Hi! How are you? I hope you are having a fantastic week! Have you seen the full moon? Wowza. The moon has been huge here, and the sky is very colorful...making for some very spooky nights, and very pretty mornings. Mornings aren't really my dealio, but since I'm up anyway it's nice to see the pretty sky! Anyhoo...on to a card! Remember a couple of weeks back when my work laptop died and had to be brought back to life by the (super) nice IT guy? Well, I wanted to make him a card to go with a big batch of cookies. He's a guy, and I don't really know him that well, so I wanted to keep it simple. Here's what I came up with:
The leaf was stamped in a pretty bamboo green pigment ink and then stamped off a second time underneath the first image. That's all! I matched it to some nice bazzill cardstock in a matching color.
The leaf stamp is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I mounted the focal point paper onto a kraft card base and added some twine. The sentiment is stamped in brown for a more earthy feeling.
Here's a neato trick for putting any kind of twine, thread or thin ribbon - make a tiny half circle with your punch and then it will stay put!
And...now...I would like to unveil Mr. Buddy's 2011 Fall Portrait! I think he's looking quite debonair in this photo...don't you?
