Hello peeps! Today's card uses the CAS(E) this Sketch sketch:
What a cute little retro sketch! I wanted to make a masculine thank you card for a friend who made me a cornhole game! Do you know what cornhole is? You can read about it here. It's basically a big bean bag game! Everywhere I go, people play and I can't participate because I can never get any practice in, so I finally got someone to make me one! (You know how unsports-minded I am...but I CAN play cornhole!) Now I just need to finish it--paint or stain--and make my beanbags and I'm good to go! Cards in Envy also has a Feels Like Fall challenge, so here's my take on both:
Normally I would not use Early Espresso as a card base, but after trying several colors, it seemed to be the best to bring out my pretty leaves from Rooted in Nature. After stamping, I diecut them with the Nature's Roots framelits. I also heat-embossed a sentiment from the retired Watercolor Wishes:
The lineup of trees from Winter Woods worked well for the vertical images on the smaller panel; I stamped these in Soft Suede and repositioned them on the Crumb Cake panel and stamped again without reinking. I love the depth it created!
I placed a piece of Whisper White cardstock on the inside on which to write my note, and added some more leaves to embellish it:
Thanks for popping in today!
Cassidy sent me this picture the other day while she and Mommy were taking a walk; I guess she liked the clouds at sunset!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
