Well, I'm finally back from vacation and I swear my mojo stayed behind! I had to create my card Thursday night to have it ready in time for the sneak peek image I shared last night (or earlier tonight if you are reading this at midnight :O) I STRUGGLED even though I had a TON of ideas that I jotted down at work. When I got home and tried to put them to paper...no dice! So, I went an entirely different direction that what I originally intended. This is what I came up with.
I used the faux embossing technique on the main image and rub ons for the sentiment. Everything else is pretty apparent I think :O) I kept it simple!!! This came in handy for a graduation card for a friend of my daughter's yesterday. Great timing...so it's probably best that I went a different direction! LOL Here's a shot of the inside. The flowers are rub ons and the sentiment is stamped.
That being said, I came up with an idea at work yesterday on how to finish the first card I started Thursday night. I owe a friend of mine a HUGE thank you! This card will go to her. I kept the yellow to a minimum on this card...only using it on the button, the faux border stitching and the ribbon ties. This is my favorite of the two :]
Oh, and just in case you're wondering, I created the faux border stitching by paper piercing and drawing a line with a chalk pen along the holes. The faux stitching on the "crazy quilt" was created by drawing black dots with a marker and using a white gel pen to cross "stitch".
I hope you can play along this weekend! The color palette inspired by the cute bag is so pretty and easy to work with (even when you're sans mojo :O) If you do play along, be sure to stop by Lauren's blog and link your creation using Mr. Linky!
