Good morning! I’ve got a quick pair of cards to share today! I’m visiting my parents and internet is not quite as speedy here so I’m going to keep it brief!
I recently picked up this cute Neat and Tangled stamp and wanted to make a fairly simple card using it as the focus! I’m not usually big into layers but thought this would be a fun way to play with patterns and textures! I used a scalloped edge die and stitched rectangle dies to cut all the patterned paper and kraft cardstock. I heat-embossed the sentiment with gold tinsel embossing powder and popped it up with foam mounting tape for a little extra sparkle and dimension! Finally I added a little kraft and gold twine and enamel dots! I tend to hoard patterned paper and this was a great way to actually use some of my stash! Here’s a closer look at each card…one is more teal and floral:
And the other is more pink!
These were quick to put together and it was fun figuring out what papers to mix and match! I also have the Neat and Tangled Pumpkin stamp…I may have to make a fall-themed set, too! Oh and I did get one card mailed out today. I brought a stack of cards with me and I’m hoping to work on them tomorrow!
