lot of fun finding the things that work for something not Halloween related.

I decided to go search online for a sketch to use and landed on the Atlantic Hearts sketch for this week.  It’s been a really long time since I participated but I loved the sketch, so I had to use it.  Here’s the card I created.Atlantic Hearts Nevermore Birthday card by Krista Ritskes

Other than the Nevermore paper pack I also used the new Artistry Cricut collection for the flowers. I used the scallop edge punch on the one side of the paper strip. The sentiment comes from the Sending Love stamp set.  To finish it off I added some Grey Enamels in two shades.

I love being able to use things differently from the theme they were initially intended for.  🙂

  3. This is such a pretty card and definitely proves that Nevermore is not juts for Halloween! I may have to CAS this for my September workshop as I am trying to show the versatility of Nevermore. Thanks for playing with us at AHSC.
