This time, I took Jaydee’s “CAS” challenge to heart, and made an absolutely simple card with her fabulous sketch:
This pretty paisley pattern from the Print Poetry pad in the mini was calling to me! It wasn’t until after I made my card that I realized the color in the paper was NOT Summer Starfruit, but more like Crumb Cake! (It’s been so dreary here, I’ll blame it on the lack of sunlight!) Well, I’m sticking to it, because this card is already in the mail to a friend who had a slight bicycle mishap when a truck collided with him! Yikes! He’s okay….a couple of broken ribs and some cuts and bruises….but I thought the collage image from Postage Due was perfect. I added a few more collage-y elements from the French Foliage set, a little sentiment and it was done!
Now, of course, my stamping instinct wanted to add more, so I did another card, stepping it up a bit:
I sponged the edges, added some postage stamps, and since everyone is posting videos of how to dye the pretty little flowers from the Artisan Embellishments Kit, I thought I would throw in my two cents---yes, you can dye the burlap ribbon TOO!!! I just daubered some Summer Starfruit ink right on the ribbon and voila! Colored burlap! I just love this effect…and now I have another get-well card in my stash! And THEN, I used the scraps from the projects and made a third little card:
