I started with a navy card, added this cool piece of paste paper which I created years ago, added a strip of distressed yellow cardstock, wrapped some coordinating yellow fiber around the card front then added my layered light house photo (taken in PEI). This greeting matched perfectly so I trimmed it, layered it onto navy and attached it with 3D foam tape.
I am enjoying making "one of" cards!! I can use supplies from my stash of images, papers and fiber to create some unique cards!!
I forgot to take a photo of the wrapped cards. I used a square of decorative paper folded into an envelope and tied with fiber. Check out this posting to see another example and a template.
Quick and easy!!
The image was stamped over a hand made transparent acrylic paint background with black pigment ink and embossed with black embossing powder. I really like the way the high contrast silhouette of the image works with the background and how the fiber adds some softness.
An any occasion card!!
It was fun to work with fiber again!! It is amazing how many options there are for decorating cards!!
This is the first card I made. I received both images in swaps years ago and always thought they would go well together. I trimmed the stamped image of the cat (unknown) and used a black permanent marker to add a nice layered look to the edge. I trimmed the fish bone background (Magenta), layered it onto red and then added it to the black card front. I glued the little laser printed greeting that I found in my stash to the back of the cat image and glued it to the front of the background. I really considered colouring the image but in the end decided I liked the simple look of black and white with one colour.
I would highly recommend giving all your non cardmaking friends some handmade cards!! They are useful creative gifts which can give as a unit or sending along to their family and friends!! It is a win-win gift!
