It's been a busy week and i snaffled a few moments for myself to make a card! It's a sort of masculine encouragement card, for a chap I know who is dithering over a decision. I guess you can tell that I'm not 'on the fence about it' lol, I do think the biggest regrets are often the chances we don't take!
Anyhow, I used a terrific little Spellbinders leaf die template from the Foliage set.
I trimmed out 3 different sizes of patterned paper (Tim Holtz Paper stash - Kraft resist) and I die cut the same foliage piece into each of them, ensuring that the die cut fell in a place on each piece that would enable me to line them up nicely.
I then sponged theraputically with several shades of brown distress inks and added a little red stitching to two of the layers.
I cut a piece of red card, stamped with a gingham from Gingham and Co and sponged some more. I layered this behind the largest piece of patterned paper. I little line of mushroom coloured ric rac up the side of the front panel was just about right I thought.
The sentiment is from Words of Wisdom, and I stamped it in cream ink (PTI) onto a little taggy shape thingy I cut with a punch....just can't remember the right name for this...
anyhow, hope it tickles!
Don't forget to check out the Challenge blog tomorrow, there's a new sketch up in the morning and then on Sunday it's our Blog waltz!!! Come and play!
