Yeah! Well, after all that, it really was something simple, but not that I could fix! Next time it happens, at least I’ll know what is going on.
Today’s Bloggers Challenge was to use the colors Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip! I have been using these colors a LOT since they appear in the designer specialty paper, To The Nines! These specialty papers are especially nice…a cover weight (cardstock) designer paper that are great for boxes, but add a bit of texture to your cards, too!
I pulled out one of the Occasions Mini sets, And Many Mower. I loved it because it has a golfer and my husband is an freak about his lawn looking nice. Plus, my father loves to tool around in the yard. I thought I’d get a lot of use out of it for all the men in my family (and it has some nice greetings in it, too!)
The shape is a 5 1/2 square card. I used two different patterns to combine for the square 5×5, they are layered onto the Very Vanilla so that a little window of the Very Vanilla remains to stamp on. Then that is layered on the Sage Shadow base. The stripe designer paper carries all the colors and I also used my markers to color the lawn mower…maybe not your traditional lawn mower colors…but I used a little creative license! I wrapped some 1/4 Chocolate Chip grosgrain around the top layer and added a Sage Shadow tag…from Lots of Tags Sizzlet die…to the knot. Finally, I used a couple mini glue dots to place the Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button on the bottom right, tied in the center with some Linen Thread.
