Quick post today because I might need to go help a friend get a storm window in place before severe weather rolls into our part of Oklahoma again. This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Heart2Heart: Nip & Tuck (using stitching, real or faux)
Everything I used is CTMH except for the sentiment (Verve, Friendly Phrases). Cardstock is Heavenly Blue (retired); inks are Pacifica, Cranberry, and Heavenly Blue plus Versamark for embossing; stamp set is Sightseer.
here. I like her use of the border along the top better but, if you look very closely at the "YOU" in the detail shot, you'll see that the top of the Y has some smudges. That's not from poorly stamping the sentiment...it's from poorly stamping the bottom border by getting ink on my pinkie finger and transferring it to the paper. I probably should have turned my cardstock over and started again, but I just now thought of it. Duh!
I believe the tail of the paper airplane qualifies as faux stitching. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
This is going in my next batch of OWH cards. Red, white, and blue "Miss You"...what could be more OWH'y than that?
Until next time,
Love your take on "transportation!" Very CAS and cute as can be.ReplyDelete
Amazing, love the paper airplane.ReplyDelete
This is adorable! I love the globe as a watermark.ReplyDelete
Of course the tail is faux stitching!!! I love how the border looks, and I would never have seen the smudge if you hadn't pointed it out!ReplyDelete
The 'stitching' is great as is the whole design. Nice example of CAS done right! Hope the bad weather misses you. Stay safe!ReplyDelete
Becca, what a fun, whimsical card. Sorry to hear about more bad weather nearby. Gee, enough already! I took that Online Card Class as well. Trying to decide if I want to take the next 3-week class :)ReplyDelete
Great card - love the faux stitching as the paper airplane trail.ReplyDelete

What a cute card! Love the stitching -- it's really well done.ReplyDelete
Hope you and your loved ones are all safe after the storms.
Pinkie ink? LOL That's never happened to me...jk. I hate when that happens, but honestly, I would never have noticed until I read about it. I personally love CAS cards and I love how you did the border on your card. I'll have to remember that technique. Thanks for joining us at H2H.ReplyDelete
