Card Recognition

love at first sip




Today I'm filling in over at 365 Cards and the challenge is "beads".  So I'm sure your next question, "that's nice Erin, but where are the beads in your card?"  They're hiding!  Actually they're behind the velum and they provide a really fun different bit of texture.  I asked the boys "Can you guys guess what's hiding in this card?" and Mr. Ben responded with "stickers?  crystals? mardi gras beads."  Yep, that's it, I up cycled some mardi gras beads the boys had for this card.  Thankfully their revelation on the mystery crafting goodie did not then lead to a melt down on "you ruined my necklace."  Since I've used the fun Verve set Better With You I'm going to play along with the Moxie Fab World Stamp It "Love" challenge.  I know I've been making all sorts of wine themed goodies lately, but my other favorite theme is anything coffee related.  So, cheers, happy Monday morning!

Materials: Verve Better With You, Hero Arts Newspaper background, PTI Mat Stack 4 die, Tim Holtz distress ink vintage photo, Versafine black ink, Stampendous black embossing powder, vellum, PTI cream card stock, burlap, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder, water color pencils, PTI kraft card stock, mardi gras beads
