Tonight I made a graduation card for my niece. She graduated 2 weeks ago but we couldn't come because there are only so many tickets to watch the graduation. Sort of a bummer-but it's ok!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Textures
Frilly and Funkie: Kraft paper and Twine
Here's my card. I used the Tim Holtz fade Damask on the Kraft paper and put it as my background. I used brick red Distress Ink and Gold Paint Dabber. That is my new favorite combination!
There are 2 pieces of twine-one from Martha Stewart and the other from Queen and Company.
Here's my piece of kraft paper before I did anything to it.
I changed the color of the star because I wanted to brighten up my tag. Gold was my first choice though. I used several Distress Inks on my tag. The star stamps and sentiment are from Stampin' Up.
Here's a close up of the tag. I really like the versatility of these stamps. And there are two more pictures and matching sentiments in the stamp set. I won these stamps at Maggie Made Cards. Woo Hoo! And this is the first chance I have had to play with them. I used white embossing powder for the star and black ink for the sentiment. Pop Dots are on the back of the tag to give it some depth.
This is a close up of the ribbon. It was a beige lace and then I added a few drops of Distress Stain to them. Love it!
And here's my card again. Until next time my friends...have a great weekend!
