Just a quickie post today – we’re off to a End-Of-Summer-Laser-Tag-A-Thon. Fun! Anyway, I recently had my first card class in about 6 months. Because I have had a lot of Thank You’s to write, several of the cards we made were Thank You’s. (Although at class, I get out my trusty box of A Muse sentiments and people can put whatever they like on their cards!) This is one of the ones we made.
I first saw this pattern made with PTI’s Grid Lines 2 and their Grid Lines papers somewhere in the PTI gallery. I wish I could remember who made it so I could credit them. Anyway, I loved the color combo and decided to use it myself. Only after making one of the cards, I realized there was NO way this was time appropriate for class! So I decided I would go ahead and stamp the patterned paper for them. Dude! That took forever! I had to stamp 5 full 8.5×11 sheets like this! Good thing I had some good tv on the DVR! I do like how it turned out though!
supplies: Grid Lines 2; Ocean Tides cardstock; Pure Luxury White Cardstock Pure White in layering weight; Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss Base weight; ocean tides, summer sunrise, dark chocolate palette inks; satin ribbon from Michaels; and corner rounder.
Not a color combo I would have put together on my own – and I love to play with colors. I hope you are off doing something fun for the end of summer vacation!
