While he got a chance to play video games, I slipped into my stamp room to make a card. I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration.
I stamped both the flower image and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and then embossed the images with Clear Embossing Powder. I love the dimension embossing adds to a card. I only wish I could capture the look in a photo.
I used my Janome Sew Mini to sew around the layers of my card on both the outside and the inside of my card.
Whenever I don't post a picture of the inside of my card, I get several requests to see what it looks like. I'll try to be better about remembering to show you the inside as well. I like to keep the inside of the card pretty simple--no embellishments (brads, ribbon, etc.) and no dimensional layers so the card will lay flat when closed. The front of my cards are usually bulky enough without the added bulk from the inside.
I'll be back tomorrow with the latest color challenge from the Diva Coffee Break Design team. It uses several colors that I normally don't use, so we'll see if I can pull it off. Thanks for stopping by! ~Dannie
