So here's what I came up with. I loosely based this card on a sketch from Paper Crafts Magazine. But it took on a life of its own, as cards so often do! I inked the edges of all of my paper in Gray Wool ink. Inking the edges always makes it look more finished to me. If I had a sewing machine, I would have stitched it - sort of a patchwork quilt sort of deal. And the kraft color-ready border was the perfect finishing touch, along with some Opaques stuck on!
And once Tanner got busy playing with adhesive tubes (sealed of course!) and ribbon at my feet I had another two minutes to embellish a matching envelope!
Success. And a quick cute card to send out for a special someone's birthday!
So go sit down with some scraps, and see what you can create! Have a terrific weekend!
