So today's card is a simple, but fun one. I made this for my friend at work who was recently recognized with an award:
It's so fun to have a stamp set that includes a sentiment like this! And I love the look of Kraft and Raspberry Fizz! Who knew those two colors could look so good together?! This card, like I said, is simple, but there are a few details to it. I added (my favorite) scalloped borders and popped the star up with a foam dimensional. When it was done I wanted to add yet some more detail. I was too lazy to get out my sewing machine, so instead I pierced the edges of the background paper by hand with a paper piercing needle. It's hard to see, but it does add a little something extra:
And that's all there is to it! Thanks to Debbie Olson, again, who gave me the inspiration for this card. Sometimes simple is the way to go!
Have a great day and I'll see you back here tomorrow for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Hey, did anyone notice I posted every day this week?! Whew...don't know how much longer I'll be able to keep up, but I'm going to try!
