Hi all. It's been a rough week for me - I contacted some kind of a cold bug and my throat has been so sore I could hardly swallow for a couple of days, (good for the weight loss!) It's not as bad now but all I do is constantly cough - it gets very annoying and it hurts. But enough about me, I will be fine eventually!:)
I thought I would share a card I whipped up in about 10 min! Yes seriously, I had my card order done for my co-worker then when I checked her list I realized I forgot about a card for her brother. Darn! okay so I have about 45 min before I have to head to work so what am I going to do. Started going through my stamps and I came across this image from Le Blanche. Have you ever used their stamps?
They stamp very nice.
So to keep it masucline looking, I had to force myself to cut into a piece of textured wood grain paper that I purchased at Paper Pickle. It's not cheap, buy hey, I bought it to use I told myself, so cut it!!
LOL. I am such a paper hoarder, I really have to let go and use some of the gorgeous papers I have had for a years.
I stamped the image using Memento Rich Cocoa directly onto the wood grain paper, then layered it onto a piece of dark chocolate c/s. Out of some scrap paper I cut a fish tale flag for the corner, wrapped some textured ribbon around the image and taped on the back. Now for the 2 half circles on the bottom left, well somehow, yes somehow I managed to get a smear of brown ink and of course I had to cover it up. One 1/2 circle didn't look right so added another to balance it some. My card base is kraft, card size 5.5 x 4.25.
Finished off with a button and some twine.
There you have it a very quick and easy card. I'm sure I will be making more of these.
Well, that's it for today. Have yourself a wonderful day, and again thanks for stopping in and leaving me comments. Love to read what you have to say.
Next up -..... a gorgeous wedding card. Stay tuned.
