Card Recognition

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

congratulations


My girlfriend Vanda is putting the finishing touches on her new novel and by the time I mail this to New Zealand her deadline will have come and gone, so a fabulous card is definitely needed for her mailbox.  I tried out this week's PTI Make It Monday technique, or a CAS version of it at least.  And since the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol submission deadline is right around the corner I'm adding these beautiful cards to it too. 



Materials: PTI Happy Trails, PTI Mat Stack 2 sentiment, PTI Bookprint impression plate, Brillance Moonshine ink, PTI kraft card stock, Basic Grey patterned paper, PTI Happy Trails die, Versafine black ink

Congrats cards: PTI In Bloom Impression Plate, PTI Think Big Favorites #5 sentiments, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord & Fired Brick, Versafine black ink, vellum, PTI kraft card stock, black card stock, water color paper

These are all fabulous, Erin! The first one is my favourite and I think Happy Trails is going to give On My Couch a run for its money in your hands. LOL
