Friends card (CTD #119)

21 Nov

It has been over a week since I was able to post. I was preparing for a craft show last Thursday. Every minute I had was used to create more products. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to upload some of my creations soon. Today, however, it was nice to just create! I went over to Color Throwdown to see their collection of three colors this week #119

I chose a tone-on-tone for the celery color, dark brown cardstock for the espresso and a patterned paper with pears to cover all the colors. Here is the finished project:

It was simple to put together. After creating the card base and adding the patterned paper mat, I cut/embossed the S4-218 Lattice Borderabilities® Petite.

To add interest, I used the rusty-looking ink to color over the die holes, using it as a template, like this:

Then I stamped the “friends” sentiment, inked the edges and put it all together. So simple yet, elegant, I hope.
