After completing the Take Ten Design Challenge in 2011, I liked the template so much, I created 2 more cards with the same design!
The versatility of the template speaks for itself.
The pink card uses the Thanks stamp from the Stampin' Up "Lexicon of Love" set and a miscellaneous scroll that I picked up on sale at JoAnn because I loved it. And I got to use the beautiful border punch over text. I copied an old book page and misted it with SU Ruby Red re-inker. I also misted the originally cream-colored paper flower with the same ink to achieve the same color.
I have never been able to part with this card...and if I do, whoever receives it will be getting a VERY special card.
How many of us have cards that we just cannot use? We should take a poll!
This masculine Thank You card uses a variety of images from a Graphics 45 sheet and some rub-on gears.
I misted the card with black ink to "antique" it. Each section of the card was layered, and I inked the edges of each piece. The green/gray background layer is Tim Holtz paper. Antiqued Brass brads, coil and a gear over a clock face added some steampunk pizzazz. A twisted fiber also adds interest without frills. The sentiment is also Stampin' Up.
I was able to send this card to my father -- and I received some high praise!
Thank you for looking at my cards today!
