It was a busy weekend with family. My cousin and her husband drove out here to CO from Chicago. Their daughter has been living with us for a few months after moving to Denver. She finally got into her new apartment and we all moved her belongings into the new place on Friday. We’ve had a busy weekend of visiting, sight-seeing and having a good time. Now it’s time to get back to reality. 🙂
I designed this card for a swap I participated in. I do have to admit that I was pretty pleased with the results. This is actually the first card I used my new favorite on…corrugated paper! I tell you….I can’t get enough of it! Love that stuff! Since the corrugated paper pack comes with both kraft and white and I’ve only been using the kraft I’m going to have to design something with the white. I’m thinking the white will be perfect for a Christmas card! Don’t you? The card is really quite simple but I think it’s rather striking. Isn’t the little acorn from the Into the Woods Elements cute? To color it I simply took my Sponge Dauber and rubbed the ink directly on it. If you try that sometime be sure to rub off the excess with a tissue or you’ll have the ink all over you.
Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
