My husband and I are getting ready to take nearly three weeks off to go visit family. In that time, we are celebrating birthdays for both our kids, two nephews, and one niece-in-law plus one graduation and four anniversaries. August is a busy month! Here are a few of the cards made today:
All supplies by CTMH and are entered in the Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge.
I embossed with clear powder over Cocoa ink, then added three more layers of embossing powder to get the thickness. I thought about adding a pin on the back of this to turn it into a button, but I'm pretty sure the person I have in mind for this card would NOT go for that. Below, the "ribbon" is pleated paper which I then straightened back out and stamped "CELEBRATE" on the ends.
Below, the background was done using the shaving cream technique. I've had it sitting in my scrap drawer for at least three years. Not sure where the idea to weave three of the five background ribbons came from, but I thought it looked pretty cool. The present stamp is discontinued CTMH; the words and wood grain are current CTMH.
Whew! Now I need to find envelopes and put them with the stash of things to pack.
Until next time,
