I saw the idea for this shape of card on the create and craft channel ( I think it was Debbie Moore) and thought I'd like to give it a try. I like the way the whole card is made out of just the front piece.
I actually made this with really thin card as a trial and was surprised by how well it stood up, so thought it would be useful as a quick notelet.
I wanted the square part to stand out from the border when standing, so I masked off the border and inked with tattered rose distress ink. I added the splashy background by using the background stamp from the beach babes plate. I used it unmounted and rolled it up so I could just "roll" the pattern onto the areas I wanted.
The flower is from the floriculture plate and the words are from the bits and pieces set all stamps are from rogue redhead designs
The less is more challenge this week is to make a one layer card using "3" as the theme. I decided to use 3 stamps all from one stamp company to make this card. It's that time of year when you need a thank you card for your child's teacher, and it's that much harder when it's a male teacher. But I think this one does the job okay.
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
