Hope everyone's had a good weekend.
I met a friend for a day of talking, eating, and shopping -- probably in that order -- yesterday and picked up a couple of yummy 6 by 6 pads of Christmas paper. Put one of those pads to use on the card below.
|Authentique Festive; Hero Arts stamp, heat embossed in Distress Ink Vintage Photo; corner rounder, hole and ek border punches|
Why is it that my cuts and paper placements always look so much straighter in my craft (aka menopause) room than on this computer monitor screen? Hmmm...
Anyway, love that the paper is two-sided. Love the designs in the collection. Thought the font of this sentiment felt right with the old-fashioned feel of the paper. And, I was pleased with the look achieved by applying just a touch of Distress Ink to the top edge of the plaid paper.
I used OWH Sketch 139 for the design. (Since I don't have any brace/bracket dies, I went with a corner rounder for the top paper.) Also, I went with the red and green palette for this week's Midweek Throwdown Challenge.
Hoping to make an Any Hero card using Sketch #139 this week. [In January, I resolved to make an Any Hero card for any OWH sketch I used during the year. Not quite as ambitious as Kathryn's resolution. But, a resolution I still want to keep. :) ]
And, I'm really looking forward to the card-making party at Scrapbook Art this coming Saturday. If you're interested in joining us and need some info, please click here.
