Well, today is Thursday, but it has seemed like Saturday all day to me. But then that's what it's like when you are retired. EVERY DAY is Saturday...lol.
Today I made a card for The Stamp TV Weekly Challenge. This week Sylvia has invited us to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) one of the designers on the Design Team, and she has picked Karen Hightower. Karen's work is FABULOUS!! Just go HERE and take a look at her fantastic creations.
Here is Karen's card I chose:
And here's my card:
I am such a fan of heat embossing on vellum, so Karen's card really caught my eye. I have to make a confession - I'm really, REALLY lazy. Karen had stitched the vellum to the patterned paper, and I just didn't feel like pulling out my sewing machine for one stitch line. So, I hand stitched the vellum to my patterned paper with gold thread. I kind of love how it turned out, and it really wasn't too much of a hassle. I used a tool called the Scor Bug Embosser. The Scor-Bug is a rotary tool which is used with a scoring board and embosses a row of pearl like little bumps adding texture and relief to your card stock. Oh, and I think the gold foiling on the background patterned paper is so elegant and matches the platinum embossing powder I used for the focal.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Sandy Beach Card Stock
DCWV Copper Foil Card Stock
DCWV Cup of Cheer Patterned Paper
GKd Christmas Joy Stamp Set
Stash Gold Thread
Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder
Martha Stewart Stars Punch
So that's it for now. Wonder what I will be doing tomorrow, when it feels like Saturday again....ha ha. Hope your week is going well. And thanks for your comments, they mean the world to me!!!!
