Feeling MUCH better today. I think sometimes the changes in weather bring on my migraines! I had 3 people call off sick for last night’s class, so I wasn’t the only one feeling under the weather.
I showed you the square Riding Hood Red roses card I did HERE. At the same time, I made another unusual sized card…this one is 4 x 9 to fit in a legal sized #10 envelope.
I love the softness of the Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette colors on this card! I used the Brayered Debossing techinque on the Manhattan Flower Impressions folder with Shimmer paper, cut it out and layered it on Whisper White. Since I had a lot of extra space at the top, I added some Tea Party Designer Paper at the top, used the Eyelet Border Punch for a strip under the DSP and tied some Pink Pirouette striped ribbon around it to hide the seam. I also had room for my favorite greeting in On Your Birthday, "Live, Laugh & Love…happy birthday", stamped in Pretty in Pink. The base of the card is Pink Pirouette cut 8 x 9 and folded in half to 4 x 9. On the envelope (not shown), I stamped the coordinating stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral several times in the botton left corner with Pretty in Pink.
Note: Although I like the Shimmer paper (used here) with this technique, I found that I LOVE this done with Glossy Paper. I used a damp paper towel and wiped across the debossed side before I started brayering the color on…I thought it blended MUCH easier…so experiment! I’ll show the difference on tomorrow’s card!
Need to go get ready…I have a couple friends coming over to play today.
And, can you believe it? The car deal fell through…it was a demo car instead of a new car. So aggravating…now we are looking again. You’d think in today’s economy, these dealerships would be JUMPING at the thought of selling a car! Not so!
Have a GREAT day!
