My blog posting yesterday mentioned moving home and that reminded me that my little stock of ready made cards didn't include any New Home cards. Often people send you a change of address and it's a scramble to whip up a card and post it off so I usually keep some on standby.
Also, a lovely card arrived in the post from Gill who sometimes drops in here and comments.That gave me another prompt - embossing lines around cards! This is the card from Gill, isn't it gorgeous - thank you! I love the little birds - so cute:
So, out came the Eazi Score board and I did a quick make:
It's an 4.5" x 6.5" cream pearlescent card, lines scored round the edges, topped with a Core'dinations die cut oval and then a very simple image (which came from Craftwork Cards ages ago) coloured - again very simply as I doubt if there are many houses that look like this one :) - with Pro Markers.
The sentiment is a clear stamp which came free with a magazine. I had fun with this one I can tell you - my 'thinking head' was having a rest day today (it's this hot weather I reckon) and when I did a test stamp I was convinced that the stamp had been wrongly cut and was a mirror image. Silly Billy, after fiddling around on acetate thinking I could use that somehow, I realised I'd stamped it upside down on the test piece of scrap paper. A good job I'm timid of stamping straight onto cards and always do a test stamp first!
Although I used a snippet for the brown oval, I have plans for something else to enter into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge that's a bit more taxing - once I find my 'thinking head'.
That's my 'simples' offering - I'm off to stand under a cool shower for the second time this morning if this weather continues. Shouldn't knock it though!
