Card Recognition

Friday, May 10, 2013

thank you teacher




So I already follow along enough card challenges to make my head spin, so I hadn't jumped in to the Muse Challenge (yet), but Lynn's card really stood out in my google reader (yeah one of these days I'll get around to switching out of reader).  I thought, "Oh I'll make a red card" and look-- back to the ol favorite kraft base :)  I've got a few more challenges for this card-- A Passion for Papertrey is to stamp your own background and I've used the Hero Arts tweed background and the Happy Trails pencil for the background of this card.  And lastly, this week's PTI Make it Monday challenge was to use something other then paper to emboss and I made this fun card earlier this week with tin foil, but in the video Heather used aluminum tape and I said in my earlier post that we probably have some in the garage, but the DH was out of town, well he's home and when I asked him this morning if we had some he said yes, so I embossed the tape with a Tim Holtz sewing embossing folder and it looks like an awesome little ruler.  Lastly I stapled on some May Arts ribbon and asked Ben to write up a math problem for my card, and I'm done! 

Materials: PTI Happy Trails, Hero Arts tweed background, PTI notebook die, Fiskars circle punch, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Versfaine black ink, PTI kraft ink, aluminum tape, May Arts chevron twill ribbon, staple, PTI kraft card stock, October Afternoon patterned paper
