I cannot even explain my excitement right now!! This is my very first EVER post as a Design Team member!!! (I think I can fit a couple more Exclamation Points on there!) !!!!
So I'm keeping this post simple to make sure I do everything correctly! Please visit Sketch Saturday to see the great card sketch they have for this week, check out the work of our fabulous Design Team, and of course link-up your own work!
For this week's card, I chose to flip the sketch on on its side! (Yes, you CAN do that--brilliant, right??) I needed a classy Thank you card for my Aunt who hosted a HUGE family get-together in her home for Christmas, but I just wasn't feeling anything too girly. This sketch lent itself quite well to the task!
The banner sentiment is raised on foam dimensional tape, and of course, inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added the 3 metal brads from my stash, and used my homemade bow-maker to create a double bow of jute-thread to tuck under the top-most brad. (Please notice that the washi tape I used to hold the sentiment-strip down while working on it, damaged the paper a little when I went to remove it, but I actually think it just adds to the aged and weathered look!)
We really DID sit on the fireplace hearth at the party, so I thought this sentiment was perfect. I ran my Hobby Lobby Ivory Heavy Cardstock through the printer so I could make a sentiment that I didn't have in a stamp.
Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out Sketch Saturday!
AND HAVE A SAFE AND FABULOUS NEW YEARS!!
