Thank goodness it’s Friday! My card today is for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge 108, which is to soften the edges, CAS style!
We were to round some corners or soften the edges of something on our cards! I used the Top Note die to make some round-edge embellishments for my really CAS card:
as well as rounding the edges of a Beau Chateau Side Note:
The note itself actually says “Family” but I wanted this for a birthday card, so I stamped a sentiment from Bring on the Cake on watercolor paper and attached it right over the existing sentiment. I also stamped the French script from French Foliage right on top of the Beau Chateau designer paper. Finally, I added some lace, ribbon and button trim.
On the inside, I used the remaining Top Note panel with a birthday sentiment:
and I added some more French script to cover up a “booboo”—can you see it? A little shadow from the edge of my rubber---grrrr, I hate that! I got my Craft scissors out and trimmed that baby off after I saw that! Hopefully the recipient will be so thrilled with her card that she will not notice the smudge!
I hope everyone on the East coast is bracing for Hurricane Irene. My father lives along the coast in Delaware and I believe he will have to evacuate, so I am preparing for that, if only for a few days. Plus the baby has developed thrush in her mouth, so we are dealing with that as well as teething! I am praying we can have a good day and I can find lots of things to distract her from her discomfort! Have a blessed day!
