Wow, can you believe it's the last day of July already?
I'm playing along in this week's challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays. It's CFC #13 - The long and short of it.
The challenge is to make a 4" x 9" card...and keep it clean and simple. I like to vary the size and orientation of my cards. So, I was up for this challenge! Sometimes it's difficult for me to do "clean and simple", but I've been practicing. And, I'm loving it, too.
This is what I've created.
Bing! From that point on, it all flowed...well, except for a little frustration with the embossing. But, I won that battle :)
I used a new stamp set from Lawn Fawn (at least it's new to me). The sentiments in this set are so cute and so versatile. They were created to be used with another Lawn Fawn set, but I already had this cute typewriter stamp from Hero Arts. I think they work together just fine.
I stamped the typewriter twice, cut out the second one after I embossed it and popped it on top of the first image. Then, I stamped the "paper" portion of the stamp 4 times and used several combinations of words to stamp those. I curled the first one around a pencil to give it some dimension before I adhered it to the typewriter with foam dots. My last step was drawing a border around the perimeter of the card with a Stampin' Write marker. This was such a fun card. I hope the recipient enjoys receiving it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Thanks for stopping in!
